Trail Blazers vs. Wizards: How to Watch, Join the Discussion!

Who will prevail in this battle between young franchises?

NBA: Washington Wizards at Sacramento Kings Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

The Portland Trail Blazers will finally face a team they’re expected to beat this evening as the Washington Wizards come to town. The Wizards have no Bradley Beal, no love, and very few wins to their credit. The Detroit Pistons and their “Couldn’t Win a Game if you Spotted Us 100” are stealing the limelight away from Portland and Washington and their losing ways, but one team will have slightly more bragging rights at the end of this contest while the other gets a step closer to great lottery odds. Which will be which? We’ll have to see together.
