The small lineup of the Milwaukee Bucks has given the Wizards trouble, but now that they've been forced to play "small ball," too, since Nene's injury they should be better prepared to defend.
Earlier in the season, this is the kind of the game the Wizards would let their guard down and lose. That doesn't appear to be the case anymore.
It's impossible to not look at the big picture with 22 games left in the season for the Wizards. They're in the tenuous No. 5 spot in the East with the Chicago Bulls (33-27) slightly ahead at No.
The size of the Memphis Grizzlies, difficult to deal with for the Wizards even when at full strength, is too much to overcome when depleted.
