What's up next?

The Washington Wizards improved to 3-0 for their preseason with wins over New York and Cleveland among their victories. Washington looks like they should be among the top three teams in the Eastern Conference this coming season, but will they be able to contend with Boston and Cleveland's full rosters in the regular season or playoffs?

They'll participate in another exhibition matchup this coming Wednesday night at 7:30 p.m. Eastern Time when they visit the Miami Heat.

For the Cleveland Cavaliers, they've yet to win a preseason game and are 0-3. However, these games won't make any difference when it comes to their goal of returning to the NBA Finals this season.

They'll take on the Chicago Bulls this coming Tuesday at 8 p.m. Eastern Time with ESPN providing national television coverage. It wouldn't be surprising if the Cavs continue to rest their key personnel to preserve them for the upcoming regular season.
