What you need to know about the Wizards
On Tuesday, the Wizards outlasted the Oklahoma City Thunder, 122-118. Kyle Kuzma had 29 points in addition to five rebounds and he’s averaging 27.7 points in January. Spencer Dinwiddie posted a double-double on 22 points and 10 assists. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope hit a tiebreaking three-pointer with 30.8 seconds left in the game.
The Wizards are 17-4 in clutch situations, which are games decided in the final five minutes with a point differential of five points or fewer. However, they will be without their best player as Bradley Beal is in the league’s health and safety protocols for the second time in three weeks. But the Wizards have played well without Beal as they are 5-2 when the three-time All-Star does not play.
