Playing in the second game of a back-to-back on the road is tough, especially when you play full minutes. OKC is doing just that, and despite a hefty win over the Sixers in Philadelphia last night, the Thunder’s main guys played their typical minutes, so they might be a little tired tonight. Still, Chicago is playing without DeMar DeRozan and perhaps Zach Lavine. Either way, unless OKC has a surprise and decides to rest Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, I think there’s a good shot the Thunder keeps rolling and grabs another win on the road.View More Thunder Against the Spread | Take OKC as a Slight Underdog in Chicago
Tonight the Thunder continues their road trip as they take on the Chicago Bulls. The Bulls are just 19-23 on the season—same as the Thunder—and they have lost two in a row. The Bulls have won 4 of their last 5 in Chicago, but they are missing DeMar DeRozan. OKC is also playing in the second game of a back-to-back, so both teams have certain odds stacked against them. In the end, this should make for a quality Friday night matchup.View More OKC Thunder | Game #43 Preview: Chicago Bulls
Friday night is the Thunder’s third opportunity in five days to get a win in front of the home crowd, and it should make for a fun challenge as they host the Chicago Bulls. The Bulls have not capitalized on their success from last season, but they are hot off two wins against the East’s top teams in the Celtics and the Bucks. OKC will have to bring their best performance to try to put an end to Chicago’s miniature win streak.View More Oklahoma City Thunder | Game #19 Preview: Chicago Bulls
OKC has had a lot of “so close” moments lately, and I’m not sure I can handle another one. Call me crazy, but I really feel like these young guys need to get a win in front of the home crowd, so what better time than the present? Nikola Vucevic is the kind of big man that could absolutely destroy the Thunder; however, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is the best player in this game, so if he does the things that he can do (and has been doing), then OKC should snap their 3-game losing streak.View More Thunder Against the Spread | Can OKC Beat the Bulls at Home, Thus Covering the Spread?
The Oklahoma City Thunder has yet to pick up a win at home in 2022, but tonight might be the night as they host the Indiana Pacers. Despite a 6-game losing streak, one could make the argument that the Thunder isn’t playing terrible basketball considering how close some of their losses are. The goal of tanking seems to be the priority, but competing and developing go right along with that, and that’s exactly what OKC is doing well.View More Oklahoma City Thunder | Game #48 Preview: Indiana Pacers
The slide continues for the Oklahoma City Thunder, but they may get a chance to pick up a win tonight as they host the banged up Chicago Bulls. At 28-17, the Bulls are third in the Eastern Conference standings, but their injury report is a long one, and they could confirm even more guys out before tip-off.View More Oklahoma City Thunder | Game #47: Chicago Bulls
What’s your confidence level in the Thunder right now? Mine isn’t very high and to pick OKC to cover as a 2-point dog is practically picking them to win. I do think that this will be a close game but I’m certainly not in the position to where I feel comfortable picking Oklahoma City to end its current five game losing streak.View More Thunder Against the Spread | Will OKC Keep It Close Against The Bulls?
Both teams have a similar overall winning percentage against the spread this season but Oklahoma City is a much stronger road team than Chicago is a home team. The Bulls are just 8-12-1 against the spread at home this season and the Thunder are 13-6 against the spread on the road.View More Thunder Against The Spread | Picking The Thunder & The Over
Tonight, the Thunder takes on the Chicago Bulls in the first game of a 4-game road trip. The Bulls are just 17-20 on the season, but at 9th in the Eastern Conference standings, they are in position to make a push for the playoffs. OKC is short-handed once again, but like we tend to say pretty much every night around here, don’t count the Thunder out, especially with Shai Gilgeous-Alexander on the floor.View More OKC Thunder | Game #40 Preview: Bulls
After trailing by as many as 22 in the third quarter, it looked like the losing streak would continue, but Luguentz Dort and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander had other plans.View More The Thunder Lowdown | Game #12: Thunder Grabs First Home Win Behind Career Nights by SGA and LuDort
