2013 NBA schedule: Wizards begin a tough stretch Friday against the Nets

The Wizards put their 4-26 record to the test against the Eastern Conference's and Western Conference's leaders later in the weekend.

The Washington Wizards open a brutal three-game, four-day stretch Friday with a home game against the rejuvenated Brooklyn Nets.

The Nets are 3-1 since P.J. Carlesimo took over as interim coach once Avery Johnson was fired, and Brooklyn just took a 110-93 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday.

After hosting the Nets, the Wizards—who are 4-26—will travel Saturday before taking on the Miami Heat in South Beach on Sunday. Washington will then turn right back around and host the Thunder on Monday.

The Wizards' season continues to trend downward. They've lost 11 of 12 in an odd fashion: Nine of the losses were by 10 points or less, and the other two losses were a 102-72 loss at Miami on Dec. 15 and a 100-68 loss at the Detroit Pistons on Dec. 21.

Washington has not won consecutive games this season.

On the country's other coast, the Los Angeles Clippers and Los Angeles Lakers face off at 10:30 p.m. ET on ESPN. The Clippers, Friday's designated home team, won their only other meeting this season, a 105-95 win on Nov. 2.
