OKC Thunder | Game #45: Celtics

Tonight, the Thunder hosts the Boston Celtics, who have added Evan Fournier, Mo Wagner, and Luke Kornet and have seen the departures of Daniel Theis, Jeff Teague, and Javonte Green. The Celtics are severely underperforming this season, but they are still in a decent position in the playoff standings. Just 2 days after dropping a 2-point decision to the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday, the Celtics were able to defeat the Bucks 122-114 last night, so maybe a big win like that is something that will turn them around.

OKC Thunder | Game #42 Preview: Rockets

At the beginning of February, the Oklahoma City Thunder hosted the Houston Rockets twice in 3 days, and those games could not have been more polarizing. In the first one, Houston slapped OKC by 30, but in the second matchup, it was the Thunder with the big win, a 17-point victory over the Rockets. Today, the two teams meet for the third and final time this season.

The Oklahoma City Thunder is 2-2 since returning from the NBA All-Star Break, but both losses have been by 20+ points to Eastern Conference teams fighting for a playoff spot. Tonight, the Thunder takes on the Hawks in Atlanta, and they have been one of the hottest teams in the league lately.

OKC Thunder | Game #40 Preview: Bulls

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.

The Thunder Lowdown | Game #27: Damian Lillard Catches Fire to Save Blazers from Meltdown

The Oklahoma City Thunder trailed by a lot for most of their matchup against the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday night, but that means nothing to a scrappy bunch who keeps playing their hardest until the final buzzer sounds. Still, despite OKC’s best efforts, it was Portland who was able to come out on top thanks to Damian Lillard catching fire from downtown.

The Oklahoma City Thunder rebounded on Wednesday against the Houston Rockets with an easy 104-87 win just two days after being embarrassed by the same team. Now the Thunder turns their attention to the Minnesota Timberwolves for another 2-game series, but this time it’s a back-to-back.

OKC Thunder | Game #20 Preview: Rockets

It’s only been two days, but here we are again: Thunder vs. Rockets at Chesapeake Energy Arena. The first matchup didn’t go so well for the good guys as Houston was hot from three from the get go. A 48-24 first quarter jump paced the Rockets to a 136-106 blowout over the Thunder, but OKC has a chance at redemption after just one day off.
