The Wizards lost a grinder to the Thunder almost two weeks ago in Oklahoma City. Both teams went back-and-forth the entire contest and both offensive units were clicking.

But, I have a feeling that Washington will have revenge on its mind, and with a pumped-up crowd filling the Verizon Center tonight for KD’s homecoming, I expect a fiery Wizards team.

Wittman should call on his big men early and often to exploit the Thunder, and if Wall can remain composed, I see the Wizards holding home court and getting their 30th win of the year.

Wizards 102, Thunder 94
