The Washington Wizards are in the middle of a four-game losing streak, but Friday will bring a pretty good opportunity to break that streak against a team that has struggled just as much as they have this season. They are in New Jersey this Friday night to take on the Nets. The game starts at 7:30 pm and can be found on CSN.

While this might not be the juiciest matchup of NBA teams one can possibly imagine, it should provide a pretty good matchup of at least one position. Deron Williams is one of the best point guards in the NBA and should be a pretty good measuring stick for John Wall. Wall played exceptionally well in the lost to the Pistons on Thursday, let's see if he can keep that momentum going against Williams and the Nets.
