Prediction

- 105
- 95

Apparently Bosh is still going to be out for a while longer, so considering the Wiz are playing without their two stars right now we should be able to beat Antawn and the Wiz.

Predict and discuss!

Nope, I believe Feschuk mentioned this morning that Bosh had another scan on his knee yesterday and he's going to miss the next few games.

Before getting steamrolled by the Magic the Wiz beat a really good team - New Orleans. They beat them again about a week earlier.

Wiz are still dangerous, even without their two "best players." Practically everybody on that roster is having a career year. DeShawn, Daniels and Blatche have played well in wins. Jamison is stellar.

I wish it looked like the team was taking advantage of this time to gel without CB4. It seems they are treading water waiting for his return.

I think we should still win this one... Remember how pissed we were when we lost to the Wiz without Caron before? And now we're at home.

Really the only reason Washington has looked good lately is because they beat New Orleans twice, and it's natural to assume they just had their number like they did Boston. Otherwise in the last stretch, they got blown out by Orlando and Houston, lost to the Knicks, and beat crappy Charlotte and Chicago. Actually, that's better than what we've been doing lately...

we have to start winning these winnable games, especially since Bosh seems to be out for longer than anticipated, thus leaving us exposed as ever during the west coast trip coming up.

I'll be at this game. They haven't lost in my presence since 2001 against San Antonio. I shall be massively disappointed if we get our asses handed to us by washington.

what makes this a winnable game? I say it's a fifty-fifty at best. They beat us two times already, one with CB4 and one without. Blatche, Haywood and Young will destroy us tonight on the boards if we're not careful. Considering they come after a bad beating and we after a nice blowout, the best odds are that we lose a painful one, 55-30 on the boards ...

i agree that this is pretty much a toss up becasue with their respective stars out, the teams may be evenly matched. moremilk, this and next seattle game arr winnable compared to the next 3 after that...LAKERS, WARRIORS, DENVER. Without Bosh, we lose all 3, not chance.

Considering how effectively we've been rebounding I figure it will be a cake walk ??!!! They're toast if they can't rebound tonight. I remain eternally optimistic: Raps by 8.
