Wizards Control Destiny

The Wizards have complete control of their own playoff destiny. This weekend they will control their own ability to make the playoffs. Last weekend the Wizards could have made it into the playoffs, but they would have needed help to make it last week. This week, a win, and the Wizards are into the playoffs for the first time in 3 years, since the Wizards made MLS Cup 2004. There are also two other scenarios that will put the Wizards in the playoffs.

The first involves the Wizards tying New York. If that happens, then the Wizards need both LA and Colorado to fail to win. If that happens, then the Wizards are in. The other, is if the Wizards happen to lose. If the Wizards lose, they need CO to not win, and LA to lose this weekend. That would put the maximum points those teams could get, at 36, one point behind the Wizards current total of 37 points.

With two games remaining, the Wizards remain in a good spot to end their playoff drought.
