The Los Angeles Lakers will be looking to pick up a big road W this Wednesday, as they take on a Washington Wizards team who have been no pushovers here in that latter half of 2021.
Los Angeles Lakers
The Lakers have a very long injury list right now, but they are finally starting to get healthier, as they have welcomed back one half of their dynamic duo back in Anthony Davis who is now healthy enough to play.
LeBron James will not be joining the team any time soon though, as he is still dealing with a serious ankle injury that will likely keep him out until right before the playoffs begin barring any setbacks.
Andre Drummond has also started to find his feet with the LA Lakers, as he was able to pick up a double double in under 30 minutes on the floor in that last victory over the Orlando Magic and if he can get back to his Detroit Pistons days the Lakers will be near impossible to beat.
No pushovers is now putting it lightly, as the Washington Wizards just had their 8 game winning streak snapped and it really is a shame, as that could have been their run to the playoffs had they not been so bad earlier in the year.
Russell Westbrook has been a big reason for the run, as he is putting up huge numbers and he now has season averages of 21.8 in terms of points and 11 boards and assists and he is the type of guy to turn it on against a team like the Lakers even if LeBron is not out there.
Another big reason for the Wizards current position is the frankly ridiculous season Bradley Beal has had averaging 31.4 points per game and he is the reason why the Wizards can beat anybody because if he gets in the zone he just does not miss.

Free Los Angeles Lakers vs. Washington Wizards NBA Prediction:
The Washington Wizards are getting three points at home here against the hobbled Lakers and I think this is a great spot to take a home underdog. The Wizards will bring way more intensity to this game especially coming off of a loss and I can see them winning this one straight up.
The Wizards winning all of those games was no fluke, and it is not like the Lakers are really ready to fire on all cylinders, as they are not yet ready to push guys like Anthony Davis to the limit in order to beat a team like Washington.
