The Washington Wizards get one more shot to notch their first win of the season this weekend when they host the Utah Jazz on Saturday night.

In their last game, Washington lost on the road, 107-101, to the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday night. The Jazz meanwhile will be on the second night of a back-to-back on Saturday after taking on the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday night.

Elsewhere in the NBA on Friday, the Los Angeles Lakers make their debut under new head coach Mike D'Antoni when they welcome the Phoenix Suns, one of D'Antoni's former coaching gigs, to the Staples Center. Additionally, the undefeated New York Knicks are on the second night of a tough Western Conference back-to-back, as they take on the Memphis Grizzlies a night after defeating the San Antonio Spurs.

On Saturday night, the Toronto Raptors visit the Celtics in Boston in an Atlantic division battle, while the surprising Charlotte Bobcats host the Grizzlies and the Spurs welcome the Denver Nuggets to San Antonio.

Sunday features two matinee games, with the Knicks hosting the Indiana Pacers and Orlando Magic traveling to face the Raptors in Toronto. Later, the Lakers host James Harden and the Houston Rockets.
