Pick, Prediction, & Preview:

Brooklyn Nets vs Washington Wizards

The Washington Wizards host the Brooklyn Nets in a Saturday night match-up at Capital One Arena of two Eastern Conference rivals. D’Angelo Russell and Bradley Beal will square off for the second time this season. The Nets took the first meeting 115-104 and are looking to double down during this visit. The Nets trail the Wizards by half a game in the 9th and 10th spots respectively.

Brooklyn Nets's Latest Performance :

The Brooklyn Nets, after losing Chris Lavert, have gone from looking to acquire talent to dealing their own. D’Angelo Russell and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson are both unrestricted free agents next season. Both of which might be their best bet to keep and build a roster around given they probably won’t land a big fish in free agency. Aside from the player drama, the Nets are 3-7 in their last ten and have lost 3 in a row.

Washington Wizards's Latest Performance :

The Washington Wizards are an underwhelming 8-12 to start the season and trade rumors surround this team daily. The core three of John Wall, Bradley Beal, and Otto Porter Jr. are the players they are trying to build around. As of late, they too aren’t off the trade block according to Wizard President Ernie Grunfeld. Everyone seems to be fair game. The team needs to make quite a few roster changes if they want to turn the program around and start winning games.
