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 #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.
