LeBron James

Unlike most nights, this game was packed (although not quite), due to who was on the other team of course. LeBron James, Anthony Davis and former Wizards star Russell Westbrook were in the building tonight. Davis was the more dominant force, scoring 55 points and grabbing 17 rebounds.

Bradley Beal

Washington started on the wrong foot and trailed 68-50 at the half. The Wizards weren’t just shooting much worse than the Lakers. Bradley Beal also suffered an apparent hamstring injury just three minutes into the game. In short, after Beal’s injury, Washington was basically done for from there. After the game, head coach Wes Unseld, Jr. said that Beal’s injury was likely a hamstring strain.

Rui Hachimura and Delon Wright

It’s unclear if Beal will miss a significant number of games because of the hamstring injury. But a couple of other Wizards players like Rui Hachimura and Delon Wright are also missing games due to ailments of their own. Coincidentally, Wright also has a hamstring injury.

Kristaps Porzingis and Kyle Kuzma

Kristaps Porzingis and Kyle Kuzma deserve some credit for putting up big numbers in the third and fourth quarters, respectively. Porzingis had 27 points and Kuzma had 26 points. Daniel Gafford was another bright spot tonight, where he scored 19 points on 9-for-10 shooting from the bench in just 20 minutes.

Either way, any second-half comeback by the Wizards was too little too late.

Unfortunately for Washington

Unfortunately this game was a #SoWizards home game. Most of the fans came here to root for James, Davis, Westbrook (even though he once played here in Washington) and Lakers fans got what they wanted: a much-needed win for their playoff hopes. Unfortunately for Washington, they are now 11-13 and 11 in the Eastern Conference.

Chicago Bulls

The Wizards’ next game is against the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday. The announcement is at 8 pm ET. Until then.
