Oklahoma City Thunder | Game #15 Preview: Washington Wizards

Tonight the Thunder continues their road trip as they take on the Washington Wizards. The Wizards are riding a 4-game win streak, and Bradley Beal is set to make a return after missing 5 games due to COVID-19 protocols and conditioning issues. In his absence, Kristaps Porzingis has played well, especially in the last two games, scoring 31 and 25 points respectively.

Oklahoma City Thunder | Game #40 Preview: Washington Wizards

The Oklahoma City Thunder got off to an ugly start on Sunday against the Denver Nuggets before rallying to make it a close game. It’s going to take some of that resilience to survive the upcoming schedule as the Thunder play 5 of their next 6 games on the road, starting with tonight’s game against the Washington Wizards.

Thunder Against The Spread | Prepare For Deja Vu Against The Wizards

This line was a bit crazy the last time out because news broke late that Lu Dort wasn’t playing and it pushed the spread up. However, we were able to lock the Wizards at 10.5 early on and held on for the cover. I know that Dort should make more than a one-point difference but OKC is only covering the spread 32% of the time as a home underdog and the Wizards are covering 57% of the time on the road. I’ll take Washington by at least 10 points here.

OKC Thunder | Game #60 Preview: Wizards

It’s been just 5 days since the Oklahoma City Thunder fell to the Washington Wizards 119-107 on the road, and now the Thunder hosts the Wizards in OKC. Not much has changed in the few days in between: the Thunder lost another game—a 122-116 loss to the Pacers—while the Wizards knocked off the the Golden State Warriors 118-114.

Thunder Against The Spread | Things Could Get Out Of Control With The Wizards

I think this is a night where Russell Westbrook can get whatever he wants from the Thunder. The former OKC All-Star is averaging a triple-double, as he usually does, with 21.9 points, 10.9 rebounds, and 10.8 assists per game. Friday night he went off for 36 points and 15 rebounds in Washington’s overtime win over New Orleans. That said, I think Bradley Beal poses the biggest threat to Oklahoma City. His 31 points per game are enough to just barely edge out Steph Curry as the NBA’s leading scorer and with Dort riding the pine tonight I’m not really sure how the Thunder can counter him. Beal is averaging 33 points per game over the last four and just dropped 37 on Detroit Saturday.

OKC Thunder | Game #58 Preview: Wizards

Tonight, the Thunder takes on Russell Westbrook, Bradley Beal and the Washington Wizards on the road. The Wizards are on a 4-game win streak and are heavy favorites, which should come as no surprise. OKC continues to sit players due to an array of injuries, and a result, they continue to struggle with one of the worst offenses (statistically speaking) in a very long time.

OKC Thunder | Game #2 Preview: Washington Wizards

Tonight, the Thunder hosts the Washington Wizards, who are preparing for what could be a tough season of their own. John Wall injured his right achilles last season, and he won’t be back until at least February, which puts the burden of leading the team solely on Bradley Beal’s shoulders.

Don’t Be Fooled, Thunder Fans: OKC Is Not Trading for Another Star

Nowadays, rumors spread like wildfire, and the only phrase a person has to use to be given some form of legitimacy is “sources say.” I’m not sure who “sources” is, but the line between fact and fiction is greyed by the ability of just about anyone to say just about anything on just about any social media platform that exists.
