Wednesday night, Rashard Lewis returns to Amway Center to play against the Orlando Magic for the first time since they traded him to the Washington Wizards in December 2010. Whether his return will be a triumphant one has yet to be seen, obviously, but the Wizards remain the league's only winless team.
Washington's offense is the culprit, as it's yet to score more than 92 points in any game this season. Shooting 38.9 percent from the field will do that to a team, especially when hardly any of those shots are three-pointers.
The Wizards should provide a tune-up of sorts for Orlando, which hosts the Chicago Bulls on Friday. Chicago will be the best team the Magic have faced since opening night against the Oklahoma City Thunder, so they need to improve following a lackluster effort in their last two games.
