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 | Preseason Game #1 Preview: Hornets

Tonight, the Thunder kicks off the preseason with a home matchup against the Charlotte Hornets. This will be the first game played in front of a crowd since March of 2020 when the entire league was temporarily shut down due to covid-19. Things will look a little different this time around, but it will be nice to be back in the newly named Paycom Center.

OKC Thunder | Game #70 Preview: Kings

For the third time in 8 days, the Oklahoma City Thunder will take on the Sacramento Kings this evening for the Thunder’s final road game of the season. Despite the Kings sitting at 12th in the Western Conference and the Thunder at 13th in the Western Conference, the two teams have very different motives headed into tonight’s matchup.

OKC Thunder | Game #67 Preview: Warriors

The Oklahoma City Thunder trailed by double digits for most of their matchup against the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday evening, but they managed to make it a close one before falling at home 103-99. Tonight, the Thunder kicks off a 4-game road trip, which features an interesting schedule quirk where OKC plays the Golden State Warriors twice in a row before playing the Sacramento Kings twice in a row. Tonight’s matchup with the Warriors may seem to be of little consequence at face value, but in reality, there is a lot riding on the result.

OKC Thunder | Game #56 Preview: Pistons

Tonight, the Thunder takes on the Detroit Pistons on the road. The Pistons are 16-39, dead last in the Eastern Conference standings, but they handled the Thunder just fine in OKC 2 weeks ago. Tonight’s matchup will look a little differently, though, as the Pistons are missing a handful of players to injury, so maybe the Thunder can pull out a miracle and get a win.

OKC Thunder | Game #55 Preview: Warriors

The Oklahoma City Thunder lost their 7th consecutive game last night, a 106-96 decision against the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City, but that doesn’t mean they’re improving. Luguentz Dort put up a career-high 42 points as the Thunder played their closest game in weeks against the NBA’s best record.

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 #47: Raptors

The Oklahoma City Thunder tank session is in full swing, but that doesn’t mean the good guys won’t pick up a win every now and then. After a 21-point drubbing by the Dallas Mavericks on Monday night, the Thunder will have a much better shot at a win tonight as they host the Toronto Raptors.

OKC Thunder | Game Preview #44: Grizzlies

The Oklahoma City Thunder picked up a win in Detroit against the Pistons on Monday behind Shai Gilgeous-Alexander’s 31 points, but tonight, the Thunder will be without their star point guard as they host the Memphis Grizzlies at Chesapeake Energy Arena. SGA is dealing with plantar fascitis in his right foot, so he should be considered game-to-game at this point.

OKC Thunder | Game #43 Preview: Timberwolves

Tonight, the Thunder wraps up a 4-game road trip with a matchup against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Regardless of how you feel about tanking, this isn’t a game that OKC should lose. The Timberwolves are dead last in the Western Conference, STILL behind the Houston Rockets, who have lost 20 consecutive games.
