The Washington Wizards are looking to end a four -game losing streak as they embark on a four-game road trip, beginning with a matchup versus the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday night. And despite losing their last three road outings, Washington was able to pick up an 18-point win at home in December of 2018 thanks to 40 points from injured John Wall along with 25 points from Bradley Beal.
Los Angeles Lakers
The Lakers may have been eliminated from the playoffs, yet were able to halt a five-game losing skid in their last outing versus the surging Sacramento Kings. And while Lebron James led the team with 28 points, 11 rebounds, along with 11 assists in the win, Kyle Kuzma should also get props for a huge third quarter.
Kuzma scored 21 of his 29 points during this time as the Lakers were able to erase a one-point halftime deficit to go up by 10 points entering the final period. The Lakers shot 46% as a team on the night while holding the Kings to just 37% in the win.
Reggie Bullock (foot), Mike Muscala (ankle), along with Josh Hart (knee) are questionable for this matchup for Los Angeles. However, JaVale McGee has stepped up his performances lately as he pumped in 17 points along with 14 rebounds after a 33 point night versus the Brooklyn Nets in their prior outing.
The Wizards are averaging a tad under 115 points per game on 47% shooting on the year. However, with a slew of injuries, including Wall being lost with an achilles injury, Washington has had a rough go of it lately. In fact, they are averaging just 107 points per game during their current losing skid.
The Wizards shot 43% in their last outing versus the Miami Heat at home as Jeff Green led with 25 points along with 6 rebounds. Thomas Bryant along with Bobby Portis each had double-doubles with 14/11 in addition to 17/11. Finally, Bradley Beal went 6-14 from the floor in ending with 16 points in the five point loss.
The defense allowed 50% shooting to the Heat in the contest while Miami had 10 blocks as well. Bam Adebayo led the team with four blocks in the game as he ended with 16 points along with 11 rebounds.
The playoffs are a long-shot for the Wizards as they have simply not played with any type of consistency. Also, with Dwight Howard out until next month with a back injury while Trevor Ariza is also questionable with a groin injury for this matchup.

Free Washington Wizards vs. Los Angeles Lakers NBA Prediction:
Washington has been terrible both at home and on the road this season. As stated, they have dropped their last three road outings as I certainly see these trends continuing versus the struggling Lakers on Tuesday night. And while Los Angeles will be short-handed once again, look for them to pick up a 115-105 victory over an equally short-handed Wizards squad at home in this instance.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Lakers -1.5
The Lakers will look to pick up some momentum as their season comes to a close. A win versus a Wizards team will be just what the doctor ordered as James and Kuzma will lead their team to victory.
