Game Preview

We have a show at the Paycom Center, Oklahoma, when the Oklahoma City Thunder welcome the Washington Wizards for another NBA showdown. The game is scheduled for 8:00 PM EST. The Wizards are coming off a 123-113 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks while the Thunder are coming off a 126-115 loss to the Orlando Magic.

Who will be the team to bounce back from their previous loss?

The Thunder come into this game with a 16-22 record, it has not been their best season and they definitely could have started 2023 better. Their offense averages 116 points per game and is led by Shai Gilgeous-Alexander with his 30 points per game, followed by Josh Giddey, Luguentz Dort and Jalen Williams who also contribute double digits. The defense on the other hand allows 117 points, they are not bad when defending the ball near the arc but the perimeter defense is pretty bad. They will have to work on this if they want to win against Washington.

The Wizards on the other hand, come in with an offense that averages 112 points per game, 48% from the floor, led by Bradley Beal and his 22.9 points per game, Kristaps Porzingis, Kyle Kuzma and Rui Hachimura also contribute double digits.

Although the offense does not score as many points as Oklahoma, their strong point is their solid defense that only allows 112 points per game.

I understand that Oklahoma has very good shooters and they are conceding a good amount of points per game, but the Wizards defense is much more solid and I think they are capable enough to stop the Thunder offense and cover the score at the end. I’m going with the Wizards in this one.
