The Washington Wizards are two games behind the Chicago Bulls for the final play-in berth in the Eastern Conference, sitting in 11th place. To save their season, they will need a few scores desperately. They recently had a critical four-game losing streak, but they have recovered well by winning two of their last three games. They’ll try to go 3-1 in the season series as they keep up their postseason push.
Some of their recent scoring problems can be attributed in large part to the absence of Bradley Beal. With Kyle Kuzma also sidelined and Daniel Gafford listed as ‘questionable’, the Wizards will have to rely on the play of Kristaps Porzingis to carry them in this one. When they easily defeated the Celtics by 19 points in their most recent contest, he shone.
The Wizards will be able to win this game at home if they can play strong defense like they did in their previous victory. With a small margin, the undermanned Wizards may struggle to defeat the Magic, given that they have a poor record of covering at home (16-19 ATS).
