The Spurs had one of their best defensive games of the season in defeating the Boston Celtics on Friday. Holding them to 37% shooting and just 88 points, San Antonio showed flashes of their early defensive prowess despite missing Devin Vassell due to a quad injury.
Meanwhile, the Wizards have won two straight and are coming off a 120-114 victory over the Mavericks to propel themselves to a 13-7 record on the season. Bradley Beal is having a huge season so far, averaging 23.2 points and 5.9 assists per game.
San Antonio swept the season series last season.

San Antonio Spurs vs Washington Wizards Prediction
The Wizards' defense has been vastly improved this season, but five of their seven losses have come on the road. They're certainly beatable, but it'll take the Spurs finding a consistency that hasn't been there all season.
San Antonio needs to demonstrate they can avoid cold spells from downtown while also limiting their defensive miscues for the better part of 48 minutes. If they can keep this one close, Dejounte Murray has shown an ability to be clutch -- Friday just happened to be the only time it led to a win this year.
I think the Spurs finally don't relax after a victory and take their second straight at home before they hit the road.
Spurs 109, Wizards 102
