I've been iffy on the Thunder lately and laying numbers, as OKC keeps having a hard time finding production outside of Westbrook who continues to do everything for this team. And even being a one-man show, the Thunder are still better than the Washington Wizards and should be big favorites in this spot. The key for this game is the size of OKC, as Washington can't matchup on the boards. I like the Thunder to win this game easier than their past games.
