Game 36 - Nets @ Wizards - Friday, January 7, 7:00

The Nets will be trying to break another losing streak Friday.  They've lost four straight on the road and at 3-16 have one of the worst road records in the NBA, second only to the Wizards who haven't won yet.  The Wizards are not having a good year anywhere.  John Wall, the early favorite to win Rookie of the Year, has had injury problems all season and their two young frontcourt stars, Javale McGee and Andray Blatche, were suspended recently after fighting outside a club. They've lost three straight and eight of the last 10.

The game will mark a significant milestone for Brook Lopez. It's his 200th consecutive game. He has yet to miss a game in the NBA. Derrick Favors, who split high school Player of the Year honors with Wall two years ago, will start again. The question with him is, will he get beyond his foul-prone ways?  Only Anthony Morrow and Damion James remain on the sick list. As for when the Nets might add a 15th player, don't expect that until next week when the Nets see who other teams have cut.
