The New Jersey Nets return home on Friday, as they host the Washington Wizards at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ. This contest will tip off at 7:30 p.m. ET on the YES Network and will be the rubber match of this three-game, season-series which is tied at one game apiece.
The Nets return home after a lengthy West Coast road trip that ended with a 100-88 loss to the Portland Trailblazers on Wednesday. New Jersey shot just 33-percent from the floor, as it was missing its best player in point guard Deron Willaims, who was a late scratch due to a stomach flu. The hope is Williams can return for Friday's contest.
Meanwhile, the Wizards have lost nine of their last 10 games, including four straight. That lone victory came against the Nets in an impressive 108-89 performance.
