Who’s Playing

Washington @ Los Angeles

Current Records: Washington 11-19; Los Angeles 12-16

What to Know

The Washington Wizards might have tired legs after a matchup yesterday as they head on the road against the Los Angeles Lakers at 9:30 p.m. ET Dec. 18 at Arena. The Wizards will be seeking to avenge the 130-119 loss they suffered the last time these two teams played December 4th.

Washington came up short against the Los Angeles Clippers this past Saturday, falling 102-93. The top scorers for Washington were center Kristaps Porzingis (19 points) and power forward Kyle Kuzma (17 points).

Meanwhile, Los Angeles didn’t have too much trouble with the Denver Nuggets at home this past Friday as they won 126-108. It was another big night for the Lakers’ small forward LeBron James, who had 30 points in addition to nine boards. LBJ’s night made it three games in a row in which he has scored at least 30 points.

Washington is expected to lose this next one by 4.5. They have failed bettors playing the spread in their past five games, so buyers beware.

Los Angeles’ victory lifted them to 12-16 while Washington’s defeat dropped them down to 11-19. Allowing an average of 116.25 points per game, the Lakers haven’t exactly asserted themselves on the defensive end. We’ll see if they can patch up the holes in their defense before their upcoming contest.
