If there is one word to describe the recent season of Wizards, that would be disappointing, as they failed to lie up to the expectations of them. They are currently in a losing streak, which they badly want to end for this match. This team’s struggles in the NBA is not just defensively, but also offensively. They do not do well from beyond the arc, only having a percentage of 34.5%. Consistency have also been their number one problem, which is why they failed to keep things going for them. Additionally, they have failed to take advantage of their chances in the free-throw line, which could have helped them a lot. They currently holds the 21st spot when it comes to offense with 111.6 points per game. In defense, they are the 16th, giving up 113.7 points per game,

Kristaps Porzingis continuously lead the Wizards as he is averaging 22.4 points per game, but still not enough to do wonders for the Wizards. Moreover, they will also be without Rui Hachimura, and Delon Wright who are both nursing their injuries.
