If you are like me then you are not an insane person and couldn’t stay up to watch some of these games last night on the west coast. But, if you are like me then you are also really sad that you didn’t get to stay up and watch these two teams pick up some nice wins.
First, the Wiz:
Kieff poured in 28 pts, including going 6 for 10 from deep. Oubre with 22 off the bench and a nice line from Brad Beal: 25 pts, 8 reb, 7 ast.
It took an OT effort, but that is a HUGE win to pick up on the road in Portland to start the road trip.
It’s funny, because Mike and I were just talking about how worried we were for this team headed into the next few games but the boys balled out. (Except Ian Mahinmi who played four minutes, picked up two fouls, 0 reb, and 0 pts)
Next, the Caps:
Coming off the shootout loss to Florida, the Caps needed a nice bounce-back game. Ovie continues his rampage as he picks up four points.
Backstrom snagged his 600th NHL assist as well.
These types of nights don’t happen often for DC fans, so let’s definitely enjoy this one.
