Fresh off of a dominating victory at home, the Washington Wizards will try to earn their first victory away from the Verizon Center this season as they take on the Charlotte Bobcats tonight on the road.
Washington has gone 0-17 this season on the road, a dubious mark that they will attempt to improve on as they will face a Charlotte team that only has three more victories than the Wizards. The two teams split their previous two meetings, both in Washington. Point guard John Wall having a double-double in the first meeting, a 93-85 loss, and was inactive due to a knee injury in the second game, where the Wizards won 108-75.
It is expected that the Wizards will yet again be without swingman Josh Howard, who missed last night's game with a sore left knee.
Given all of Washington's road struggles, they will need all the help they can get tonight.
