The Wizards wrapped up a brutal west-coast road trip, where they played three of the best teams in the NBA on the road, with a loss to the Clippers Sunday night.
Going up against the first, fifth and 10th rated defenses in a four-game span would make any team's offense take a fall down the leader boards. So let's see how the Wizards stack up to the rest of the league after said challenge.
Centered around Bradley Beal's brilliance, the Wizards have a multitude of adept playmakers and finishers.
The Wizards play the Magic on Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. EST on NBC Sports Washington.
Isaiah Thomas and Ish Smith are good in pick and roll and score in different ways, Thomas Bryant is a strong finisher off the roll, and Davis Bertans, Moe Wagner and Rui Hachimura are talented stretch forwards who each have unique ways of spacing the floor and giving defenses issues.
None of those players are particularly strong on the other end of the floor, but that's not why we're here. The Wizards get buckets, and they do it better than almost every team in the league.
Here, we're going to lay out how the Wizards' offense ranks in the league in the most important categories and keep you updated throughout the season. And hey, if they start to pick things up even a little bit on defense we may be looking at a decently frisky team.
