Wizards vs. Spurs 8:30 pmPosted on January 14, 2013 by FantasticWiz
Jeremy Hyman - WashingtonWizards.com The preseason will come to a close tonight in San Antonio as the Wizards take on the Spurs at the AT&T Center. The Wiz are coming off back-to-back wins over the Bucks and Heat and will try and carry that momentum into tonight's game and then into the regular season. Wednesday night we saw more great things from Martell Webster, who led the team again in scoring with 23 points. His play this preseason has opened some eyes around the league.
Webster is averaging 13 points and four rebounds per game in the preseason and is making a case to be a starter on this team. Starter or not, he should play a key role for the Wiz this season. Watch Webster talk about his role on the team and what he's hoping to accomplish this season. While Wednesday was a good test for this team against a loaded Miami Heat team, tonight's game should be no different against one of the powerhouses of the West in the San Antonio Spurs. However, we know that Spurs Head Coach Greg Popovich is known to sit his key guys during the regular season for rest, so don't be surprised if we see sparing minutes from their big 3 (Duncan, Ginobili, Parker). For the Wiz, we should expect to see more of the same as far as rotations are concerned as this will be Randy Wittman's last chance to get a look at certain lineups before we enter the regular season. The action starts at 8:30 pm on CSN or you can listen on WJFK 106.7 The Fan or WFED 1500 AM or online at NBA League Audio Pass.
