The 5 must-see moments from the Wizards' win over the Pistons

The 5 must-see moments from the Wizards' win over the Pistons

Here are the five plays or moments from the Wizards' blowout win over the Detroit Pistons on Friday night that are worth revisiting...

1. Markieff Morris was listed as questionable at the Wizards' morning shootaround on Friday, a gametime decision for their matchup with the Pistons due to his sore left foot. He was ultimately determined to be good to go and start. And it didn't take long for Morris to make an impact, including this big dunk on a fastbreak in the first quarter:

2. John Wall ignited a fastbreak on Friday night that wasn't off a turnover or a relay pass. No, Wall simply ran past everyone with blinding speed to create his own transition dunk opportunity:

3. Bradley Beal's first three of the night just happened to be the 500th of his career. It came from 26 feet after a Marcin Gortat offensive board:

4. Beal also had this sick up-and-under layup. Beal finished with 25 points on 10-of-16 shooting.

5. Wizards forward Markieff Morris blocked his twin brother, Marcus, on the fastbreak. It was a bizarre sight, and afterwards the two couldn't help but smile about it:

John Wall played 5-on-5 with 6-time All-Star Amar'e Stoudemire

John Wall appears to have made another big step in his recovery from Achilles surgery.

As the Wizards traveled down to Miami to take on the Heat Wednesday night, Wall took some time to play in 5-on-5 drills with a six-time NBA All-Star. 

Wall told Candace Buckner that he played 5-on-5 with Amar'e Stoudemire at a local hotel Wednesday. Stoudemire, a Miami native who hasn't played in the NBA since 2016, used to be one of the best and fiercest pick and roll finishers in the NBA. 

This is a big step for Wall, who was most recently playing in 4-on-4 drills with his Wizards teammates last week.

While the Wizards have not ruled Wall out from returning this season, the expectation is that his first game back will be in October of 2020. Meanwhile, the Wizards find themselves four games out of the eighth spot in the playoffs despite dealing with an unreal number of injuries for the better part of a month. 

We may never know how Wall looked in those 5-on-5's with Stoudemire or if the two played together. All I know is that Wall playing with a Stoudemire in his prime would be one of the greatest connections in NBA history.

Wizards vs. Cavaliers: TV channel, Time, Live stream, how to watch

Perhaps one of the worst losses of the year for the Wizards came against the Cavaliers in early November. They were on national television in front of their home fans and fell to a far inferior team 113-100. 

On Thursday night, the Wizards have a chance to avenge that loss in Cleveland. They'll have to contain Tristan Thompson on the offensive glass and force guards Darius Garland and Collin Sexton into contested jumpers to get the win, the latter of which shouldn't be that difficult. 

But if the Wizards want to push for the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference, they'll need to win games they should. Here's everything you need to know to watch the game on NBC Sports Washington.
