Spurs Looking To Take Down Short-Handed Wizards

By Michael Rehome

The Spurs (21-5) with a win Wednesday night against the Wizards (10-13) will have the longest home winning streak in franchise history.

There have only been five teams this season that have defeated the Spurs and one of them will be at the AT&T Center Wednesday. The Wizards though are hobbled. They will be without one of their best players in Bradley Beal.

Back on November 4th, Beal was the reason for the Wizards to get a victory over the Spurs. Beal had a game-high 25 points and nailed a 3-pointer with 0.3 seconds left to seal the 102-99 victory.

The Wizards though are coming into an arena where the Spurs have been dominate this season. Four of the last five opponents that have visited San Antonio have lost by at least 20 points. Spurs have also won 22 straight regular-season home games.

Just when you feel that it can’t get any worse for Washington. The Spurs are coming off of their 118-81 thumping of the Utah Jazz. In that game, the starters were pulled the final 16 minutes.

On their current four-game road trip (1-2), the Wizards are giving up 110 points per game. Over their last three games the Spurs have won by an average of 28-points per game.

Definitely a tough road test ahead for the Wizards. Spurs are clicking on both sides of the ball, this should be the night where they make franchise history.
