The Wizards are playing well and are still fighting to sneak into the playoffs. We know how great the Warriors are, but they're not blowing teams out like we're used to seeing, as they have their mind on the playoffs. Also, Wall destroyed this Golden State defense last time these teams played.
I like the points.
