Nets vs. Wizards game preview: How to watch, TV channel, start time


The Brooklyn Nets (31-20, fourth in the Eastern Conference) host the Washington Wizards (24-27, tied for ninth in the Eastern Conference) on Saturday for the fourth and final matchup between the two teams this season. The Nets lead the regular-season series 3-0.

Brooklyn has won the three game by an average margin of 20 points per game. This includes winning the first game by 42 points, the second game by six points, and the third game by 12 points. In the most recent game, a Nets 112-100 win on December 12, Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving combined for 54 points in the solid victory.

It should be noted that Durant is currently out with a right MCL sprain and that Irving has recently requested a trade from the Nets since neither party could agree on a contract extension. There hasn't been any indication on if Irving will play for Brooklyn after his trade request, but time will tell.
