Looking to grab on some early lines today to continue the decent run on the NBA picks we are having now.
WAS Wizards -4 to beat BKN Nets @ 1.80 (Pinnacle) – 2.5 points
The Washington Wizards just suffered a horrible 22 point defeat to the Brooklyn Nets last night; and as soon they conceded their lead at Half time and then loss confirmed in the 3rd quarter; they had been planning with tonight in mind to take revenge as many of their starters were rested.
A lot of focus tonight will be on Wall, Beal and Pierce who all had sub-par performances last night; but the fact that they played less than 30 minutes compared to the Nets starters; should stand them in good stead being fresher for this game. Wizards primarily lost the game by conceding 19 turnovers last night; and that will be key in the mind of coach Whittman has he tries to get the team focussed for tonight. They also shot horribly form 3-point territory netting down 4 3-balls with a shooting percentage of 23.5% which shows you how much they spoilt some good possession.
The Nets have been in disarray all campaign with all the chopping and changing of the starting five; and that has been a result of their poor performances for a 17-23 campaign including a 8-13 home record. They have not relied on one scorer to help them dominate games, much like many other teams. Jack and Lopez stood out for them, and both have been subject to trade talks between the Thunder and Hornets; but still managed to net 26 points a piece to showcase to future employers on their performances. The Nets out-rebounded and out-stole the Wizards, something that you don’t usually come to expect from the Wizards usually.
I expect the Wizards to get back to their regular form, and scratch off last night to an off-night.
