Russell Westbrook is leading the Wizards alongside star shooting guard Bradley Beal as they have gone 7-3 over the last 10 games. They have moved up into the Play-In tournament contention and will likely make it. For awhile during the season it seemed like this Wizards team was not going to make it to the playoffs but Westbrook went on a tear to carry his team back up. His elite play at a crucial time could make the Wizards enjoy a solid playoff run.
While it will be tough as the Wizards will have to win the Play-In tournament to make the playoffs, they have a good shot. With Westbrook and Beal, they have the most star power of any team in the Play-In tournament and that is usually what prevails.
With the level of play from these dynamic superstars, they can have a chance in any series no matter who they play. Westbrook has averaged a triple-double yet again this season which will be the fourth time he has done this in his career. There is only one other person to accomplish such a feat in Oscar Robertson, who did it for one season.
Wizards fans shouldn’t fear anyone in the playoffs with the play of Westbrook and Beal.
