The Sacramento Kings really did not look good last time out against the Charlotte Hornets and they certainly will be looking for better when they head to the nation’s capital to take on the Washington Wizards in D.C.
De’Aaron Fox was excellent in that loss against the Hornets putting up 29 points on 11 for 22 shooting and he will be in an outstanding position to put up better numbers then that going up against one of the worst defenses in the NBA.Buddy Hield also showed up in a big way hitting critical 3’s in that game going for 23 points on 5 of 11 shooting from beyond the arc.
The main reason the Kings lost that game was poor 3 point shooting from the rest of the team, as only 4 of the 3 point shots were made outside of the ones Hield scored.
The Kings defensive struggles have been well documented and it’s not like this team is playing incredible defense yet, but they were able to shut down Lamelo Ball nearly completely in that last game which is at least a positive they can take away from that loss.
The Kings should be prepared to need an offensive explosion here, though, as the Kings defense is pretty close to the bottom in the NBA and the Washington Wizards are big fans of getting into high-tempo shootouts.
The Wizards come into this matchup off the back of 4 straight losses and although they have been playing against a tough strength of schedule they nonetheless are getting blown-out on a nightly basis with the Bucks only being threatened for short periods in the last two game series.
Bradley Beal continued on with his frankly ridiculous season scoring 37 points in that last game against the Bucks which only helped to increase his points per game average which now sit at 32.3 points.
Westbrook has also made solid contributions this year averaging over 21 PPG and 10.1 assists per game, but if the Wizards are going to be able to beat the Kings in a shootout, it is likely to come down to how well Beal can shoot.
The Wizzards are getting Davis Bertans back now, though, and he is the type of guy who can get hot from 3 to make an important contribution here, although it remains to be seen how many minutes he will get on the floor in a game like this.

Free Sacramento Kings vs. Washington Wizards NBA Prediction:
This total is pretty huge at 245.5, but I can see this going well over that with that number seemingly not all that crazy for any game Sacramento or the Wizards are involved in. Now that we have two of the league’s worst defenses going at it on Wednesday, it would not surprise me if this sails over this total especially if one of these teams can get really hot from 3 point range.
