The San Antonio Spurs and the Washington Wizards collide at the Capital One Arena on Saturday night. Here’s a Spurs vs Wizards Prediction.

San Antonio Spurs

The San Antonio Spurs have been in a real slump as they've lost nine of their last 11 games overall and they will be hoping to avoid a fifth straight defeat afte getting beaten by the slumping Hornets in a 124-120 road defeat last night. Keldon Johnson led the team with 25 points on nine of 15 shooting off the bench, Devin Vassell added 17 points with seven assists while Zach Collins chipped in with 16 points. As a team, the Spurs shot 56 percent from the field and 15 of 32 from the 3-point line as they worked hard to claw their way back from a 12-point deficit in the third quarter, only to allow the Hornets to use a 10-0 run in the fourth quarter to steal the game in the end.

San Antonio Spurs Player Facts

  • Devin Vassell ranks T21st amongst qualified players for steals per game (1.3) this season.
  • Tre Jones ranks 32nd amongst qualified players for assists per game (5.3) this season.

Washington Wizards

Meanwhile, the Washington Wizards have been in a real slump as they've lost eight of their last nine games overall and they will be hoping to snap a two-game skid after falling just short to the Knicks in a 113-109 road defeat on Thursday. Jordan Poole led the team with 24 points, Marvin Bagley added 20 points with 11 rebounds and three blocks while Kyle Kuzma and Deni Avdija chipped in with 15 points each. As a team, the Wizards shot 45 percent from the field and 10 of 31 from the 3-point line as they wrestled with the Knicks in a close contest, but they just couldn't take the lead in the fourth quarter where they allowed 40 points.

Washington Wizards Player Facts

  • Tyus Jones ranks 1st amongst qualified players for assist:turnover ratio (6.9) this season.
  • Jordan Poole ranks 14th in the Eastern Conference amongst qualified players for FT% (86.7%) this season.

Spurs vs Wizards Prediction

The Spurs should have Victor Wembenyama back in the lineup after he was rested last night, while the Wizards are keeping an eye on Daniel Gafford who is questionable for this one. The Spurs have been ice-cold lately and their confidence took another gut shot after losing to the slumping Hornets who have been losing to everyone lately. You couldn't back either side with much confidence this season, but there is a little more to like about the Wizards who were more than competitive in their narrow loss to the Knicks on Thursday. This should be close, but I think the Wizards get the much needed win at home in this spot.
