The Washington Wizards will look to cast a spell on the Brooklyn Nets in a 2020-21 NBA Regular Season game at the Capital One Arena on the morning of 1 February 2021, with tip-off at 02:00 CAT.

After a long Covid-19 layoff, the Wizards returned to action this past weekend with a 121-101 defeat to the San Antonio Spurs. It was not the result the Washington Franchise would have hoped for, but at least they were able to get back on the court and resume their heavily disrupted season.

"This whole season for us has been weird," Wizards coach Scott Brooks said. "Definitely, I don't think I will ever go through anything like this again. It all happened after one game after another. We can't keep dwelling on it, we have to put it behind us. We got the first game in. I'm glad we did that."

He added, "I think all of our guys are going to have to get back in NBA rhythm. It's been totally taken away from us."

As for the Nets, the initial bump in performance they saw from the arrival of James Harden has dropped off, but they always have the outstanding Kyrie Irving to pull them out of a fire – such as he did this past weekend by putting up 28 points in a victory over the Miami Heat.

"We had two losses where we had to learn a lot very quickly," Irving said. "And we just moved on to the next night. And I feel like we gave the effort in spurts, and obviously we want to have more consistency in that -- and that'll take time. I'm happy with the effort tonight."

In head-to-head terms, the Wizards and the Nets have met in 193 Regular Season games since 1976-77. Washington have claimed 104 wins compared to 89 for Brooklyn.

The teams met in three Regular Season games in 2019-20, with the Wizards winning two. The most recent clash ended 118-110 in favour of Brooklyn, thanks to 34 points from Caris LeVert.
