Wizards (8-32) at Kings (10-32)
Wizards starters: Mike James, Caron Butler, Dominic McGuire, Antawn Jamison, Andray Blatche.
Kings starters: Beno Udrih, Kevin Martin, Brad Miller, Jason Thompson, John Salmons.
Refs: Mike Callahan, Bill Kennedy, Haywoode Workman
Line: Kings by 2.5
-In his pre-game chat with reporters, interim coach Ed Tapscott said he would likely expand his playing rotation tomorrow night in Los Angeles in the second game of a back-to-back set rather than tonight against the Kings.
-Both of these teams stink but at least the Wizards can point to injuries as an excuse. The Kings are fully healthy yet are off the worst start since the franchise moved from Kansas City to Sacramento (a move that broke young Mike Lee's heart by the way) in 1985.
-Both teams rank near the bottom of the league in opponent field goal percentage so look for a high scoring game.
-Tapscott's pre-game points of emphasis: no first-side jump shots and pick-and-roll execution on defense.
-Injured guard DeShawn Stevenson did some shooting before the game and said he is moving closer to a return. He said his back is feeling much better and that he just needs a couple of practices before getting back into the action.
