Oklahoma City Thunder | Game #34 Preview: San Antonio Spurs

The Oklahoma City Thunder should be fresh on Tuesday night as they are coming off three days of rest following a 128-125 overtime loss to the New Orleans Pelicans at home on Friday night. The Spurs are in town less than 24 hours after defeating the Utah Jazz 126-122 in San Antonio.

These two teams met on November 30th, a 119-112 victory for the Thunder, who was missing Shai Gilgeous-Alexander at the time. The Spurs are a young team who are struggling to find their way, while OKC looks like they are on the brink of figuring things out and turning into a real threat on any given night.
