Washington vs Brooklyn Analysis and Prediction
According to sports betting experts, it is the third time in 13 months that a prominent player asked to be traded from the Brooklyn Nets. James Harden got what he wanted with the help of a trade that sent Ben Simmons to the Philadelphia 76ers. After the Boston Celtics swept them in four games in the first round of the playoffs, Kevin Durant requested a trade. He had a heated discussion with the team’s leadership during the tumultuous summer.
Durant wanted to leave because of the team’s lack of success after his left knee injury. The Nets went on a skid of 11 straight losses when he was sidelined, losing 16 of 21 last season. With the great striker still out with a right knee injury this year, Brooklyn has struggled to a 4-7 record.
Following Wednesday’s humiliating loss in Boston (139-96) and Irving’s alleged trade request, Brooklyn made a pathetic performance at home (96-89). The Nets won four of their previous six games. However, they fell behind by as many as 49 points after the first quarter, where they were outscored 46-16.
According to basketball betting Korea sources, the Wizards lost all three meetings between November 4 and December 12 against Brooklyn. Their record slipped to 11-20 after losing two in a row amid a 10-game losing streak. Washington has gone 13-7 since then, moving them up from a tie for 12th in the East to a tie for 9th.
