What to Know

This Friday, the Oklahoma City Thunder are hoping to patch up the holes in a defense that has allowed an average of 117.08 points per contest. They will be playing at home against the Washington Wizards at 8 p.m. ET Friday. If the matchup is anything like the Thunder’s 121-120 win from their previous meeting in November of last year, the scorekeeper will be kept real busy.

OKC ended up a good deal behind the Orlando Magic when they played on Wednesday, losing 126-115. Shooting guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander put forth a good effort for the losing side as he had 33 points.

Meanwhile, Washington came up short against the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday, falling 123-113. A silver lining for Washington was the play of center Kristaps Porzingis, who had 22 points along with nine boards.

Barring any buzzer beaters, the Thunder are expected to win a tight contest. But bettors beware: they are only 3-7 against the spread when favored.

With both teams hitting sour notes in their previous games, they will no doubt be looking to produce a better outcome in this one. Check back to see which squad is able to work their way into the win column.
