It is still early enough in the season for things to really turn around for Washington but will they. This one is must .
Atlanta is bad and just looking for enough development to appease their fans and raise their hope for the future. Some nights it is pretty bleak.
The Wizards have won back to back games and have a great chance to run that to three or four with this trip to Atlanta and then one to Cleveland afterwards. That is how they will get back to being relevant.
Bradley Beal and John Wall still make up one of the best backcourts in the NBA. Neither is having an especially strong season but any given night they can explode, Beal had 27 at New York in their last game.
Dwight Howard is out til February but they have not been able to rely on him much of the season anyway. They are playing smaller than normal with no more Gortat. Maybe they have underestimated the value of that loss.
Otto Porter is one of the most confounding players in the NBA. He seems kind of of lost out there after showing improvement over a couple of seasons. Hard to imagine he was the third pick in his draft class.
Washington needs and should get this win. Otherwise things are going to get a lot noisier than they are right now.
Trae Young might wind up being a very good player but he is not the second coming. I am not sure it is a skill to hoist up shots without much concern for how often they go in…and they are not going in – 37% overall and 24% on three point attempts..
John Collins missed a chunk of time but is much more the foundational piece to me. He has good size and mobility, scores well and can rebound. Given that he makes his free throws and has good form improvement from deep can be expected.
Atlanta is hoping that these two and some other young players can be the future. It seems like every night they are just sorting through guys and seeing what sticks as opposed to having a plan for their development. That includes Young, where is the steady hand to guide him.

Free Washington Wizards vs. Atlanta Hawks NBA Prediction:
This is a good spot for Washington to get a victory but the way they play you don’t want to give them too much.
Although I kind of feel like if they are going to lose they are just as likely to win by 20 and cover any number.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: No line currently posted.
Look for Washington -6 on the road and to win by double that. It is a nice spot for the Wizards here.
