WIZARDS at JAZZ PLAYERS TO WATCH
Bradley Beal, G, Wizards (30.1 ppg, 4.4 rpg, 6.0 apg): During a 16-game streak with 25 or more points, Beal has averaged 36.3 points, and he's now second in the NBA in scoring.
Rui Hachimura, F, Wizards (13. 9 ppg, 5.9 rpg, 1.6 apg): Hachimura continues to impress in his rookie season, and he'll likely draw the defensive assignment on Bojan Bogdonavic and will need to keep him from getting open looks.
Donovan Mitchell, SG, Jazz (24.7 ppg, 4.3 rpg, 4.3 apg): Mitchell is one of the league's emerging stars and continues to elevate his game as a scorer. He just made his first All-Star Game, and is Utah's top scorer.
