Brooklyn Nets

The Brooklyn Nets have been in a real slump as they've lost eight of their last 10 games overall, but they will be eager to build some momentum after arrest a six-game slide with a 96-88 road win over the Raptors on Monday. Dennis Schroder led the team with 19 points and seven assists, Trendon Watford added 19 points off the bench while Mikal Bridges chipped in with 13 points and four assists. As a team, the Nets shot 45 percent from the field and nine of 39 from the 3-point line as they looked to be in trouble when they trailed after three quarters, before they clamped down defensively and restricted the Raptors to just 19 points in the fourth quarter to come away with the gritty win on the road.

Washington Wizards

Meanwhile, the Washington Wizards have been in decent shape as they've split their last 10 games overall and they will be gunning for a fourth straight win after sneaking past the Bulls in a 107-105 road win on Monday. Jordan Poole led the team with 23 points and five assists, Corey Kispert added 19 points with 12 rebounds while Marvin Bagley chipped in with 16 points on seven of eight shooting off the bench. As a team, the Wizards shot just 40 percent from the field and 14 of 49 from the 3-point line as they looked to be in trouble when they squandered an early 16-point lead, but they kept their cool and opened the fourth quarter on an 18-8 run to escape with the narrow road win.

Nets vs Wizards prediction

The Nets are still shorthanded as they are missing Dennis Smith Jr and they have Cam Thomas listed as questionable, while the Wizards are still missing Tyus Jones, Landry Shamet and Isaiah Livers. The Nets have been in terrible shape and they were on a six-game losing streak before their last win over the Raptors, while the Wizards have sprung to life with three wins on the trot. It's no surprise that the Nets are still slight favorites in this one, but I think there is some decent value with the Wizards as the home underdogs in this spot.
