Nets vs Wizards
It will be a back-to-back meeting between these teams as they played last night in Washington. That actually has a huge importance tonight as the Wizards got humiliated yesterday and revenge factor is something that always has an importance in this league. It is safe to say the Wizards played one of their worst games this season and as their coach perfectly described it – they lacked focus, energy and urgency and they didn`t respect their opponent. The game set a season low in scoring and the biggest margin of defeat at home for the Wizards. Good teams never make these mistakes 2 games in a row and the Wizards see themselves as a top team in the Eastern Conference.
It is easy to think that last night the score was 102-80 for the Nets and it would take a massive 27-point swing for the Wizards to cover tonight, but this is exactly what we expect. Throw this game out of the window for a moment and the Nets are an awful team that has been struggling against good teams. In fact they are only 3-16 against the teams with a winning record this season. Before yesterday they had lost 7 games in a row and are just hanging around without having real identity. Their struggles are actually easy to explain as many of their key players (Williams, Lopez, Johnson) are on offer and tradeable pieces, which is never a good thing for a team chemistry. Even a good win is unlikely to change things emotionally and the Nets will keep struggling.
Back-to-back game will hurt the Nets old legs more. They also won`t have Deron Williams and although it didn`t show last night it is likely to play a bigger part in a b2b situation. The Wizards will bounce back tonight and we expect them to release they fury and fix the mistakes from yesterday. Take the Wizards to cover -4.5 points
