Who’s Playing

Washington @ Memphis

Current Records: Washington 23-25; Memphis 34-17

What to Know

The Washington Wizards have enjoyed the comforts of home their last eight games, but now they must head out on the road. They will take on the Memphis Grizzlies at 8 p.m. ET this past Saturday at FedExForum after having had a few days off. Memphis should still be riding high after a victory, while the Wizards will be looking to right the ship.

Washington was just a bucket short of a win last week and fell 116-115 to the Los Angeles Clippers. Washington was up 66-36 at the end of the half but somehow couldn’t manage to seal the deal. Point guard Spencer Dinwiddie wasn’t much of a difference maker for Washington; Dinwiddie finished with only five points on 2-for-10 shooting in his 33 minutes on the court.

Meanwhile, the Grizz beat the Utah Jazz 119-109 this past Friday. Memphis’ point guard Ja Morant did his thing and dropped a triple-double on 30 points, ten assists, and ten boards. Morant’s night made it five games in a row in which he has scored at least 30 points.

The Wizards are expected to lose this next one by 5.5. They have failed bettors playing the spread in their past four games, so buyers beware.

Everything went Washington’s way against the Grizz in the teams’ previous meeting last November as they made off with a 115-87 victory. The rematch might be a little tougher for Washington since the team won’t have home-court advantage. We’ll see if the change in venue makes a difference.
