Almost 40 years ago, the Spurs and Washington Bullets clashed in a dramatic seven-game series with a trip to the NBA Finals on the line. Led by Hall-of-Famer Wes Unseld, the defending champs from the nation’s capital clawed out of a 3-1 hole in the Eastern Conference Finals to take the series, only to fall to the Seattle Supersonics in five games. Things have pretty much gone downhill for D.C.’s professional basketball team ever since. After losing five-time All-Star John Wall for the season to bone spurs in his left heel, Washington remains on the periphery of the playoff hunt. With Wall on the mend, the Wizards have leaned heavily on shooting guard Bradley Beal who presents a formidable challenge for DeMar DeRozan. A duel between these two could quickly turn into a Sunday night shootout.
