Oklahoma City Thunder | Game #29 Preview: Memphis Grizzlies

Less than 3 weeks after the Oklahoma City Thunder’s record setting 73-point loss to the Memphis Grizzlies, the Thunder returns to the scene of the crime for a rematch. In that initial matchup, OKC was without Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Josh Giddey, Kenrich Williams, and Derrick Favors, so some of the blame can be placed on that, but still, there is no excuse for getting blown out like that.

Oklahoma City Thunder | Game #22 Preview: Memphis Grizzlies

The Oklahoma City Thunder is currently tied for the league’s longest losing streak at 7, and it doesn’t look like a win will be coming tonight either. OKC is a double-digit underdog as they take on the Memphis Grizzlies (11-10) on the road, but you never know what this young squad might be able to pull out.

Thunder Against The Spread | The Line Is Too Big At Memphis

The Thunder may be struggling to pick up a win but they’re still a tough out. OKC had won six games in a row against the spread before Monday night and they’re covering 60% of the time on the road this season. That number increases a bit to 63% when playing on the road as an underdog and then 66% of the time when playing the second game of a back-to-back.

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):

Thunder Against The Spread | Memphis Has A Clear Advantage Tonight

Oklahoma City is back at home where they’re only covering the spread 45% of the time this season. As a home underdog that number decreases to 42% and when facing teams that have won 45-55% of its games the Thunder are only covering the spread 41% of the time.

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.

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.

OKC Thunder | Game #39 Preview: Grizzlies

The Oklahoma City Thunder looked solid against a short-handed Dallas Mavericks team on Thursday, but they were actually the short-handed team yesterday with Shai Gilgeous-Alexander sitting out, among others. Today, the Thunder hosts the Memphis Grizzlies, and it will be even worse for OKC as Luguentz Dort, Darius Bazley, Al Horford, and Theo Maledon will all be missing from the starting lineup for various reasons.

Thunder Against The Spread | It’ll Be Tough To Cover vs. Memphis

I’ve got to be honest here. I really don’t like the position that OKC is in right now, especially with the possibility of SGA not being available. Memphis is strong on the road where they cover the spread 65% of the time and Oklahoma City is far from fantastic at home with just a 42% cover rate against the spread. Even more specifically the Grizzlies are 3-1 as a road favorite and the Thunder are 7-11 as a home underdog.
