The Washington Wizards won their fifth straight game on Monday after a 119-107 result over the Oklahoma City Thunder.
For Washington, the usual suspects did their thing. Russell Westbrook got his eighth consecutive triple double with 13 points, 17 assists and 11 rebounds while Bradley Beal added 30 points to lead all of Washington’s scorers.
Daniel Gafford didn’t start though some of you wished that he would. Anyway, he still scored 13 points on 6-of-6 shooting while adding 5 rebounds in just under 16 minutes of action. If these aren’t ........... Meesseman-seque types of numbers, then I don’t know what is.
I swear to God, Gafford must’ve learned what the Mystics forward is getting for her pregame meal.
Robin Lopez must’ve also had Meesseman’s pregame meal (or Elena Delle Donne’s !!!!) from the Monumental Basketball chefs and did her routine, since he scored 17 points on 7-of-9 shooting. And Davis Bertans shot 6-of-12 tonight, all from the three point line, and had 21 points, including free throws. He definitely had Delle Donne’s routine.
Sorry for the Mystics references everyone if you are wondering if I am thinking of things that are pie in the sky. They’ve been on my mind today for some reason.
If that weren’t enough, the Wizards never trailed in this one. Darius Bazley led the Thunder with 26 points in this game.
Washington has one more game in their homestand where they will face the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday. Tip-off is at 7 p.m. ET. Fans will be allowed inside Capital One Arena for the first time this season as well. See you in a couple days.
