The Washington Wizards will play their first game with Randy Wittman as their head coach against the Bobcats on Wednesday night.
The Washington Wizards will play their first game under interim coach Randy Wittman on Wednesday night when they host the Charlotte Bobcats at the Verizon Center. The game starts at 7 pm on CSN.
The Wizards got pretty lucky with their scheduling, or perhaps they set it up that way, but Wittman gets a pretty easy opponent in their first game. The Bobcats only have one more win than the Wizards (3) and rank in the bottom five of the NBA in both points scored and points allowed per game. In fact, they have the worst defense in the entire NBA in terms of points allowed, so it may not be pretty, but we could see some points scored in this one.
