The Detroit Pistons (16-39) will travel to take on the Washington Wizards (21-33) in D.C, it will the Wizards first time at home in 5 games.

Washington has not had a great season, sitting at just 21-33 (12th in the East). Bradley Beal and Russell Westbrook continue to post impressive statlines but it has not resulted in many wins for the Wizards.
The Wizards enter on a high note after beating the Utah Jazz 125-121 in their last outing. In the process, the Washington Wizards snapped the Jazz’s impressive 24-game win streak at home.

Free Washington Wizards vs. Detroit Pistons NBA Prediction:
Neither of these teams are dangerous come playoff time and have both been sitting towards the bottom of the Eastern Conference all season. The Wizards have a chance to earn a play-in spot but will need to turn it on the final month. Detroit has no shot and are just hoping for a high draft selection at this point.
Washington has been playing great ball lately winning 4 of their last 5 games. Detroit has lost 3 straight but they’ve come to quality Western Conference teams and have been in close margins.
This will be the Wizards first home game in some time which I’m sure they’ve been looking forward to. I’m taking Washington to stay hot and get a win for their home crowd.
