The Wizards have bounced back from a 10-game losing streak during the early part of their 2022-23 regular season schedule and are pushing for a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference as we inch closer to the All-Star break.
In order for Washington to continue its winning ways, they'll have to go through the Brooklyn Nets on the road. The Nets overcame a slow start to the season to climb all the way to second place in the East, but an injury to Kevin Durant has caused them to slide down to fourth over the last month. In their last game, Brooklyn was rolled by the Boston Celtics 139-96.
Even without Durant, Kyrie Irving and the Brooklyn offense pose a significant challenge for the red-hot Wizards. Here's everything you need to know to watch the Wizards take on the Nets on NBC Sports Washington.

WIZARDS vs. NETS WHAT TO WATCH
From NBC Sports Washington's Chase Hughes:
"The Wizards' third-year forward took another step in his development as a young player, right before our eyes on Monday night, dropping a career-high 25 points in a win over the Spurs. It was the first time the Wizards won a game in San Antonio since 1999, i.e. before Avdija was born in 2001." Read more
