The Oklahoma City Thunder spent a lot of energy last night making a big comeback on the road to beat the Charlotte Hornets. The Washington Wizards do have a big rest advantage, however, they're simply not looking like a good basketball team right now, as the offense isn't clicking and they're dead last in points allowed per game. OKC has improved drastically offensively in its last three games and has won seven of the last 10 meetings against the Wizards. We're getting a free bucket with the better team. Give me the Thunder yet again.
