what to know

The Wizards will be in front of their home fans on Sunday, but a look at the spread shows they may need home-court advantage. After playing just yesterday, they will be right back into it and host the Denver Nuggets on January 21st at 6:00 PM ET at Capital One Arena. The Wizards are heading into the game on a three-game losing streak.

Oddsmakers set the bar high, but the Wizards and Spurs did not disappoint and crossed the 242-point over/under on Saturday. Washington took a 131-127 hit in the column in a loss to San Antonio. The Wizards did not perform up to their potential and found themselves falling short of the advantage the oddsmakers thought they had coming into the game.

Even though they lost, the Wizards were breaking the offensive glass and finished the game with 14 offensive rebounds. This is by far the most offensive rebounding he has had all season.

Meanwhile, it was closer, but Denver beat Boston 102-100 on Friday. The Nuggets trailed 58-46 with 3:30 left in the second quarter but still came back for an easy two-point win.

The Nuggets relied on the efforts of Jamal Murray, who scored 35 points with eight rebounds and five assists, and Nikola Jokic, who nearly dropped a triple-double with 34 points, 12 rebounds and nine assists. Jokic has been hot lately, playing five times and posting ten or more rebounds.

Washington has had a rocky road recently, as they have lost nine of their last ten games, making a notable dent in their 7-34 record this season. As for Denver, their win improved their record to 29–14.

Some high-performance offense is likely to be on the agenda as both teams are some of the highest-scoring teams in the league. The Wizards have had no problem scoring this season, averaging 115.7 points per game. However, it’s not like the Nuggets struggle in that department as they are averaging 116 points per game. With both teams able to score points with such ease, the only question is who can take the score higher.

In their last match in March 2023, the Wizards fell far behind the Nuggets, losing 118-104. A big factor in that loss was an impressive performance from Jokic, who dropped a double-double of 31 points and 12 rebounds. Now that the magicians know how much damage he can cause, will they be able to stop him this time? There’s only one way to find out.
