Game Preview


On January 8 at Capital One Arena, the Oklahoma City Thunder (23-11) will play the Washington Wizards (6-29).


During their current run, the Washington Wizards suffered losses to the Hawks, Cavs, and Knicks. In terms of shooting percentage, the Washington Wizards average 115.1 points on 47.9% and surrendering 126.1 points on 50.2%. Jordan Poole averages 16.3 points and 3.6 assists, while Kyle Kuzma averages 22.6 points and 5.8 rebounds. Deni Avdija is pulling down six rebounds, while Tyus Jones is the 3rd player in double figures. The Washington Wizards are making 76.2% of their free throws and 35.3% of their shots from outside the arc. They are pulling down 39.3 rebounds per game and allowing only 38.2% of shots from beyond the arc. However, Landry Shamet and Delon Write of the Washington Wizards are also sidelined with injuries. It is unlikely that the injuries will impact head coach Wes Unseld Jr.’s opening 5.



The OKC Thunder have dropped their previous 2 games and are struggling in the East. They will be keen to get back on track since this is their 3rd meeting of a 4-game road trip. They will have the required momentum for a challenging journey to Miami if they win here. Their confidence should soar after winning their last 2 games against the Wizards. The team led by Mark Daigneault, who had prevailed in 5 consecutive before this dip, is now 1.5 games out of first place in the West. They suffered their 11th loss of the campaign last time out, falling to the Nets 124-115. The Oklahoma City Thunder are making 84.1% of their free throws and 39.4% of their shots from beyond the arc. They pull down 40.7 rebounds per contest and enable just 35.8% of shots to be made from beyond the arc.
