The Wizards revitalized their season with an 11-8 surge entering the All-Star break. Now they hope the recharging four-day hiatus helps keep the wins flowing.
Randy Wittman and the players returned for a "spirited" practice session Monday night in preparation for Tuesday's home tilt and the first meeting this season against the Toronto Raptors. Coverage begins at 6:30 p.m. on Comcast SportsNet.
"It was good. Energized, guys seemed like caged animals so they had a spirited practice today," Wittman said. "I think they were excited to get back, and I think taking four days to get away from it and relax and rest up was good, too."
Washington (15-36) last played on Wednesday in Detroit. From there the players headed to various locales including Houston where Bradley Beal participated in the All-Star weekend festivities.
"It was great. It was a blessing and an honor and I’m definitely going to remember it forever," the 19-year old said after scoring 12 points in Friday's Rising Stars Challenge.
