Oklahoma City Thunder | Game #13 Preview: New York Knicks

Eight Thunder players scored in double digits Friday night as OKC rolled over the Toronto Raptors for a 132-113 win in front of the home crowd. At 5-7, it’s really hard to tell if the Thunder plans on tanking or not this season, but one thing is for certain: they are going to compete at a high level night in and night out.

For the first time in a couple of seasons, the Thunder will play an afternoon game as they travel to New York to take on the Knicks Sunday afternoon. The Knicks are 6-6 on the season, and they have developed a reputation of being fairly balanced in terms of good and bad as a team. Because of this, the matchup should be a good one.
