The Washington Wizards got a much needed rest with the All-Star break, can they come out strong in their first game back against the Milwaukee Bucks?
The Washington Wizards had a pretty bad first half the season, by almost any definition of the term "bad". But the All-Star Break is over and that means they have a chance to start anew, sort of. Their first opportunity will be in Milwaukee on Tuesday night as they take on the Bucks in a game starting at 8 pm.
The Bucks are not a very good team either, and it could be a good opportunity for the Wizards to start out the second half of the season on a good note. They sit at 13-20, which is not even close to Playoff contention. And considering that Andrew Bogut has had a lot of trouble staying healthy, I don't think they'll be able to get themselves in that conversation.
