The Washington Wizards and Brooklyn Nets are looking to put a rough end to 2012 behind them when they meet Friday night. The Nets enter the game 17-15 and chasing the New York Knicks for the top spot in the Atlantic Division. The Wizards are still struggling to find their footing, made evident by their 4-26 mark that is the worst in the NBA.
This is the first regular-season meeting between the two teams, despite a preseason on Oct. 15 when the Nets defeated the Wizards 98-88 at the Barclays Center. It was the first-ever home game in Brooklyn Nets' history. The Nets and Wizards will meet three more times during the 2012-13 season.
