OKC Thunder | Game #49 Preview: Cleveland Cavaliers

The Oklahoma City Thunder suffered a tough 137-132 loss to the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday night, and the competition doesn’t get any easier on Friday…

Thunder Against the Spread | OKC is Slight Underdog in Sacramento

The Thunder has been rolling for a while now, and I feel like it has got to come to an end at some point, but I just can’t bring myself to pick it to happen tonight. The Thunder have owned the Kings for the better part of the last 14 seasons, but since OKC started tanking, Sacramento has finally started to pick up some wins. Regardless of any history, both of these teams have been playing extremely high-level basketball lately, and they both enter tonight on win streaks. At the end of the day, I have a hard time picking against this youthful, energetic Thunder squad.

OKC Thunder | Game #43 Preview: Chicago Bulls

Tonight the Thunder continues their road trip as they take on the Chicago Bulls. The Bulls are just 19-23 on the season—same as the Thunder—and they have lost two in a row. The Bulls have won 4 of their last 5 in Chicago, but they are missing DeMar DeRozan. OKC is also playing in the second game of a back-to-back, so both teams have certain odds stacked against them. In the end, this should make for a quality Friday night matchup.

Thunder Against the Spread | OKC Should Look Good Against Hornets in Charlotte

Charlotte is as healthy as they have been all season, and I’m sure that’s why they’re a slight favorite over OKC, despite the fact that the Thunder has been playing far superior basketball as of late. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is the best player in this game, and despite the news of Poku’s injury, I still think OKC has the better team, and they should get the win road tonight.

Oklahoma City Thunder | Game #35 Preview: Charlotte Hornets

The Oklahoma City Thunder is fresh off a 130-114 win against the San Antonio Spurs, one of the largest margins of victory for OKC all season so far. The Spurs aren’t a great team, but the Thunder has been playing solid basketball lately, and they will look to continue that tonight as they take on the Charlotte Hornets on the road.

Thunder Against the Spread | OKC Looking to Upset the Cavs in Cleveland

The Cavaliers are without Donovan Mitchell tonight, and that makes Shai Gilgeous-Alexander the clear best player in this game, not just the arguable best player in the game. On top of that, the Cavs are playing in the second game of a back-to-back while the Thunder is coming off two days of rest. I’m not just taking OKC to cover but to win the game as well.

Thunder Against the Spread | Expect Plenty of Points in Atlanta

This is a tough one. OKC is playing pretty good basketball; even when they lose, it’s close. Atlanta has looked very back and forth, but with a talented backcourt of Trae Young and Dejounte Murray, they matchup well with OKC. I think this will be a fun close game.

Thunder Against the Spread | Take OKC as Road Dogs in Minnesota

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is questionable to play in Minnesota, which is likely why the spread moved from the Wolves by 5 to the Wolves by 6.5 Still, Minnesota is missing Karl Anthony-Towns, and I think OKC’s backcourt is good enough to keep them in this game, whether SGA plays or not. I expect a close one.

Oklahoma City Thunder | Game #19 Preview: Chicago Bulls

Friday night is the Thunder’s third opportunity in five days to get a win in front of the home crowd, and it should make for a fun challenge as they host the Chicago Bulls. The Bulls have not capitalized on their success from last season, but they are hot off two wins against the East’s top teams in the Celtics and the Bucks. OKC will have to bring their best performance to try to put an end to Chicago’s miniature win streak.

Thunder Against the Spread | Can OKC Beat the Bulls at Home, Thus Covering the Spread?

OKC has had a lot of “so close” moments lately, and I’m not sure I can handle another one. Call me crazy, but I really feel like these young guys need to get a win in front of the home crowd, so what better time than the present? Nikola Vucevic is the kind of big man that could absolutely destroy the Thunder; however, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is the best player in this game, so if he does the things that he can do (and has been doing), then OKC should snap their 3-game losing streak.
