The Washington Wizards will try to stretch their impressive winning run on Wednesday, February 1 when they visit the Detroit Pistons at the Little Caesars Arena.

The Wizards will also attempt to go up 2-0 in their regular-season series with the Pistons.

Washington won in their first encounter, 120-99.

In that initial showdown, Deni Avdija led the scoring parade with 25 points and nine rebounds. Bradley Beal, slowly regaining his old form, added 21 markers, seven boards, and seven dimes.

"You never want to be on the losing end of that streak, but it's good to get that one off our chest," Wizards coach Wes Unseld Jr. stated.

The Wizards are averaging 113 points per game and also own an offensive rating of 113.

On the defensive side, Washington is surrendering 113 points as well, which is 14th in the league at the moment with a defensive rating of 113.1.

For the Spurs, it has been a long season as the team continues with its rebuilding efforts.

In their losing campaign against the Dallas Mavericks, Bojan Bogdanovic exerted his best effort to lift the squad with 29 points and five rebounds.

Saddiq Bey chipped in 18 points, five rebounds, and three steals in that matchup.

"We thought Bojan got fouled," Detroit coach Dwane Casey said. "You still have to play in all those situations and close out the game, because we put ourselves in a situation to win."

The Pistons are scoring 112.6 points per game with an offensive rating of 111.

Detroit is also limiting opponents to 120.1 points per contest, which is 29th in the NBA right now.

The Wizards are -6 favorites to come out on top over the Pistons, who are at +6.

Furthermore, the moneyline is -238 for Washington and +198 for Detroit.

The tip-off is set for 7:00 PM ET, with live broadcast on digital platforms such as the NBA League Pass and fuboTV.
