The Wizards completed a two-game season sweep over the Phoenix Suns Wednesday night with a 88-79 win at US Airways Center, the second victory over Phoenix in five days.
The Wizards have shown flashes of a playoff contender throughout the season with wins over some of the NBA's best teams.
They have a point guard who can get into the paint for easy buckets and create open shots for his teammates.
They have great spot up shooters who can knock down the open three-pointer and spread the floor.
They also have a great defensive scheme with players who can stay in front of their men in one-on-one situations.
Because of these things, Washington has the potential of grabbing one of the top eight spots in the eastern conference next season, but there are a few things missing from this team that separates them from the real contenders.
