The Washington Wizards are going to take on Oklahoma City Thunder tonight in their 6th game in the NBA bubble. Check out the match review and where you can catch the action live.
It is not too harsh to say that the Wizards are the worst team in the bubble currently. They are 0-5 in the NBA restart. In their last game, they suffered a 118-107 loss to the Pelicans, who played without their rookie star, Zion Williamson.
Although Thunder thumped to victory against the Lakers, they were held back by the Grizzlies in their last game. The Grizzlies did well to come back from a losing position. Thunder failed to keep the momentum going after 37-25 lead. The Grizzlies outscored them in the second quarter, continued the momentum through the thirds and crushed them in the 4th.

How are the teams lined up?
Oklahoma City Thunder
The Thunder are pursuing their chances to improve their position in the table before the playoffs. Chris Paul has been brilliant all through the Bubble, but he too had an average outing last time round vs Grizzlies.
However, the Wizards have been more than awful and hence the well-oiled Thunder machine should be able to come out with a win.
Predicted lineup: Chris Paul, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Luguentz Dort, Danilo Gallinari, Steven Adams
There is no point to the Wizards playing in the bubble as they have no hopes to qualify. But their reserves will get some good enough exposure against top teams.
Against a highly talented Thunder, Wizards will have something to prove tonight. And with no pressure on their players, we could see a free flowing offensive display from them.
Rui Hachimura and Thomas Bryant have been their best players and are the future of the franchise. They need some close match ups and good clutch plays in the remaining games to get their confidence high for the next season.
Predicted line up: Ish Smith, Troy Brown Jr., Isaac Bonga, Rui Hachimura, Thomas Bryant
