What to Know
The Washington Wizards are on the road again Friday and play against the Los Angeles Lakers at 10:30 p.m. ET March 11 at Crypto.com Arena. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they’ll have plenty of motivation to get the ‘W.’
The Wizards were within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap on Wednesday as they fell 115-109 to the Los Angeles Clippers. Power forward Kristaps Porzingis (19 points), power forward Rui Hachimura (18 points), and power forward Kyle Kuzma (17 points) were the top scorers for Washington.
Meanwhile, Los Angeles fought the good fight in their overtime game against the Houston Rockets on Wednesday but wound up with a less-than-desirable result, falling 139-130. A silver lining for the Lakers was the play of point guard Russell Westbrook, who had 30 points and six assists along with eight boards.
Washington is expected to lose this next one by 4. The smart bettors have been the ones to keep their money on Washington’s opponents whenever they hit the road.
Washington is now 29-35 while Los Angeles sits at 28-37. Washington is 17-17 after losses this year, Los Angeles 18-18.
