The Washington Wizards enter this contest having dropped their last game to the Los Angeles Clippers, 113-112. Before that, however, they’d won three of their last four.
The Brooklyn Nets enter this contest in the same situation. Although they dropped their last game to the Miami Heat, 101-89, they had won three of their last four prior to that loss.
Note that John Wall will be sidelined once again in this contest, while Jahlil Okafor, whom the Nets recently acquired from the Philadelphia 76ers, is expected to make his Brooklyn debut.
At this point in the season, the Wizards are scoring 106.4 points per contest. That number is good enough for 13th in the NBA.
On defense, Washington is allowing 104 points per night. That number is good enough for 14th in the league.
Against Brooklyn, the key is to control the pace. At this juncture, Brooklyn is No. 3 in the Association in terms of pace.
Getting the Nets to play a slog of a game is easier said than done, but the Wizards are just 16th in that category, so it’s doable if the offense can be disciplined.
At this point in the season, the Nets are averaging 108.6 points per night. That number sounds impressive, as it’s good enough for sixth-best in the league, but that has far more to do with the team’s pace than any sort of offensive competency.
On the year, Brooklyn is just 19th in offensive efficiency, and while that is good enough to keep it out of the bottom 10, it’s hardly a testament to their overall aptitude on that end of the floor.
Defensively, the Nets 111.1 points per game. That number puts them at 29th in the league.
In terms of defensive efficiency, the Nets aren’t actually as bad as that raw stat indicates. Their points per 100 possessions allowed are 106.8, which while still not great, puts them at 20th.

Free Washington Wizards vs. Brooklyn Nets NBA Prediction:
The Nets have been decent against the spread lately, but that has more to do with how oddsmakers view them and less about how good they’ve actually been.
In this one, the three-point spread is just too slim for us to give Brooklyn the edge.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Wizards -3
The Wizards should win this game both straight up and against the spread. Don’t be surprised if the road team takes this one by double digits.
