Washingon is back in action. They won their last game before their COVID-19 hiatus but is was back to losing when they returned to the court on Saturday.
With the offseason swap of Russell Westbrook for John Wall these teams are linked. The Harden trade was of greater impact on the Rockets though.
Houston would be intriguing if they could get their roster healthy for a stretch.
The Wizards have their own health problems, it just isn’t at the star level.
Speaking of stars Bradley Beal is having his best season yet. Beal is averaging 35ppg in just 35mpg. He is probably sacrificing a little efficiency but it is hard to argue with the results.
Russell Westbrook is filling up the stat sheet with regularity, averaging 18ppg, 10apg and 9rpg. His shooting has been terrible though so it is not adding up to much team success.
The Wizards are third in the NBA in scoring and last in defense. The scoring piece could be a little light without Davis Bertans and Rui Hachimura in the lineup.
Those two can score points and give up just as much. Their replacements might be better on defense but I am not sure they can help them win.
Alex Len was just picked up after being released by Toronto. He is their big off the bench and might provide a little scoring too. Their depth is so thin right now.
Washington is sort of interesting when healthy. They are not quite all the way back just yet.
John Wall is back but he was a non-factor in the easy win the Rockets had against Dallas on Saturday
Instead, it was turn back the clock performances from Eric Gordon and Demarcus Cousins that led the way. The duo scored 61 points and Cousins grabbed 17 rebounds too.
If you combine that production with a sold Wall and Christian Wood and Victor Oladipo and maybe you have something. You just have to wonder if we ever see it.
Wood and Oladipo are unlikely to suit up in this one. Against the Rockets they can still probably win though. They just have to be a little more moderate in pacing.

Free Washington Wizards vs. Houston Rockets NBA Prediction:
It seems like the best way to beat the Wizards is to let anyone not named Beal shoot it as much as possible. There are just not enough efficient scorers around him right now to balance out that terrible defense.
I like the potential of this Houston team for the season. They could be really good with a nice veteran group. I like them a little less so right now but still more than Washington.

This one could get up there in points but eventually, Washington runs out of bullets
