Our Prediction:

Washington Wizards – Oklahoma City Thunder Match Prediction | 21-08-2019

First, Wall ankle injury suffered in the last round and I attended the training session the day after the scheduled game against the Pacers. Secondly, their favorites seriously struggled four days ago against red lantern Brooklyn Nets, imposing very hard in overtime. Finally, Cavs past week has interrupted a series of successes on their parquet, which is why you may now appear a sort of relaxation. However, there are certain aspects of the recent past that should concern them fans of Verizon Center.

and Otto Porter? He has untapped passing ability, so maybe a little high-low action from the elbow with cutters like Kelly Oubre Jr. The possibilities are endless! Howard can set hard screens to free up Beal on the perimeter. With his debut on Friday, well be able to see what it looks like when John Wall has a legitimate rim-running, above-the-rim athlete as a pick-and-roll partner. And yet, the best chance the Wizards have of salvaging their season is through the incorporation of Dwight into their rotation.

These two guys will be the most important players on the floor for each of their respective teams, and will have a major say in the outcome of the game. Westbrook is quietly averaging almost a triple-double again this season, with 25.7 points, 9.5 rebounds and 10.1 assists to go with two steals a night, and though he has at timesbeen typically inefficient, his last six weeks have been special. Unfortunately he probably wont be, and though Beal wont exclusively play the point against Westbrook he will spend significantly more time with the ball in hand than he normally would. He is averaging more assists per game this season (3.8) than ever in his career, and his 23.9 points is also a career high. When these two sides met just last week, Beal had 41 points, 12 boards and seven dimes, while Westbrook had 46-6-6. Bradley Beal vs Russell Westbrook If Wall was playing, he would engage in what is always a fascinating matchup between himself and Westbrook.

Bradley Beal led the way with a game-high 33 points, nine rebounds and seven assists, Trevor Ariza added 21 points and six assists on six of 19 shooting, while Otto Porter Jr. The Washington Wizards have been in a real slump as theyve lost 10 of their last 14 games and they will be looking to bounce back after falling short against the Heat in a 115-109 road loss on Friday. As a team, the Wizards shot just 42 percent from the field and 10 of 36 from the 3-point line as they cut a nine-point fourth quarter deficit to just one with less than a minute left until the Heat ran away it. chipped in with 14 points off the bench. With the loss, Washington fell to 15-24 overall and 4-17 on the road.

The Thunder are 30th in the NBA in forcing turnovers with 17.6 per game. Their defense allows a 45% shooting percentage and a 34% average from 3-point range, ranking them 8th and 4th in those defensive statistics. The Thunder are 14th in turnovers per game with 14.3. The Thunder surrender 105.5 points per contest, which ranks them 4th in the NBA. They are 2nd in the league in rebounding with 48.8 boards per game and 24th in assists per contest with 22.3.

The Wizards are only 2-6-1 ATS in the last nine meetings overall while the Thunder are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 home games. With that being said, I'm sticking with the surging Thunder to stay hot with an easy win and cover at home in this one. The Wizards have been in a world of hurt lately and things haven't gotten better in the absence of John Wall so it's hard to see anything but a win for the red-hot Thunder who have already beaten the Wizards by 134-111 back on Nov 2.

Current Offers

Gortat will simply not be able to keep him off the glass at this end of the floor, and the Thunder will score plenty of second chance points. Gortat is on the decline, while Adams is fast turning into one of the most dangerous inside presences in the game. Another major problem for the Wizards will be Steven Adams. He is leading the league in offensive rebounds with 5.2 per game for the season, but during the Thunders current win streak this increases to an incredible seven per night.

Looking at the betting trends, the Wizards are 16-35 ATS in their last 51 road games, 2-5 ATS in their last seven games against a team with a winning record and 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games overall. The Thunder are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 home games, 4-1 ATS in their last five home games against a team with a losing road record and 4-1 ATS in their last five games overall.

''Otto just wants to play and play well and play the right way,'' Brooks said. ''If we keep him there for a while, who knows. I know we haven't won every game, but we've been playing hard, and we have to keep doing it. But we have been playing some good basketball.

Kids they grow up so fast. There comes a time in every parents life that they have to begin to let go and allow their children to blossom on their own.
