Thunder Against the Spread | Take OKC to Cover One Last Time

I don’t think the Thunder wants to be anywhere near winning a game, but I absolutely think they’ll end up keeping this one to single digits anyway. The Clippers are resting Paul George, Reggie Jackson, and Norman Powell, so I don’t really expect a blowout to cap off the regular season. Picking OKC to cover seems like a safe bet.

Oklahoma City Thunder | Game #82 Preview: Los Angeles Clippers

It’s been a long season of tanking, but the Oklahoma City Thunder wraps up the regular season tonight as they take on the Los Angeles Clippers on the road. The Thunder was knocked out of the playoffs weeks ago, while the Clippers have cemented their spot at 8th place in the West, where they will take on the 7th place Minnesota Timberwolves. Essentially, tonight’s game doesn’t mean much.

Thunder Against the Spread | Even the Lakers Should Be Able to Cover the Spread Against OKC

Make no mistake about it: the Thunder will do pretty much anything at this point to avoid a win, and that could mean another embarrassing blow out. The difference in tonight’s game compared to Wednesday’s meeting with the Utah Jazz is that the Lakers do not care at all at this point, and their key players may not even be on the bench, let alone in the game.

Oklahoma City Thunder | Game #81: Los Angeles Lakers

The final few days of the regular season is upon, and based on Wednesday night’s 137-101 loss to the Utah Jazz, the Oklahoma City Thunder has figured out how to tank again. That’s a good thing considering that tonight they are taking on the Los Angeles Lakers, who aren’t tanking, but certainly don’t know how to win games right now.

Oklahoma City Thunder | Game #80 Preview: Utah Jazz

The Oklahoma City Thunder did the unthinkable last night when they started three guys on 10-day contracts alongside another two who played heavy G League minutes this seasons, a couple of two-way players, and managed to pull out a 98-94 win against the Portland Trail Blazers. The Thunder literally did everything in their legal capability to tank the home finale against the Blazers, but Portland essentially threw the game themselves by allowing OKC to outscore them 31-12 in the final period, blowing a 15-point fourth quarter.

Thunder Against the Spread | Don’t Expect a Thunder Win in the Home Finale

The Thunder did themselves no favors in terms of the tank the other night when they dominated the Suns at home, so I feel like they’re going to do everything they can within reason to lose this one. At the same time, it’s the home finale, and maybe they’ll want to show out in front of the fans. Still, after an impressive win like Sunday, I expect an equally impressive loss tonight.

Oklahoma City Thunder | Game #79 Preview: Portland Trail Blazers

It’s been a long NBA regular season in a lot of ways, but the end is basically here as the Oklahoma City Thunder will finish the season on a 3-game road trip beginning tomorrow in Utah against the Jazz. Before the Thunder does that, however, they will play one more game tonight in OKC as they host the Portland Trail Blazers for the 2021-22 home finale.

Oklahoma City Thunder | Game #77 Preview: Detroit Pistons

The Oklahoma City Thunder’s season is nearly over, and the countdown continues as the Thunder hosts the Detroit Pistons in what could be a tank matchup to remember. The Thunder is currently fourth in the draft standings, with Orlando and Houston tied for the top spot and the Pistons just 1.5 games ahead of OKC. After Detroit’s win last night against the Philadelphia 76ers, the race to last place just got a little bit more interesting.

Oklahoma City Thunder: Game #76 Preview | Atlanta Hawks

The Oklahoma City Thunder picked up a 134-131 overtime win on Monday in Portland against the Trail Blazers, a puzzling move whenever you’re technically TRYING to lose in an attempt to finish with the best lottery odds at the top overall pick. Even with a diminished roster, the Thunder continues to stay competitive, but that “accidentally winning” likely won’t be a problem tonight as the short-handed Thunder hosts the Atlanta Hawks.
