🏀Wizards: The Wizards are hot hot hot. With yesterday’s 119–110 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Wiz are solidly holding on to the coveted 10th spot in the Eastern Conference. Even better, Bradley Beal scored 33 points, becoming the second player in franchise history to reach 13,000 points. Icing on the cake.

  • If the Wizards beat the San Antonio Spurs tonight at 7 p.m. ET, they’ll extend their winning streak to nine games. The last time the Wiz won nine straight? Back in 2001, when some guy named Michael Jordan was on the team.

🏒Capitals: Even without captain Alex Ovechkin — who, for the first time in six years (!!!), missed a game due to injury — the Caps beat the New York Islanders 6–3 in Saturday’s crucial game to remain atop the East Division. Teamwork makes the dream work.

  • They’ll look for their third straight win against the Isles tomorrow night at 7 p.m. ET. A win in front of the Caps faithful for the first time this season? It’s no D.C. statehood, but still something to be jazzed about.

⚾️Nationals: The Nats were shut out twice in their three-game series against the New York Mets over the weekend, including yesterday’s 4–0 stinker. Womp.
