The Washington Wizards enter the Frost Bank Center tonight after a win against the Detroit Pistons. The Pistons are the only Eastern Conference team with a worse record than Washington, who have lost eight of their last ten games. After their display in a win versus Minnesota on Saturday, the San Antonio Spurs have no business losing this contest.

The Silver and Black are fresh off a pair of wins, defending home court from the Trail Blazers first, then the Timber Wolves on back-to-back nights. It was the first time Victor Wembanyama played on consecutive nights since November 5th and 6th.

He exceeded expectations once again, as he continues to put up numbers you'd expect from a veteran on a nightly basis. The team as a whole played consistent basketball in both games. With the Wizards next on the docket, the fans desire more of the same.

The Spurs are in position to do something they haven't done all season

San Antonio has yet to win three games in a row this season, yet the magical timing of the Wizards' arrival grants a chance to end that horrid nonsense. After beating this team in Washington nine days ago by four points, 210's finest should be able to showcase a better performance and end the night with a larger margin of victory.

While the Spurs have secured only 10 wins, their recent month-long journey reflects substantial growth. For a team moving in the right direction, losing to a squad in disarray amid efforts to trade key players is a setback they cannot afford. If the play of Wemby, Jeremy Sochan, and Devin Vassell continues, San Antonio should have no problem establishing their first three-game win streak of the season.
