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 | The Reason For Hope Against Detroit

Look, it’s been nothing but bad for Oklahoma City recently as the team has entered full-on tank mode to close out the season. Over the last two games OKC has lost by a combined 85 points but I’m still crazy enough to tell you that there’s hope tonight. The reason why is that Detroit seems to be in the same bad shape as the Thunder. This is the first time on the season that the Pistons have been a road favorite so there’s that. Also, the Thunder are 7-2 this season when they are 1.5 to 4.5 underdogs. What that tells us is that OKC is pretty good when matched up against a similar team.

OKC Thunder | Game #50 Preview: Pistons

The Oklahoma City Thunder is coming off their worst lost of the season—a 133-85 decision to the Portland Trail Blazers—and their worst two-game stretch of the season—2 losses by a combined 85 points. Tonight should offer a more reasonable competition as the Thunder takes on the Detroit Pistons at home.

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 #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.

OKC Thunder | Game #42 Preview: Rockets

At the beginning of February, the Oklahoma City Thunder hosted the Houston Rockets twice in 3 days, and those games could not have been more polarizing. In the first one, Houston slapped OKC by 30, but in the second matchup, it was the Thunder with the big win, a 17-point victory over the Rockets. Today, the two teams meet for the third and final time this season.

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.

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.

The Thunder Lowdown | Game #37: Thunder Kicks off Second Half of Season with a Win

The Oklahoma City Thunder kicked off the second half of the season with an impressive 116-108 against a Dallas Mavericks squad who was missing both Luka Dončić and Kristaps Porzingis. Despite the lack of star power for the Mavs, they were still able to make the game interesting in the end. It wasn’t enough, however, as the Thunder finished strong behind a good old-fashioned team effort.
