The Washington Wizards will be feeling good about themselves coming into this Sunday’s matchup with the Brooklyn Nets, as they come off of a shock win over the 1st placed Utah Jazz in their last contest.
That last win came with a big cost, though, as Davis Bertans got hurt again and is now expected to be out for up to 3 weeks and Bertans is the type of sharpshooter the Wizards desperately could use in what is expected to be a shootout here against the Nets.
That last win over the Jazz had little to do with Bertans, though, as he only played 4 minutes with the majority of the heavy lifting being left up to the team’s back court of Westbrook and Beal with the two All-Stars combining for 78 points in the win.
The biggest worry for the Wizards here will be how they limit the Nets because the Wizards come into this game giving up 120.2 points per game which is good for 30th in the league and we can expect the Nets to go over that with their outstanding offense.
The Brooklyn Nets, despite being solid in Steve Nash’s inaugural season as a coach, will be coming into this game feeling the exact opposite of the Wizards, as they come off of a loss against the Orlando Magic who seemingly could not beat anyone up until that point. Those type of games can happen to the Nets, though, as their lack of defense can get them hurt against teams who maybe do not possess the same talent as the star studded Nets.
There really is no reason to freak out in Brooklyn however, as that game was likely just a fluke for the otherwise hot Nets who were 14-1 in their last 15 games prior to that loss to the Magic. Look for Kyrie Irving to have a big game here, as he loves these type of shootout games and I fully expect him to stay hot, as the point guard was able to put up over 40 points against the Magic in that loss.

Free Washington Wizards vs. Brooklyn Nets NBA Prediction:
Although 245 might seem like a real high total at first glance, it really is not all that high for these two teams, as both of them have the ability to put up a ton of points and neither one of them has a whole lot of interest in playing much defense.
There is also the nothing to lose factor here, as the Brooklyn Nets essentially have an excellent seed already locked up and the Wizards are pretty much just thinking about next year, so we could see plenty of turnovers and plenty of shots taken early in the shot clock.
