Point guard Russell Westbrook has been outstanding for the Oklahoma City Thunder so far this season. The 5X All-Star is trying to steer the Thunder back to the playoffs for the sixth season in a row. He should be able to continue his hot streak on Wednesday, when the 11-8 Thunder host the 6-10 Washington Wizards.

Westbrook has seven triple-doubles through the first 18 games of the season. He’s second in the league in scoring and assists. The last time he faced the Washington Wizards was February last season, and he put up 17 points, 11 assists and 13 rebounds in the 114-98 win. The Thunder have dominated the Wizards as of late, winning four in a row straight up. To make matters worse, the Wizards are just 1-5 away from home this season.
The Wizards have been struggling this season, especially on the road. They’re 1-5 away from home and 5-5 at home. The main issue has been their offense, which seems to disappear on the road. At home, they’re averaging 105.8 points per game, but on the road, they’re scoring only 96.5, which is 22nd in the NBA.
The Thunder, meanwhile, are 7-4 at home this season, and they’ve won three of their last four contests on home court. They’ve been very streaky overall, with four separate two-game winning streaks this season and two separate three-game losing streaks.
Oklahoma City is 7-3 SU (four straight wins) and 5-4-1 ATS (three straight wins and a push) in their last 10 against the Wizards, who are 0-7 SU and 2-3-2 ATS in their seven trips to Oklahoma City.
