Tuesday night, the Washington Wizards lost 95-107 to the Memphis Grizzlies, causing them to fall to 1-6 on the season. The Washington Wizards fought back from a double-digit deficit but the Grizzlies were too much in the end.
In Tuesday night’s game, the Wizards turned the ball over 20 times which came back to haunt them in the end. Coming into the season there were high expectations for Washington with the summer additions of Austin Rivers, Jeff Green and Dwight Howard.
Needless to say, things have not turned out for the better. Howard has yet to suit up for a game but plans to return against the Oklahoma City Thunder this Friday, according to The Athletics’ Shams Charania.
Obviously, the Washington Wizards are playing well below their potential but it’s not time to panic yet in the nation’s capital. Yes, Washington is 1-6, but let’s not forget that they are in the Eastern Conference that lost two major stars in the offseason.
Considering the fact that the Washington Wizards have two All-Star guards in their backcourt anything is possible. Of course, the clock is still ticking but there are three reasons why it’s not time to panic in D.C.
