In their previous game, John Wall was one of two starters to be in double figures, as he scored 16 points and had 11 assists. Kirk Hinrich had 18 points off the bench, but it was still not enough as the Wizards were unable to snap their disappointing road losing streak.
Despite their attempts to end a dubious streak on the road, the Wizards will try and continue a positive one at home. Wall and company will look to win consecutive home games for just the second time this season. Their previous win was a 97-77 rout of the New Jersey Nets late last week.
This game will see the absence of Josh Howard yet again as coach Flip Saunders said he will be out for a week to ten days.
