The Brooklyn Nets head back out on the road for the 5th time in 6 games when they visit the Washington Wizards at Capital One Arena. Here’s how to watch.

The Brooklyn Nets return to the road for a single game Friday night when they take on the suddenly streaking Washington Wizards at Capital One Arena in Washington.

The Wizards (5-9) have won three in a row after losing nine of their first 11, including a 119-95 pasting of the Cleveland Cavaliers at home on Wednesday.

Brooklyn (6-9), on the other hand, has lost three straight. Most recently was a 120-107 loss to the Miami Heat at Barclays Center Wednesday night.

The game against the Heat was the first for the Nets since leading scorer Caris LeVert went down with a dislocated right foot against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday and a slow start put Brooklyn in a hole it never escaped.

The Nets were outscored 37-21 in the first quarter, never led in the game and trailed by as much as 23 in the third quarter. The closest they were able to get in the fourth period was to within nine points.

Spencer Dinwiddie scored 18 points for Brooklyn to go with five assists. Ed Davis grabbed nine rebounds in his first start since February 2017, while Rondae Hollis-Jefferson finished with 14 points and nine boards. D’Angelo Russell added 12 points and five assists, but was just 6-for-18.

Washington never trailed against the Cavaliers on Wednesday and led by as much as 27, with Bradley Beal leading the Wizards with 20 points to go with three steals.

Dwight Howard went for 10 points and seven rebounds, while Kelly Oubre Jr. and Ian Mahinmi each grabbed seven boards as well. All-Star John Wall had nine assists and Tomas Satoransky nabbed three steals.

The Nets are 86-99 in this rivalry since coming to the NBA in 1976, with the Wizards known as the Washington Bullets before the 1997-98 season.

Washington has two seven-game winning streaks in the series, from April 8, 1987, to April 3, 1988, and again from Dec. 26, 2015, to March 24, 2017. The Nets took six in a row from Jan. 16, 2002, to Jan. 29, 2003, and again from March 21, 2006, to Nov. 8, 2007.

Washington has both the highest-scoring game and most lopsided decision all wrapped up in one 143-94 win over the New Jersey Nets at Piscataway, N.J., on Nov. 17, 1978.

Individually, Moses Malone scored 50 points against the Nets in a 118-109 win for Washington at East Rutherford on April 8, 1987. Vince Carter scored 46 for the Nets in a 120-114 win at East Rutherford on April 7, 2007, one day shy of 20 years later.

Brooklyn is 7-14 against the Wizards since making the move to the borough in 2012, but took two of the three meetings between the teams last season. Deron Williams has the top scoring game since the move with 42 points in a 95-78 win at Barclays Center on March 8, 2013.
