Lakers vs Wizards Preview

Los Angeles will travel to Washington on Saturday for a battle versus the Wizards. For the latest NBA betting trends and NBA free picks on Saturday’s game, check out our Wizards vs Lakers preview below.

Lakers, It’s Make Or Break Time

The Los Angeles Lakers season has been a complete letdown. This team is currently in ninth place in the Western Conference and are 29-40.

Everybody thought that they’d potentially play better after the All-Star break, but that has certainly not been the case as they’re 2-8 in their last 10 games. They’re going to be coming into this one after an embarrassing loss against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Los Angeles lost by 20 in this game, as LeBron James led the way with only 19 points.

On the season, the Lakers have the 24th rated net rating, the 25th rated offensive rating, and the 18th rated defensive rating.

Wizards, Similar To LA

The Washington Wizards are another team that’s had a disappointing season. Due to the Bradley Beal injury, they decided to trade away a few of their pieces during the trade deadline to try to retool around him when he does return next season.

Washington is going to be coming into this one losing five games in a row. It looks like their playoff hopes might be down the drain if this keeps up.

They will be coming into this one after losing to the Denver Nuggets 127-109 in their most recent game on Wednesday. But, Washington will be coming into this one on a back-to-back, as they take on the New York Knicks on Friday.

Free NBA Picks — Lakers vs Wizards

For this game, I think I’m going to go with the Los Angeles Lakers to win outright. I hate putting my money on the Los Angeles Lakers, but the Washington Wizards have been just as worse, if not worse than the Lakers have been during the past few weeks.

If Los Angeles is going to want to solidify a playoff spot down the stretch, they’re really going to have to start waking up. I don’t necessarily think that is going to happen, but I do think they win this one.
