Sim Life with ‘NBA Live 19’: Thunder at Wizards, Timberwolves at Warriors
Two of the league’s best guards lead the way in blowout wins
TGIF, NBA Live 19 fans. This week comes to an end with a star-studded doubleheader on ESPN (8 p.m. Eastern time). First, Russell Westbrook and the Oklahoma City Thunder head to Washington, D.C., to face John Wall’s Wizards, who desperately need a win. Then the defending champion Golden State Warriors welcome the dysfunctional Minnesota Timberwolves to a splash party at Oracle Arena in Oakland, California.
THUNDER AT WIZARDS

- The ESPN Matchup Predictor is giving Washington a 57.1 percent chance to get the W.

This game wasn’t even close, as the Thunder led by as many as 31 points en route to an easy road win.
