Our Wizards Insider J. Michael came up just short on a dunk attempt at the Wizards annual All-Star event at Verizon Center. Watch that, among other events, here.
This week featured Alex Ovechkin's 40th goal of the season and some great action at the Verizon Center. Check out the Capitals' five best plays of the week.
About midway through the first half of Georgetown's game against Butler on Saturday, the Hoyas were playing like the team that had lost five consecutive games a couple weeks ago.
Markel Starks had 19 points, seven assists and zero turnovers while playing all 40 minutes as Georgetown defeated Butler 71-63 for its third straight win.
The Wizards played down to the competition by losing for the second time in two meetings at home to the Cavaliers, allowing a season-high 67 points in the first half.
The Wizards lost for the sixth time in eight overtime games this season -- and for the 16th time in a row to the Spurs -- despite 29 points from John Wall.
For a team that has been struggling to find a consistent identity, the Wizards are on the verge of an incredible feat if they can win Wednesday's game.
Aside from the tedious matter of finally getting over .500, the Wizards can win consecutive games for the first time in two weeks and get back to a winning record at Verizon Center.
The first time these teams played, Golden State still was able to go on a 30-5 run with Stephen Curry being kept under wraps by John Wall.
