Charlotte Bobcats at Washington Wizards preview -- Game 19

Today's Tunes:

"Memory Loss" - Deltron 3030

Game Overview: These two teams are abominations. The Bobcats just got destroyed by a mediocre Knicks squad. The Wizards just fired Flip Saunders after a 2-15 start. But that is just the beginning of Washington's problems. The Wizards are a bad team with an often-inefficient offense that sometimes struggles to move the ball. John Wall isn't having an outstanding sophomore season, but it's not bad. Nick Young and Jordan Crawford are terrific at taking shots (though not nearly as terrific at making them). Andray Blatche is the most-hated man in Washington because of his lazy shot-selection, and in general, all-around laziness. JaVale McGee is a very talented defensive-minded center, but lacks focus on offense.

Hell, most of the Wizards lack focus, period. Same can be said for the Bobcats.

Key Matchup: Gerald Henderson vs. Nick Young -- Although Young is only shooting 40.2 percent, he's the Wizards' most effective scoring threat. His versatility on offense is best limited by his own shot selection, but Henderson's defense could also go a long way to forcing him into a rough shooting night.
