Everything that’s coming out of the Wizards’ camp doesn’t sound good. The player’s-only meeting from last week was apparently a disaster and then the Wiz got destroyed in Dallas on a night they couldn’t even break 80.
Both John Wall and Bradley Beal were named as reserves on the Eastern Conference All-Star Team but Washington is looking up in the standings to Miami, which doesn’t have a single All-Star.
The Wizards’ defense looks slow and the offense is just flat. It starts with Wall, who just doesn’t have the burst that he used to. I’m not saying he can’t ever get it back again but he doesn’t look right and with so much basketball left to be played, it’s not a good sign for the Wizards.
Wall called for changes by the front office after the last loss and it wouldn’t be surprising to see a shake-up. There are DeAndre Jordan rumors. Otherwise, at the least the Wizards need a bench guy. We’ll see what the executives can make happen.
Oklahoma City outscored the Nets by 12 in the fourth quarter to win by one on Monday night. That game was in OKC so it was an easy cover for Brooklyn, whose defense for three quarters was good enough to cash.
Russell Westbrook and Paul George combined for 60 points. Westbrook is an All-Star reserve; George was snubbed, though it might have just been a result of a tough Western Conference cut.
The Thunder has won five in a row, a win on Thursday would match the season-high winning streak.
OKC will be a big favorite for this game but I’m not convinced the Thunder will just roll. The Wizards will likely bring out the bad basketball in them and this has potential to be an ugly sort of game.

Free Washington Wizards vs. OKC Thunder NBA Prediction: the Thunder win an ugly game.
A lot of isolation and bad offense will cover up the poor Washington defense. Though Westbrook has a chance to torture Wall in this matchup.
