Oklahoma City Thunder | Game #10 Preview: Phoenix Suns

Despite being one of the top three-point shooting teams in the league, the Oklahoma City Thunder managed to knock down just 7-of-30 attempts for a 23.3% rate. That’s well below their average, and while that wasn’t the only problem with that game, that was definitely one that stuck out. OKC now looks to get back on track as they wrap up a 2-game road trip with a visit to the Suns in Phoenix.

Thunder Against the Spread | Take OKC to Cover in Phoenix

With the way the Thunder played in Sacramento in Friday, it might be hard to pick them to do much of anything right now, but we have to look at things in perspective. Head coach Mark Daigneault was clearly toying with the lineup a bit, and OKC had an abysmal shooting night, despite being one of the top three-point shooting teams in the league right now. I think the Thunder rectifies the poor outing on Friday and puts on a show tonight to make it a good game in Phoenix.

Thunder Against the Spread | OKC Has Tough Cover At Home Against Phoenix

This is an extremely pivotal game for the Thunder. Not only does it effect the playoff standings, but it could be key for development in a lot of ways. The Suns are clearly built to win a championship, while the Thunder is steadily moving in that direction. In all reality, OKC would stand no real chance against Phoenix in a 7-game series, but if they could pick up a meaningful late-season win, that could go a long way for confidence. With that being said, I’m taking the Thunder to cover, even if I’m not confident in them pulling out the win.

OKC Thunder | Game #79 Preview: Phoenix Suns

With just four games left in the regular season, the Oklahoma City Thunder controls their own destiny in terms of making the playoffs. At 38-40, OKC sits at 10th in the West—1 game behind the Minnesota Timberwolves and 1 game ahead of the Dallas Mavericks. After dropping two games in the last week that they probably should have won, the Thunder has their work cut out for them on Sunday evening when they host the Phoenix Suns.

Thunder Against the Spread | OKC Given Slight Edge Over Injured Suns

The Suns have defeated the Thunder twice in the last month, winning by 31 just a 11 days ago. Things should go differently today, though, as Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is in the lineup for OKC, and the Suns are missing both Kevin Durant and DeAndre Ayton. Luguentz Dort will have a tough cover trying to slow down Devin Booker, who torched the Thunder for 44 points on March 8th, but Phoenix will have their hands full trying to slow down SGA. I like OKC to win at home in this one.

OKC Thunder | Game #71 Preview: Phoenix Suns

The Oklahoma City Thunder suffered a tough 128-111 loss in Toronto against the Raptors on Thursday, but over the last couple of days, the Thunder has actually managed to move up to T-8th in the Western Conference standings due to other team’s losing. OKC can improve their placement again on Sunday afternoon as they play host to the Phoenix Suns.

Thunder Against the Spread | Suns Heavily Favored Over Thunder in Phoenix

With Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Jalen Williams out, the Thunder is severely lacking playmaking ability on both ends of the floor. Still, this is a giant spread, and OKC has plenty of guys that can hit shots. If Isaiah Joe gets hot, or even a more unlikely player like Josh Giddey or Luguentz Dort, then they could definitely keep this a single-digit game. I’m taking the Thunder to cover, even if it is barely.

OKC Thunder | Game #60 Preview: Phoenix Suns

OKC continues their short two-game road trip on Friday night as they take on the Phoenix Suns in the second game of a back-to-back. The Suns are 32-28 and currently sit at 5th in the West, but their placement in the standings is expected to change perhaps sooner than later due to a blockbuster trade that was made bringing Kevin Durant to Phoenix. Durant is set to make his debut in a couple of days as he finishes up his recovery from a sprained MCL in his right knee.
