Oklahoma City Thunder | Game #74: Denver Nuggets

The Oklahoma City Thunder is fresh off a 118-102 win against the Orlando Magic that a lot of Thunder fans view as a horrible mistake. At this point, OKC has been eliminated from the Playoffs, an expectation from day one, and so the goal should be finishing as low in the standings as possible in order to have a better chance at a top pick. That goal becomes much easier to attain when you play a clearly better team like the Thunder does tonight as they take on the Denver Nuggets on the road.

Thunder Against the Spread | Take OKC As Double-Digit Road Dogs

The Thunder crumbled late against the Sacramento Kings at home on Monday night, and a single-digit deficit early in the fourth quarter ended in a 21-point loss. Regardless, OKC has actually covered the spread more efficiently on the road than at home, while Denver has struggled to cover regardless of where they play. This spread is as much as the Nuggets have been favored all season long, and I just don’t think they can keep the Thunder from making this into a single-digit game late.

OKC Thunder | Game #62 Preview: Denver Nuggets

The Oklahoma City Thunder’s struggles continue, but the same cannot be said for Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. In his three games since returning from a sprained ankle, Shai has averaged 35 points per game while shooting 61.2% from the floor. With the laundry list of injuries that the Thunder is currently dealing with, it just makes sense that SGA would step up and do what is necessary to keep OKC competitive. The Thunder will need another explosive game from Shai tonight as they travel to Colorado to take on the Denver Nuggets.

Thunder Against the Spread | Seriously Lacking Faith in the Thunder

Based on how OKC has played lately, I have very little faith that they can cover a single-digit spread right now. Emotions aside, 7 points seems like a decent enough line to go either way, but again, I just don’t have the faith to take the Thunder in this one after getting blown out by 30 just a couple of days ago.

Oklahoma City Thunder | Game #39 Preview: Denver Nuggets

The Oklahoma City Thunder is still searching for a win in 2022 after three straight losses to kick off the new year, and it might not happen for a while based on the upcoming schedule. The Thunder has 9 straight games against teams that are currently at least in position for the play-in tournament if not firmly cemented in a playoff spot, and the tough run begins tonight at home against the Denver Nuggets.

Oklahoma City Thunder | Game #30 Preview: Denver Nuggets

The Oklahoma City Thunder found redemption on Monday when they defeated the Memphis Grizzlies 102-99 just a couple of weeks after a historic 73-point loss to them. With that win, the Thunder has consecutive victories for just the third time this season. Tonight, the Thunder hosts the Denver Nuggets, who have had their own issues with stringing wins together.

OKC Thunder | Preseason Game #3 Preview: Nuggets

Tonight, the Thunder hosts the first of a back-to-back matchup with the Denver Nuggets. The Nuggets are also winless during the preseason at 0-3, but each loss has been by a single possession, by just a combined 5 points. I wouldn’t hope for a win from Oklahoma City tonight or tomorrow when the teams meet again at the BOK Center in Tulsa, but one thing we can always hope for is some highlights from the young guys.

OKC Thunder | Game #34 Preview: Nuggets

The Oklahoma City Thunder is streaking—at least by their standards—after defeating the Atlanta Hawks 118-109 last night for a second straight win at home. OKC’s longest winning streak of the season is just 3, and they have a chance to match that tonight as they host division foe the Denver Nuggets.

Thunder Against The Spread | Can’t Stop Now, OKC Will Keep Rolling At +7 Against Denver

Oklahoma City is 19-14 against the spread this season and 17-14 against it as an underdog. The scary stat here is that the Thunder are just 2-4 against the spread in the second night of a back-to-back but Denver isn’t performing much better after a day off (11-17).
