V.S. NEW JERSEY NETS
* WHEN: Tonight, 7:30 p.m.
* WHERE: Capital Centre.
* TV/RADIO: Home Team Sports; WTOP-AM 1500.
* OUTLOOK: There are undoubtably thousands in the area wondering why anyone should care about this game. After all, the Bullets (30-49) and the Nets (24-55) are both on a slow boat to nowhere, getting set to watch the NBA playoffs next week from the comforts of their living rooms.
But, believe it or not, this game has its merits. For example, the Bullets, who may have dealt Milwaukee a crushing blow in its hopes to catch Detroit for third in the Eastern Conference Tuesday, hold the NBA's second longest current win streak. Granted, it's only three games, but with the way things have gone for the Bullets this year, one must be grateful for little things.
Bernard King (back) and Charles Jones (groin) will likely miss tonight's game.
