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 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 on Tuesday 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. One thing holding Washington back was the mediocre play of point guard Spencer Dinwiddie, who did not have his best game: he finished with only five points on 2-for-10 shooting in his 33 minutes on the court.

Meanwhile, the Grizz was able to grind out a solid victory over the Utah Jazz on Friday, winning 119-109. It was another big night for Memphis’ point guard Ja Morant, who dropped a triple-double on 30 points, ten dimes, and ten rebounds. The contest made it Morant’s fifth in a row with at least 30 points.

The Wizards are expected to lose this next one by 5.5. Those sticking with them against the spread have guts, to put it politely, as the team has let down bettors in their past four games.

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