How things might unfold

Pistons, on the other hand, have been impressive at home and can outwork the Wizards tonight. They have the size and the crowd on their side as well.

The Wizards have strengthened their bench and are looking a much better team after the trade deadline.

This is the third and final meeting between the two teams this season. They split the first two meetings, so the winner claims the head-to-head tiebreaker, which could end up determining who makes the playoffs and who heads home early.
