NBA Regular Season
Venue – Staples Center, Los Angeles
Two teams who are in either conference but have a similar record face off as LA Lakers host Washington Wizards in the regular season of the NBA on Tuesday.
LA Lakers were one of those teams who were a definite side going to be making the Western Conference playoffs this season, given they acquired LeBron James. They started off strongly and were cruising until James got injured, and since then it has been a sinking ship. Currently, they are in the 11th spot and hardly can put two wins in a row. This is not the legacy LeBron wanted to leave behind, and he will be fired up to push these youngsters to give it their all in the remaining fixtures.
Meanwhile, Washington Wizards are also looking to make their mark in the Eastern Conference. This team saw a lot of internal problems at the start of the campaign, which saw John Wall being critiqued over his physical appearance. He is earning a lot of money but wasn’t justifying his price tag. To make matters worse, he got a horrible injury which saw him miss the rest of the season, with only Bradley Beal being the only player in the team who is a legitimate All-Star. The management has got a job in their hands before next seasons, in order to acquire some assets to build a team around.
