Open thread: Wizards (16-48) vs. Thunder (42-23)

The Wizards had one of their highest-scoring games of the season the last time they matched up against the Oklahoma City, scoring 117 points in an overtime loss on Jan. 28 to the Thunder. But on that night, the Wizards got 35 combined points from Rashard Lewis and Andray Blatche, who will both be out in the rematch. Nick Young, who scored 33 points in the loss, will also still be nursing a sore left knee. Trevor Booker, however, will get his eighth career start. He scored a career-high 21 points in Oklahoma City. “Not having our front line, where are you going to get points now?” Coach Flip Saunders asked. “We’re going to have to find ways to score and try to find a way to control tempo as much as we can.” Kendrick Perkins, whom the Thunder acquired from Boston at the trade deadline in exchange for former Georgetown star Jeff Green, will make his debut with the team.
