Washington Wizards's Latest Performance :
The Wizards were able to come up on top in a tight contest against the Blazers. Bradley Beal came up clutch in regulation both offensively and defensively. He hit the three ball to tie the game and blocked Lillard from getting a potential game-winning layup. He finished the game with 25 points hitting five threes on the game. John Wall banked in a jumper to give the Wizards a 125-121 lead but bricked a pair of free throws shortly after. Luckily, he was bailed out by a clutch Otto Porter Jr. block. Porter finished the game with 16 points. Markieff Morris went off offensively for the Wizards in this game as he had 28 points, nine rebounds. Playing against the Warriors would require the same intensity from the players if they want to give themselves a chance of beating them.
Golden State Warriors's Latest Performance :
A day after losing to the Nuggets the Warriors came out firing against the Suns, they were in attack mode from the very beginning the young Suns team stood no chance after the Warriors executed fast break after fast breaks. Curry had another great game for the Dubs as he hit 11-for-18 from the floor with another six 3-pointers for 29 points. He will now face a real challenge as he will go up against John Wall. Kevin Durant added 22 points, four boards, three assists, a steal, and two 3-pointers in the win. The Warriors will need Klay Thompson defense in the Wizards game as he will try to contain the Wizards backcourt off the switches. He is still trying to find his shot as he struggled once again hitting only one three but ended the game with 16 points in an easy win over the Suns.

Against The Spread Selection: Golden State Warriors
My reason for the pick :
The Warriors should edge out a win over the Wizards in this game. Although Curry’s points will drop this game don’t forget the Warriors still have three more all-star on the team. Kevin Durant is expected to have a big game against the Wizards as he will get to his spots on the floor. With all the attention on Curry, this will open up an opportunity for Klay Thompson to get wide open looks at the baskets. For the Wizards both Beal and Wall will have a great game but no one on the Wizards will have an answer for Durant in this game.
