Predicting the Wizards Record: Part Two

It’s time to predict Washington’s record in the months of December and January. This is part two of a three part series, which will conclude tomorrow.

December

1st at Toronto Raptors

Prediction: Win

3rd versus Portland Trail Blazers

Prediction: Loss

5th at Phoenix Suns

Prediction: Loss

7th at Los Angeles Lakers

Prediction: Loss

8th at Sacramento Kings

Prediction: Win

10th versus New York Knicks

Prediction: Win

14th versus Los Angeles Lakers

Prediction: Loss

16th at New Jersey Nets

Prediction: Win

18th versus Miami Heat

Prediction: Loss

20th versus Charlotte Bobcats

Prediction: Loss

22nd versus Chicago Bulls

Prediction: Loss

26th at San Antonio Spurs

Prediction: Loss

27th at Houston Rockets

Prediction: Loss

29th versus Indiana Pacers

Prediction: Win

31st at Indiana Pacers

Prediction: Win

Analysis: December presents some very winnable games–especially the double-header against the Pacers at the end of the month, but that West Coast trip will be a major challenge for the young roster. I expect the Wizards to finish 6-9 in December, and 13-18 for the season up to that point.

January

1st versus New Orleans Hornets

Prediction: Win

5th at Philadelphia 76ers

Prediction: Win

7th versus New Jersey Nets

Prediction: Win

8th at Charlotte Bobcats

Prediction: Loss

11th versus Sacramento Kings

Prediction: Win

13th at Minnesota Timberwolves

Prediction: Win

15th versus Toronto Raptors

Prediction: Win

17th versus Utah Jazz

Prediction: Loss

19th at Milwaukee Bucks

Prediction: Loss

21st versus Phoenix Suns

Prediction: Loss

22nd versus Boston Celtics

Prediction: Loss

24th at New York Knicks

Prediction: Loss

25th versus Denver Nuggets

Prediction: Loss

28th at Oklahoma City Thunder

Prediction: Loss

29th at Memphis Grizzlies

Prediction: Loss

31st at Dallas Mavericks

Prediction: Loss

Analysis: January could very well be a roller coaster ride for the Wizards. Six of Washington’s first seven games should be relatively easy victories, but the tail end of the month has the potential for a major losing streak. The Wizards play four straight Western Conference playoff contenders entering February. I foresee a 6-10 record for January, and a 19-28 record as they surpass the halfway point of the season.
