After winning a track meet against Denver, the Wizards hope to continue success against winning teams as they host James Harden and the Rockets. Since Jan. 7, the Wizards are 10-4 against teams with winning records and 2-5 against teams with losing records.

The Rockets (31-26) have won their first two games since the all-star break, claiming victories over Oklahoma City and Brooklyn. Houston defeated the Wizards, 99-93, on Dec. 12 as Harden scored a game-high 31 points – with 17 coming in the first quarter to match Washington, which had an opportunity to acquire him last summer. Newly acquired players Thomas Robinson, Francisco Garcia and Tyler Honeycutt remain inactive.

Jason Collins arrived on Saturday and will be available for his season debut with the Wizards.
