The Washington Wizards lost to the Brooklyn Nets 119-84 on Friday night.
Here's analysis of what went down...
It Happened Again: After getting upset by the Nets on Dec. 12, it seemed impossible that the Wizards would let it happen for a second time just 10 days later.
Well, guess what happened.
Not only did the Wizards lose to the Nets, they got embarrassed by a Brooklyn team that had lost four straight games entering the matchup.
Nothing worked. They couldn't score or defend and the result was one of their worst losses in a season with a few ugly ones to pick from.
This game, a 35-point defeat to one of the worst teams in the NBA, may in fact top their debacle in Utah on Dec. 4. That night they lost by 47 points, their second-biggest margin of defeat in franchise history. This one, however, came against a much worse team with no one on their roster as good as Donovan Mitchell or Rudy Gobert.
The Wizards' troubles against bad teams just will not stop. They are now 8-9 against sub-.500 teams this season, matching their loss total from all of last year. They were 27-9 against losing teams in 2016-17. Their nine losses against losing teams are tied with the Orlando Magic for the most in the NBA this year.
It's not an early-season trend anymore. This is a real issue the Wizards are going to need to figure out.

Everything Was Bad: There were no silver linings in this one. Head coach Scott Brooks must be furious. Not only did the Wizards shoot 36.6 percent from the field, they allowed the Nets to go off for 119 points and shoot 50 percent on 88 shots.
Six Nets players reached double figures, including Nik Stauskas who was just acquired from Philly after he fell out of the Sixers' rotation. At one point the Nets led by 40 points.
The Wizards struggled so much that even Mike Scott had an off night. He shot just 3-for-8 from the field.
Wall Was Limited: With the Wizards playing two games in two nights and three in the next four days, Wall was on a considerable minutes restriction. Wall has been back five games now from his nine-game absence due to two knee procedures, but he's evidently not in the clear.
The Wizards allowed him to play just seven minutes in the first half as they tried to save him for the third and fourth quarters. But, in part due to the game turning into a blowout loss, Wall played only 16 minutes on the night. He had 10 points and four assists.
Porter is Back: The Wizards were technically at full-strength on Friday, though several guys weren't at full capacity and that includes small forward Otto Porter, who returned after missing two games due to a right hip contusion. He was clearly not himself, however, whether it be because of discomfort in his hip or rust from being off for several days. He managed just six points in 21 minutes.
Up Next: The Wizards keep it rolling on Saturday night in the second game of a back-to-back set. They will host the Orlando Magic at Capital One Arena. Tipoff is at 7 pm on NBC Sports Washington.
