The Wizards have been playing well lately and this should just be a formality as the Nets are not very strong this season.

The Nets are not having a good season and a return to the playoffs seems unlikely.

Last year’s team went for it and came up woefully short and now they are left looking up at teams like Washington who are much better positioned for success in the short and long term.

This is an aging team that looks like it could be broken up at any moment.

They have lost their last seven games covering just once during that time. They may not sink to New York or Philly status but these guys are pretty bad.

Though he seems to be aging pretty fast the Nets will be without the services of Deron Williams for this one and into the future.

That puts Jarrett Jack in the lineup and even though I like him a lot he tends to get exposed if you use him too much.

Razor Ray's Picks

Without Williams in the lineup the scoring burden falls even harder on Joe Johnson, who is not having a very good regular season, for the second year in a row.


The Wizards are rolling right now. They just beat the Bulls for the second time in a week and I believe they have now won 5 straight at the United Center.

This is the first of a small break in their schedule as they play the Nets on back to back nights and then get Philadelphia at home.

They are playing well and the lineup is really clicking right now.

I wasn’t sure how the addition of Paul Pierce would be for this team but so far the early returns have been very good.

I love the Wizards’ backcourt but the more I see of them the more I am falling in love with Marcin Gortat – and it is not just because of his mohawk.

He is not the best center in the league but he can score, rebound and defend and gives the team some toughness.

He is very underrated and perfect compliment to the stars on the team – John Wall and Bradley Beal. This team can get even better with time.
