Why The Wizards Could Cover The Spread

Bradley Beal leads the team with 22.4 points and is second with 5.2 assists per game. Kristaps Porzingis is second on the team with 22.1 points and leads the team with 8.8 rebounds and 1.5 blocks per game. Porzingis has shot 47.6 percent from the field but is out with a sprained ankle. Kyle Kuzma, in his second year with Washington, has averaged 22.0 points per game, which would be a career-high across a full season. Kuzma has also pulled in 7.6 rebounds per game. Washington ranks 11th in the league with 44.1 rebounds per game, and sixth in blocks at 5.3. Monte Morris is the fourth and final Wizard in double-digits, averaging 10.4 points per game. Morris also leads the team with 5.4 assists per game. With the recent trade of Rui Hamichura, there are plenty of minutes to make up for off the bench. Will Barton was averaging the second-most minutes off the bench, and will likely slide into the sixth man spot. Kendrick Nunn, who was the lone player received for Hamichura, has averaged 6.7 points this season for the Lakers, playing sparingly after missing last season with a knee injury.

Washington has been pedestrian offensively, ranking 22nd with 112.8 points per game. Defense has been slightly better for the Wizards, ranking 16th with 113.6 points allowed per game.

Kevin Porter Jr. leads the team with 5.6 assists per game, also ranking second with 19.2 points per game. Across a full season, 19.2 points would be a career-high for the fourth-year pro. Porter will be out until at least the weekend with a foot injury. Eric Gordon, the oldest player on the roster at 34, has shot 34.9 percent from behind the 3-point line, averaging 12.3 points per game.
