The Washington Wizards have been downright awful on the defensive side this season and aren't a team I'm eager to back. The fact the Wizards haven't played in a couple weeks only makes things worse, as they haven't had a chance to gain a rhythm. I can't get behind the Wizards at all until I see something positive from them. It's the Spurs or pass.
