    Got to take advantage of the fact that Nene is out.

    I hope that JV comes out strong in this one, his confidence has been down and he is over thinking too much as of late. He needs to chill a bit and let the game come to him again instead of being overly aggrassive and forcing things.

    lets get the season sweep!

    Need to be aggressive in the paint. Without wizards version of a rim protector in Nene, this should be easier.

    Rebounds have been an issue against the wizards as well.

    I hope to see good performances from our sophomores. Hopefully, Lowry and Demar look for JV this game!

    I'll certainly be missing Nene blow it at the FT line in late game situations, like last time.

    Also worth noting, Gortat dropped 18 and 11 on us a week ago, JV only played 17 minutes. He'll be the main presence inside with Nene out, we'll have to see if Jonas can handle him this time around..

    Back off Wall, and let him shoot.

    Wall is shooting just over 33% from 3 this year, he is getting much better

    Right, but I'd still take that over his drive & kick game.

    Our bigs took over that game in the second half. JV doesn't have an issue with Gortat - he has an issue with Wall and Gortat in pick and roll. That's where Gortat got his points, particularly in the first half. I would expect the Raps will be swarming the pick and rolls much more tonight than they did early in that last meeting.

    With the Wizards, it's all about Wall. If you can contain him you basically take Gortat, Beal and, well, everyone else out of the game. They just play off Wall.

    Every team has someone we need to stop. Thinking like that is the mentality we need to win in playoffs. Forcing the secondary players to beat u increases your odds for success. If we stop John Wall we will win easily tonight.

    They have a couple of newbies on the team....can always make a diff the first couple of games. Andre Miller who will be a good change of speed type to backup Wall and Gooden. Who knows how he'll fit in.

    The good thing about our backup point guard match up is as bad of a defender vasquez is I think him and Andre Miller is actually a good match up. Vasquez has the size advantage on him and that is what Miller usually uses to score. I'm relying on Vasquez to at least keep him in check.

    Another big game! One guy that worries me tonight besides Beal and Wall is Ariza. The guy is shooting lights out from 3 lately. 5/5 last game against the Cavs. 10/14 a couple of weeks ago.

    For the Raps, i think DeRozan will have another big game.

    I think JV has hit the wall. He has had hardly much rest since the end of last season plus the weight he has put on (adjustment). Hope he takes this summer off except for cardio training and tweaks to his game (foot work. positioning).
