Oklahoma City Thunder | Game #11 Preview: Milwaukee Bucks

Despite rolling off 4 straight wins to move to 4-3 on the season, the Oklahoma City Thunder is riding a 3-game losing streak after dropping a 112-103 loss to the Detroit Pistons on the road on Sunday.

Tonight the Thunder hosts the NBA’s best record in the Milwaukee Bucks, a team they lost to just a few days ago in Wisconsin. The Bucks are heavy favorites for tonight’s matchup, but they are dealing with some injuries, so perhaps the Thunder can keep the home crowd happy by playing a good game.
