The Wizards in just less than an hour will make their third attempt at getting that first win of the season, this time against the visiting New York Knicks.
Wizards — G Antonio Daniels, G DeShawn Stevenson, C Etan Thomas, F Caron Butler, F Antawn Jamison.
Knicks — G Chris Duhon, G Jamal Crawford, F Quentin Richardson, F Wilson Chandler, C Zach Randolph.
Wizards — Gilbert Arenas, Brendan Haywood, Oleksiy Pecherov.
Knicks — Eddy Curry, Jared Jeffries, Stephon Marbury.
It should be an interesting game given the Knicks’ run and gun style, and the potential mismatch problems they present with Randolph starting at center, although he’s really a power forward, and the quickness of the lineup. The Wizards will need to get off to a quick start, but at the same time will try to slow down the game to limit New York’s offense.
