The Golden State Warriors’ season hasn’t tipped off how most thought it would. They have two losses in their first game games, and they’ve seen everything from close losses to big wins—not to mention a disastrous loss to the Memphis Grizzlies in which both Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry were ejected.
That said, they’re still the Warriors. And they’re looking to continue getting things back on track Friday against the Washington Wizards, just two nights after they escaped in a close one against the Toronto Raptors.
The Wizards, despite being on the other side of the country 41 games out of the season, didn’t have to travel far for this contest. They’re coming off an overtime loss to Lonzo Ball and the Los Angeles Lakers, and they’re coming off a night’s rest to boot.
So far this season, John Wall has looked great. He’s even said that he’s in the best shape of his career, which is downright scary considering how good he’s been up to this point.
On the year, Wall is averaging 22.8 points per night while collecting a team-high 9.8 assists, but his shooting percentages are atrocious at just 37.3 percent from the field and 14.3 percent from the three-point line.
Against the Warriors, Wall needs to be more efficient. You can’t get away with a subpar performance against one of the greatest rosters ever assembled.
Luckily for the Wiz, even if Wall doesn’t blow anyone away with his efficiency, they have Bradley Beal averaging a team-high 24.5 points per game—but again, his percentages have been down, which means sheer points per game aren’t going to get it done unless at least one of them (probably both of them) put together an efficient game.
Golden State Warriors
Unlike the Wizards, the Warriors are the kings of efficiency.
So far this season, Stephen Curry is averaging 29.2 points per night on 46.5 percent shooting from the field and 36.5 percent from deep. Then there’s Kevin Durant, he’s posting 25 points per night on 51.1 percent from the field and 50 percent from long range.
Keep going down the roster and you have Klay Thompson. The lights-out shooter is scoring 21.2 points per contest while completing 51.9 percent of his field-goal attempts and 46.5 percent of his threes.
Believe it or not, Nick Young also falls into this category. He’s averaging 9.8 points a night while hitting at a 59.1 percent clip from the field and a 61.1 percent clip from deep.
Basically, you can’t stop the Warriors unless they stop themselves. Consider the fact that Draymond Green, who is not scoring double digits and is not hitting a high percentage of his shots, is the team’s most important player because of the way he creates for others and the way he defends all five positions.
The Warriors are trouble when they’re hitting their shots.

Free Washington Wizards vs. Golden State Warriors NBA Prediction:
This should be a high-scoring contest. Even if the Wizards stars aren’t able to put together an efficient contest, they’re going to have plenty of opportunities to put the ball in the bucket based off the sheer speed at which this game should be played.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: UNDER 230
The problem for the Wiz is that a barn-burner isn’t likely to end up in their favor.
Give this one to the Warriors by a decent amount.
