Wizards Game 6
Wizards gave a great fight until the 4th. Great game, great venue. Ready for next season
lame dc fans
I'm not going to another wizards playoff game! The stadium was only 2/3 full at halftime. The pulsating music and gag over hyped production was forced to try to provide enough energy to get the team over the finish line. Beal/Wall did their part no body else really showed up other than Ty Lawson. DC sports fan suck. I did like the ticketmaster app and then being handed a paper copy to find our seats. Oh and the food is awful at Cap One Arena...at least the beer was cold. signed...unhappy fan!
The Wizards Never Fail
Listen...if you haven’t been to a Wizards game what are you waiting for. Electric atmosphere, good food and beautiful people. I’ve gone to two games since moving to the area. Parking is good for Capital One Arena and you’re going to see a team that gives you 100% effort. And the fans in the stands...LOL! Amazing commentary. Ticketmaster is the best for tickets. Hey...get up and go!
This was my 4th game of the season, but my 1st playoff game ever. The energy was insane.
An experience like no other
I took my son and his friend, my son a Celtic fan,his friend a Wizard both 9 year's old and I had a blast enjoying the game and the argument. True fans
Staff is always rude and DC venues what it was called Verizon center a capital one arena Funny because it doesn’t take much to say hello thank you for coming or just being pleasant
This is a playoff team?
First, the good: even though it was a late season game against a non-playoff bound team, there were a lot of people in the arena, so that was nice. There was good energy around, as well. This was my seven-year-old's first basketball game so all that made it very nice. But, and this has nothing to do with the venue, the Wizards lost, convincingly, to the last place team in the entire league. They led for about 2 minutes throughout the game, and never by more than five points. It was pathetic. I laughed out loud when a Wizard was rejected while trying to dunk. Good luck in the playoffs, boys.
Games are always a good time with friends and family.
Washington Wizards at Capital One Arena
The Washington Wizards return in October to a made-over Capital One Arena in the city's vibrant Chinatown neighborhood. The arena, which celebrated its 20th anniversary last year, is undergoing $40 million in renovations that see the installation of new seats, an enhanced sound system, and new concession areas, bars, and eateries.
Opened in 1997 as the MCI Center, the arena a decade later was home to the first indoor high-definition LED scoreboard, now de rigueur in arenas and stadiums everywhere. After a decade as the Verizon Center, the venue became Capital One Arena in 2017.
Washington Wizards 2018-19 Season
Despite star guard John Wall having missed half the 2017-18 season, the Wizards finished 43-39 — their fifth straight season at .500 or better — before falling to the regular season Eastern Conference champion Toronto Raptors in the first round of the Playoffs. So, coming off their fourth trip to the Playoffs in the past five seasons, the Wizards busily shuffled the deck as they prepared for the new campaign.
The biggest offseason acquisition, figuratively and literally, was 32-year-old center Dwight Howard. The 6-foot-11 center, an eight-time All-Star, gives the Wizards a strong frontcourt presence. Howard joins free-agent signee Jeff Green and draft pick Troy Brown Jr. as notable Wizards additions.
The Wizards' starting five of Wall, Howard, Bradley Beal, Otto Porter Jr., and Markieff Morris — and their talented bench — should keep them competitive on a nightly basis. Scott Brooks, whose teams have had a winning record in all but one of his nine seasons as a head coach, returns to helm the Wizards for a third year.
Washington Wizards History
Founded in 1961, the franchise has called Chicago, Baltimore, and Landover, Md., home, playing 10 seasons as the Baltimore Bullets, one as the Capital Bullets, and 23 as the Washington Bullets. In 1995, they changed their name to the Wizards.
After earning two Playoff appearances in their first five seasons in Baltimore, the team started a formidable run of postseason success starting in the 1968-69 season. Led by future Hall of Famers Earl Monroe and Wes Unseld (and later Elvin Hayes), the Bullets went to the Playoffs 12 consecutive seasons. The lost in the NBA Finals three times during that stretch — in 1971 to the Milwaukee Bucks, in 1975 to the Golden State Warriors, and in 1979 to the Seattle SuperSonics.
But etched in fans' memories is the 1978 championship the Dick Motta-coached Bullets won. Behind Playoff MVP Unseld, they defeated the SuperSonics on the road in Game 7 to capture the title.
The 1980s saw the Bullets make the Playoffs five straight times. They struggled in the 1990s and into the new millennium (despite the presence of Michael Jordan for two seasons) before four consecutive Playoff appearances starting in 2004-05 behind Gilbert Arenas, Antawn Jamison, and Caron Butler. They would return to the Playoffs in 2013-14.
