It was a good game, they could have played better defense.

Washington Wizards History
Founded in 1961, the Washington Wizards franchise has called Chicago, Baltimore, Landover, Maryland. and Washington, D.C. home. Known earlier as the Packers, Zephyrs and Bullets, the franchise changed its name to the Wizards in 1997.
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 Hall of Famers Earl Monroe and Wes Unseld (and later Elvin Hayes), the Bullets went to the playoffs 12 seasons in a row, including four trips to the Finals and a championship in 1978. Behind an MVP performance from Unseld, Washington defeated Seattle in a decisive Game 7 to clinch the title.
Five consecutive postseason appearances highlighted the Bullets’ 80s. The franchise bounced back in the early 2000s, built around the core of Gilbert Arenas, Antawn Jamison and Caron Butler. That trio led Washington to four straight playoff appearances from 2005–2008. Since then, the Wizards have qualified for the postseason five times behind All-Stars John Wall and Bradley Beal, the latter of which became one of six players in NBA history to average 30-plus points per game in back-to-back seasons.

Game was fun to watch even though we lost. The seating was wonderful really no bad seat, prices was over the top for food and drinks, recommend eat before go, a few nice places near by that you could come early and eat near the venue and save some time standing in line and let them keep the fourteen dollar beers
My first time watching an NBA game. Terrific show, very amazing. Mavs are a good time, Wizards must play better
Right now it’s a waste of money. 90.-$ to watch the team lose. There is no defense, no strategy, it seams that none of the players has the gut to shoot the ball and then the numerous faults. No wonders the stadium yesterday was only filled with Nicks fans! Entertainment is also quite disappointing. I better invest my money somewhere else.
It was a great game! Great energy in the arena! It was my grandson’s birthday and he and his friends had an amazing time!! Thanks to the wonderful ushers and other staff for helping to make this a wonderful experience!
The stadium was clean and nice and many entrance so didn’t have to wait to get in. I wasn’t able to pay for anything in cash so that was inconvenient.
It was our first time, me and my wife, watching at the Capital One Arena and we had so much fun. Great crowd, friendly staffs. The seat is kinda small though. But great overall. We'll definitely come back again.
My girl dance at the wizards half time show and it. Was beautiful
This was the first basketball game I have ever attended and wow, what an event. Americans certainly know how to put in a show. Music, dancers, quizzes, mascot nonsense - it had it all. Oh, and a tiny bit of sport thrown in. Well done Wizards!
First time I watched an NBA match live and it really wasn't a nice experience. There was a big set of screen coming down from the ceiling and it was really overwhelming, I felt like I went there just to watch useless noisy tv advertisements. I went there because I wanted to see a basketball match, but the experience is totally ruined by the crazy amount of ads, talks, loud music coming from speakers and screens. I totally accept that this is kind of normal, but I really felt it was really too much, there wasn't any real focus on the match, which looked like just a non-considered non-relevant part of an ads show. Also, in the Capital One Arena there is a crazy policy that does not allow you to bring any bags, mainly because they want to save money and avoid paying more employees to handle the necessary extra work. I have read on internet that there are lockers available, but it is not clear where; bringing bags is clearly forbidden/discouraged. The venue is really beautiful and services/food shops are great, but they should focus more on basketball and fans, otherwise I would really stay away and prefer to watch events on TV.
