What to Know

This Wednesday, the Washington Wizards are hoping to patch up the holes in a defense that has allowed an average of 120.1 points per matchup. They are on the road again Wednesday and play against the Portland Trail Blazers at 10 p.m. ET at Moda Center at the Rose Quarter. The Wizards have been getting the ball to fall more lately as they've increased their point totals each of their last three games.

Washington came up short against the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday, falling 133-126. The losing side was boosted by shooting guard Bradley Beal, who had 35 points and eight assists. Beal's night made it six games in a row in which he has scored at least 30 points.

Meanwhile, Portland took their contest against the Orlando Magic on Monday by a conclusive 130-107 score. It was another big night for Rip City's shooting guard CJ McCollum, who shot 6-for-12 from downtown and finished with 41 points, five dimes and five rebounds.

Portland's win lifted them to 27-35 while Washington's loss dropped them down to 22-38. We'll see if Rip City can repeat their recent success or if the Wizards bounce back and reverse their fortune.
