Staff Prediction

The Wizards come into this matchup having won their last 3 games. Kyle Kuzma was Washington's leading scorer in their win over the Mavericks on Tuesday night. The Rockets are currently last in the Western Conference standings and have lost 13 of their last 14 games. Jalen Green is coming off a career high 42-point performance in Houston's win over the Timberwolves last time out. The Wizards have been playing decently as of late and with where the Rockets are as a team right now, I expect the Wizards to take care of business and win this one and cover the 3.5 points.

Porzingis questionable for this game and I don't think he plays. The are the worst team in the NBA, and they have no problems holding that title, considering they are in a blatant rebuild in order to get the top pick in next year’s draft. I think Hachimura will have similar success and will get a ton of run since Porzingis is likely to sit this game.
