97 - Combined number of wins for the Washington Capitals and Washington Wizards so far, with six games remaining for the Caps and seven for the Wizards before the end of the regular season.

That ties their highest combined win total, set last season (56 wins for the Caps, 41 for the Wiz) since the two teams arrived in the DC area... which was their highest since the 2014-15 season (90). Prior to that, the most the two had managed to cobble together was 89, a record set way back in 1985-86.
