The Wizards have been a disappointment this season but they are getting close to playing themselves back into the picture in the Eastern Conference.
We all know OKC is good, the question is whether they are good enough to really challenge the elite teams in the Western Conference.
The Wizards have talent but this season they have dealt with injuries and massive inconsistency. When they are at their best they definitely look like a playoff team but it has not happened very often this season.
For this one they are likely without Otto Porter which is not going to make the job of defending Kevin Durant all that much fun for everyone else. Porter is questionable.
I love the game of John Wall, he is just a more consistent outside shot away from being one of the most dominant players in the league, if he is not already.
The problem is he is the only consistent threat they have had this season as running mate Bradley Beal has been in and out of the lineup.
Garret Temple is a nice player to stash but if you are relying on him every night that is not a good thing. Washington just seems to be a little short on overall talent.
Oklahoma City Thunder:
The Thunder are on a roll having won 10 of their last 11 games heading into this one. They are also dynamite at home at 22-5. Washington better be on or else they are likely to get drilled.
If the league were a 2 on 2 contest you would be hard to find a better duo than Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. I know there is a lot of talk about KD leaving but that is because he is a free agent at the end of the season.
The two of them average 51ppg contributing significantly to making the Thunder the second highest scoring team in the league.
I sometimes feel like they get in each other’s way but you can’t deny the level of production.
I also really like the production they get from their center duo of Enes Kanter and Steven Adams. Both are efficient scorers who put in their time on the glass.
This team might not be at Golden State’s level but there are no obvious weaknesses.
