Washington-- On paper the possibilities for the Wizards against the Oklahoma City Thunder are not promising.
Its hard to ignore the symmetry.
When Bruce Boudreau was fired as coach of the Capitals on Nov. 28, they had a 12-9-1 record and were in eighth place in the Eastern Conference standings.
Around Washington, it seems that only Congress has lower approval ratings than Rex Grossman.
After winning three straight despite being outshot by a total of 40 shots on goal, the Capitals were winning with a clear caveat: Things mustnt continue or else their luck would run out.
John Walls outlet pass to JaVale McGee for a dunk in the third quarter was one of his eight assists, but not one of the Wizards' finer moments.
