Weekend Preview: What To Watch

March is here, and college hoops is raging full blast, the Wiz are actually beating teams with winning records, and the Caps desperately need to gain ground in the Southeast Division. Below is a preview of what to watch, why, and the best place to watch it.

Friday March 1

New York Knicks at Washington Wizards (7 p.m.): This is a big one, not because the Wiz will make a playoff run or anything, but because it seems the young Wizards team gets fired up to play good competition and big-name franchises. Tonight is that chance. A good performance from John Wall would be great, especially after speculation that Wall was pouting on the bench during a retracted dagger loss to the Pistons Wednesday night. Best place to watch —  For this take your cheap ass to Verizon Center; you can probably get a deal on an upper level ticket and boo Carmelo in person. Also, please scream at the thousands of “New Yorkers” that actually live in Columbia, Md., and Woodbridge, Va., that will undoubtedly be in the building.
