Pick, Prediction, & Preview:
Washington Wizards vs Sacramento Kings
The Kings will welcome the Wizards to Golden 1 Center as they are coming off a win against the Grizzlies in their previous game while the Wizards had no answer for the Warriors they will be looking to bounce back in this game. Game tips off at 10:00 PM ET.
Washington Wizards's Latest Performance :
The Wizards couldn’t do much in their last game as Curry exploded for 51 points and shot 11 threes as the Warriors ran the Wizards out of the gym. The Wizards were led by Bradley Beal with 23 and Kelly Oubre Jr. with 17 off the bench. It became a lopsided victory for the Warriors. The Wizards will have to forget that game as soon as possible and focus on the next game because it is still very early in the season. Despite the loss, there were still some positives the Wizards were running a small line up and they were able to keep up with the Warriors in the first half. Jeff Green also had a nice half at the center position with 10 points as the Wizards were able to drop 71 through the first two quarters. Markieff Morris had 14 points on 6-of-10 shooting with Howard still out the Wizards are relying on Morris to score a lot he will be going up against Marvin Bagley. Playing against the Kings, John Wall will get to redeem himself against Fox after a 13 points effort against the Warriors.
Sacramento Kings's Latest Performance :
The Kings are coming off an impressive victory over Memphis. Fox led the way with 21 points he was a pest defensively tonight while his speed and penetration confounded the Grizzlies’ defense. He wasn’t particularly efficient with 7-of-16 FGs and 7-of-12 FTs, but that’s part of the learning curve for the 20-year-old. Buddy Hield had 23 points he scored seven in the final period in helping the Kings pull away, Willie Cauley-Stein added 15 points and 10 rebounds, and Nemanja Bjelica had 11 points and 11 boards for the Kings. It was the first win of the season that points didn’t reach 100. The Kings scored 19 points in the opening quarter and shot just 36.8 percent – far below the team’s league-leading 52.7 percent entering the game. Iman Shumpert is expected to be out in this game because of a hip injury. The King’s young backcourt will have the opportunity to go up against Wall and Beal so it will be interesting to see how they perform after a victory against Memphis.

My reason for the pick :
I expect the Wizards to bounce back after being destroyed by the Warriors in their last game. Beal and Wall should have their ways against the Kings defense. This game should be a high pace game as the score should go well over 100. For the Kings it will be a great learning curve for them because the Wizards are a team that they could become in the future, the Kings got their pieces it is just a matter of time that the Kings will become contenders in the West.
