Bet on Grizzlies vs. Wizards

Trust in Wall. The Wizards certainly do. Although its a back-to-back with some travel, expect Washington to be re-energized with its leader back on the floor. Even if he has a minutes restriction, it should allow the Wizards enough time to establish control against a team going through the motions.
