The Brooklyn Nets will head to Washington tonight to face the Wizards! Both teams made big blockbuster trades today. The Nets traded James Harden and Paul Millsap for Ben Simmons, Seth Curry, Andre Drummond and 2 1st round picks. The Wizards got Kristaps Porzingis and traded Spencer Dinwiddie and Davis Bertans to do so. However, both teams need to take out the talks about the trades since none of the traded for players can play tonight, and play basketball. The Nets have played basketball better for both games against the Wizards tonight, leading the series 2-0. But can the Wizards bounce back at Capital One Arena and win? Find out below!
My Prediction: Wizards win by around 8
Superman Sleeper: Corey Kispert will have a good game today. He will also outplay the Nets because of who they don’t have. The Nets acquired Seth Curry today but can’t play him until he passes the physical and whatever he has to do to officially play. Joe Harris is also out for Brooklyn. So, Corey Kispert can really out shoot Brooklyn. Kispert is coming off a 20 point performance and if he improves his 3pt shooting from last game like his expected to do with his growth of minutes (now a starter), he could really be a valuable piece. Kispert is the Superman Sleeper for tonight’s game!
Wizards: Beal (IR), Gafford (health and safety protocols)
Nets: Durant (Out), Harris (Out), Aldridge (Out), Claxton (Out)
