Keep an eye on:

Washington's Energy: is something to watch tonight. Coming off a tough loss to the Lakers Thursday night and facing a pissed off Clippers team tonight, who's also coming off a tough loss to the Lakers on Wednesday, the Wizards have a huge test ahead of them. Combine that with their current state this season, having the worst record in the NBA and Washington has every excuse not to provide maximum effort tonight. However, as professionals, with numerous young players still trying to earn their keep in the NBA, even with the postseason long out of the picture, Washington still needs to come with a mindset of playing to win the game.

Clippers Efficiency: is a huge deal and something that makes them VERY potent offensively. The Clippers rank sixth in the NBA in field goal percentage (49.2%), third in 3-point shooting (39%), fifth in free throw percentage (81.8%) and tenth in turnovers (13.2). Six players average double figures in scoring as well, led by Kawhi Leonards 24 points per game. Washington's best bet is to play sound, disciplined defense to try to disrupt LA's offensive flow and efficiency to give them the best chance possible to get a win tonight.
