Thunder Against the Spread | Expect Another Close One with the Lakers

The Lakers are stacked with seasoned veterans who can have a big impact on any given night. Lebron James and Russell Westbrook are two difference makers for Los Angeles, but they’re not the X-factor when it comes to playing the Thunder. Anthony Davis has found consistent success against OKC over the years, and he should undoubtedly be the key focus for tonight’s matchup.

Oklahoma City Thunder | Game #25 Preview: Los Angeles Lakers

The Oklahoma City Thunder is on a two-game winning streak, if you want to call it that, which is a miracle in itself when you consider the 73-point loss that capped an 8-game losing streak. Two consecutive road wins shows a lot of heart, and now the Thunder is back at the Paycom Center to take on the Los Angeles Lakers for the third time already this season.

Thunder Against The Spread | Keep Riding The Under Against The Lakers

There’s only one team that the Thunder has a winning record against with the point spread and that’s the Lakers. As bad as Oklahoma City has been against the spread this season the Lakers have been worse. LA has only covered the spread once at home and just twice on the season. While the Thunder continue to be one of the worst offensive teams in the NBA, the Lakers are 27th is scoring defense. The Thunder beat LA in OKC when LeBron didn’t play and with him absent again tonight you at least have to like OKC to cover tonight.

Oklahoma City Thunder | Game #8 Preview: Los Angeles Lakers

In the last week, the Thunder has played just two games, both losses, while the Lakers have won three straight. OKC still isn’t exactly concerned with winning, despite the fact that they played especially well against the Clippers on Monday night, but the Lakers are working through their issues, particularly due to injury, while trying to establish somme chemistry.

Thunder Against The Spread | The Over Looks Inviting

There’s the possibility that I’m simplifying this too much but the Lakers have hit the over in three of their four games this season. It’s partly because of the offensive firepower that this team has but also due to the lack of defense they play which allows teams to stay close throughout the contest. The Thunder are next to last in the NBA when it comes to scoring but they’ll get just enough done tonight to make this game hit the over.

OKC Thunder | The 10 Home Games I Can’t Wait to Attend

Now, as the Thunder begins their 14th season, I am finally a season-ticket holder. The Thunder hasn’t had fans in the building since March of 2019, and I for one could not be more excited. Yes, it’s almost guaranteed to be another tank season, and I’m more likely to be in the building for a loss than a win, but I’m still pumped. The NBA announced the full schedule for the 2021-22 season Friday afternoon, so without further ado, here are the 10 games that I’m looking forward to attending the most (in chronological order):
