Yes, the Nets have been a disaster lately. They made a big trade Thursday to bring in Ben Simmons, Seth Curry and Andre Drummond, while dealing away James Harden and Paul Millsap. Harden was already ruled out for this game, so no big change there. Plus, Kyrie Irving will be able to play. On the other hand, the Wizards traded away Spencer Dinwiddie and Montrezl Harrell. Daniel Gafford (COVID-19) is also out, so they are going to be in rough shape behind Kyle Kuzma.
The Nets traded James Harden on Thursday but he wasn't playing tonight anyways. Kyrie Irving will and I'm going to take the points because frankly I think the Nets are better off without the whiny Harden but also because the Wizards traded away rotation players Spencer Dinwiddie, Aaron Holiday and Montrezl Harrell today -- and are of course without Bradley Beal (and Daniel Gafford).
