The Washington Wizards need a win after splitting their last four games. On the season, the Wizards are averaging 98.7 points on 46.7 percent shooting and are allowing 97.3 points on 43.7 percent shooting. John Wall is averaging 17.4 points and 10 assists while Bradley Beal is averaging 14.8 points and 3.8 rebounds. Paul Pierce is shooting 45.5 percent form the field and Marcin Gortat is grabbing 8.6 rebounds. The Washington Wizards are coming off a tough Sunday loss against the Kings in which they scored just 86 points. The road has caused issues for the Wizards all season, especially as of late considering that’s where their last six losses have come. Kris Humphries is questionable with a groin injury.

The Golden State Warriors look to build on their five-game winning streak. On the season, the Warriors are averaging 109.7 points on 47.8 percent shooting and are allowing 99.3 points on 42.5 percent shooting. Stephen Curry is averaging 23.3 points and 7.9 assists while Draymond Green is averaging 11.8 points and 8.1 rebounds. Marreese Speights is grabbing 4.5 rebounds and Harrison Barnes is shooting 49.2 percent from the field. The Golden State Warriors are shooting 49.8 percent from the field in their last five games and have yet to lose a game when allowing less than 100 points. The Warriors also haven’t lost a home game since January 27th.
The Wizards are 3-12 ATS in their last 15 road games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Western Conference. The Warriors are 4-11-1 ATS in their last 16 vs. Eastern Conference and 38-16-2 ATS in their last 56 home games. The road team is 6-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings.
The Warriors continue to beat teams head in when playing in Golden State. Well, I like that to continue against a Wizards team that simply can't win on the road for whatever reason.
