Washington is 3-0 to start their young season, looking to take the next step after making it to the second round of the playoffs last year. PG John Wall is already playing like he’s ready to take the next step, leading the team with 24.3 PPG and 10 APG. Bradley Beal is right behind averaging 23.3 PPG and Otto Porter Jr. completes their big three with 18.3 PPG and 9 RPG.

Their last win was a 109-104 victory over the new look Nuggets. It was a tight affair from the get-go with the teams finishing each of the first three quarters within one point of each other. The Nuggets got a rare technical foul with 33 seconds left when their best player Nikola Jokic bumped Wizards coach Scott Brooks. Beal made the shot to extend the lead to three and they held on from there.

The Lakers hope they have a new star in the making with Lonzo Ball at the wheel. He was shut down in the opener against the Clippers, but came back strong with a 29-point game in the Lakers only win of the season, 132-130 over Phoenix. Last time out LA lost to the Pelicans 119-112 and Ball shot just 3-13 for eight points. He’s also leading the team with 9.3 RPG and 8.7 APG.

He’s one of seven Lakers averaging between 20.0 PPG and 11.3 PPG.

But Wall and company are on a mission and should be able to keep their strong opening going against LA.

Bovada has the Wizards listed as 7-point favorites and the game's total is sitting at 228 according to MyBookie.ag
