Wizards Team News
If we’re honest, the Wizards haven’t exactly had much of a challenge as of late. They started off by facing a team from China, and then Cleveland and the Knicks without any main threats playing. This will be slightly different. The Heat currently have a very strong team and the Wizards will certainly be tested on this occasion. With John Wall recently signing a new contract, he will certainly be the main threat to the Heat. His raw scoring ability will be the main thing that could contribute to a Wizards win.
Heat Team News
The Heat are in a good place right now. They are past the Lebron James and Dwayne Wade days, and their future is certainly looking bright. They have a court full of youth, and have recently added Kelly Olynyk to their side, who is going seriously improve their frontcourt depth. They also have Dragic and Whiteside on their team who always seem to cause problems for opposition, so the Wizards will need to make sure that they are prepared. Dragic is very good at creating something from nothing, and if Washington aren’t ready for this, it could end up being a high scoring game in favour of the Heat. Miami also have the quality to score the chances they’re going to be given, so all of this needs to be kept in mind.
