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.

Thunder Against The Spread | Injury Report Says Take The Pacers And The Points

I don’t look for this to be a blowout for the Pacers but I am concerned about OKC’s depth with Dort and Aleksej Pokusevski on the bench beside Mike Muscala. This could easily be a situation where the Thunder remain extremely competitive for three and a half quarters before fading away late.

Thunder Against The Spread | Prepare For Deja Vu Against The Wizards

This line was a bit crazy the last time out because news broke late that Lu Dort wasn’t playing and it pushed the spread up. However, we were able to lock the Wizards at 10.5 early on and held on for the cover. I know that Dort should make more than a one-point difference but OKC is only covering the spread 32% of the time as a home underdog and the Wizards are covering 57% of the time on the road. I’ll take Washington by at least 10 points here.

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 | Sticking With The Under Against Houston

There are a couple of things outside of the season trends that need to be considered here. First, this game has some draft pick implications and it’s pretty important that OKC win it. For that reason, I expect the Thunder to have a shorter bench this afternoon. Secondly, Houston is bad…just really bad. The Rockets haven’t won a game since February 4th and are riding a franchise record 19-game losing streak.

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 #39: 4th Quarter Comeback Gives Short-Handed Thunder Victory

The Oklahoma City Thunder were absolutely embarrassed at home Saturday afternoon as the New York Knicks took them to the cleaners. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Darius Bazley both sat with minor injuries, but losing by 22 points to a .500 team at home is rarely acceptable. Sunday afternoon’s home tilt against the Memphis Grizzlies was similar in some ways, but very different in the outcome.

The Thunder Lowdown | Game #30: Shai Leads, Bench Shines in Win at Cleveland

The Oklahoma City Thunder trailed early on the road against the Cleveland Cavaliers, but it didn’t last for long as OKC took a lead late in the first quarter and never looked back. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander paced the Thunder with game-highs in scoring (31 points) and assists (9) to lead OKC to a 117-101 win away from home.
