Washington Wizards Betting
The Washington Wizards did everything they could but it was a tough night for their most vocal leader in Russell Westbrook. He only played 29 minutes and left the game early after rolling an ankle in the fourth period. Westbrook finished with 10 points, 11 assists and six rebounds but his shooting was only 20%. Bradley Beal tried to carry the team with 33 points and he needs to do more as his tag team partner is now doubtful for Game 3. If Westbrook decides to play, he won’t be 100% and they would need guys like Rui Hachimura, Raul Neto and Davis Bertans to step up.
