Nets, to extend winning streak vs struggling Wizards

The Brooklyn Nets is looking to extend their winning streak into three when they play the Washington Wizards, who is currently struggling in the NBA. Wizards‘ current performance is not looking good, as they already lost on their last six straight games. If they still drop this game, they can already see doors to the playoffs shutting down on them slowly. The Nets are from a 133-136 win against the Pacers. The Wizard on the other hand, are coming from a 114-107 loss against the Clippers, as they eye to bounce back here. This meeting will be on December 13, 2022, at 8:00 AM (GMT+8), where it is the Wizards hosting this match.

The Nets are now looking good in the league after slumping in their first games, as they seem to finally found the right rhythm for them. It seems like this team is finally headed to the right direction, after series of ups and downs from their previous seasons. Additionally, some of the key players who have not played in a while returns for this game. Their return though makes the Nets a more dangerous team. As for the Wizards, if they are looking to at least advance in the playoffs, they need to win their next matches. More losses for them could end all their hopes this season, which they surely do not want to happen. Additionally, they must also improve their game both offensively and defensively to go on winning ways.

The fact that this Nets squad is currently playing without a star during their winning streak makes them more scary for the other teams. They actually had a very slow start this season, winning only one of their first five games. Now, they are scorching hot in the league, winning seven of their last eight games. They are currently on their second day of their four-game road trip, which did starts well as they won over the Pacers. In fact, as they head into their second day of their road trip, they are looking to have their third straight victory, with the first was against the Hawks. They are at the 17th offensively, with 112.5 points per game, and 15th defensively, as they give up 113.0 points per game.

Although Cam Thomas had a career-high 33 points in this game, it is still unfortunate for the Nets that their stars are still doubtful in this match. Yes, all of their key players are all listed to be in a game-time decisions. Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, Ben Simmons, and Seth Curry are all doubtful for this game.

As the Wizards keeps dropping their game, they are hoping for one thing- to finally have Beal back for them. Actually, they have a strong start this season, winning 10 of their first 17 games. However, things might have a little turn as they have been miserable since then, losing nine of their last 10 games. That lone win was last November 28, when they had a victory against the Timberwolves. They fell short on their last game against the Clippers, giving them their sixth straight loss in the league. Coming into this game, they are hoping to end this kind of streak as this is not what they want. Offensively, they are the 22nd with 110.8 points per game, and 10th in defense as they give up 111.3 points per game.

Guys like Kyle Kuzma and Kristaps Porzingis are two of the players from the Wizards who are making things happen for them. As for Beal, Barton, and Morris, they could be game-time decisions as they are all coming from an injury.

Brooklyn Nets
Total Under: 116.5
