The Golden State Warriors travel to the Capital One Arena to battle the Washington Wizards on Tuesday night. Here’s a Warriors vs Wizards Prediction.

Golden State Warriors

The Golden State Warriors have been in fine form as they've won eight of their last 10 games overall, but they will be looking to bounce back in this one after getting run over by the Nuggets in a 119-103 loss on Sunday. Klay Thompson led the team with 23 points on seven of 15 shooting off the bench, Stephen Curry added 20 points while Jonathan Kuminga chipped in with 19 points. As a team, the Warriors shot just 43 percent from the field and 11 of 34 from the 3-point line as they exploded for 36 points in the first quarter to take an early 16-point lead, only to get completely outplayed the rest of the way to lose big in the end. Thompson was the only contributor off the bench in this one while Curry was simply off as he made just one of 10 from the 3-point line. The Warriors will take on the Knicks after this one.

Washington Wizards

Meanwhile, the Washington Wizards have been in a major slump as they've lost 17 of their last 19 games overall and they will be hoping to put an end to an ugly 11-game losing streak after beating the Cavaliers in a 114-105 loss on Sunday. Jordan Poole led the team with 31 points and five assists off the bench, Kyle Kuzma added 27 points with seven rebounds and five assists while Landry Shamet chipped in with 15 points. As a team, the Wizards shot 44 percent from the field and 12 of 40 from the 3-point line which was good enough to keep them in the contest, until the third quarter where they allowed the Cavaliers to go on a pivotal 17-5 run and pull away from them.

Warriors vs Wizards Prediction

The Warriors are coming into this game with the same squad, while the Wizards are keeping eyes on Landry Shamet, Deni Avdija and Corey Kispert who are all questionable at the moment. The Warriors were playing some of their best basketball of the season before they got trounced by the Nuggets in their last outing, while the Wizards have continued their downward spiral towards the offseason with their 11th straight defeat. The line seems hefty for this one, but the Warriors really should have little trouble making mince meat of the Wizards' defense to get the big win and cover on the road.
