John Wall and the new-look Wizards will be in their first game action tonight as they host the 76ers in the first preseason game of the year.
The Washington Wizards will be in action for the first time in what feels like forever when they the Philadelphia 76ers in a preseason opener on Friday at 7 pm. You can find the game on CSN.
If you are planning on watching Wizards preseason basketball, the reason is likely to see just how much John Wall has improved during the long Summer/Fall off. We've heard stories throughout the lockout that Wall had been working on his jumpshot, and from the highlights we saw of those pickup games he was absolutely dominating. It will be itneresting to see how those new skills translate into the NBA, and the preseason should be a pretty smooth transition period. After so much time off, this will be a good time for Wall to show off, and I expect him to take it.
We'll be following this game, and the other preseason game that the Wizards will be playing against the 76ers in this SotryStream, but for more on everything Wizards, head over to Bullets Forever.
