OKC Thunder | Game #54 Preview: Jazz

The Oklahoma City Thunder roster is getting healthier every day, but so far, it hasn’t equated to success in the form of winning. Losers of 6 straight and 9 of the last 10, winning is not at all the priority, but that doesn’t mean the Thunder can’t continue to improve and develop their young core.

Thunder Against The Spread | Here’s One Reason For Hope Against Philadelphia

Once again this is the real challenge for tonight in my opinion. Philadelphia only hits the over in the second night of a back-to-back 44% of the time and OKC only hits it 46% of the time coming off a day of rest. That said, the Thunder are going over the total 63% of the time at home this season and have done so in four of the last five games. With no emphasis on the defensive end of the floor right now it’s really hard to pick the under.

OKC Thunder | Game #52: Cavs

The Oklahoma City Thunder is riding a season-long 4-game losing streak, and no one should be surprised. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander has missed the last 8 games, Luguentz Dort has been out for the last 6, and Darius Bazley hasn’t played since March 4th. Al Horford won’t play another minute this season, and likely won’t ever again for the Thunder. The roster is pretty thin right now, especially lacking in experience.

OKC Thunder | Game #51 Preview: Hornets

The Oklahoma City is in the middle of their worst losing streak of the season right now. For the sixth time during the 2020-21 NBA campaign, the Thunder has lost 3 consecutive games, but none of those other streaks has been as bad as this one.

Thunder Against The Spread | Lock The Hornets

All of the trends against the spread were already going towards Charlotte but even if they weren’t it just isn’t possible to have confidence in OKC right now. The Hornets are covering the spread 56% of the time and the Thunder are down to 50%. On the road Charlotte are is up to 51% against the spread and Oklahoma City is down to 40% at home.

Thunder Against The Spread | The Reason For Hope Against Detroit

Look, it’s been nothing but bad for Oklahoma City recently as the team has entered full-on tank mode to close out the season. Over the last two games OKC has lost by a combined 85 points but I’m still crazy enough to tell you that there’s hope tonight. The reason why is that Detroit seems to be in the same bad shape as the Thunder. This is the first time on the season that the Pistons have been a road favorite so there’s that. Also, the Thunder are 7-2 this season when they are 1.5 to 4.5 underdogs. What that tells us is that OKC is pretty good when matched up against a similar team.

OKC Thunder | Game #50 Preview: Pistons

The Oklahoma City Thunder is coming off their worst lost of the season—a 133-85 decision to the Portland Trail Blazers—and their worst two-game stretch of the season—2 losses by a combined 85 points. Tonight should offer a more reasonable competition as the Thunder takes on the Detroit Pistons at home.

OKC Thunder | Game #49 Preview: Blazers

The Oklahoma City Thunder looked much more like the expected tanking team that they are last night as they suffered a scorching 140-103 loss to the Phoenix Suns. There is no rest for the weary, however, as tonight they travel all the way to Portland where they will take on the Portland Trail Blazers.

OKC Thunder | Game #48 Preview: Suns

The Oklahoma City Thunder continues to shock the world when they do what they did on Wednesday night by using a shortened roster to pull off a win against a superior team. The Thunder managed a 113-103 victory over the Toronto Raptors just two days ago despite starting a lineup that features 0 of the players from opening night. Tonight, that same lineup will take on the Phoenix Suns on the road.
