Oklahoma City Thunder | Game #81: Los Angeles Lakers

The final few days of the regular season is upon, and based on Wednesday night’s 137-101 loss to the Utah Jazz, the Oklahoma City Thunder has figured out how to tank again. That’s a good thing considering that tonight they are taking on the Los Angeles Lakers, who aren’t tanking, but certainly don’t know how to win games right now.

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 #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.

Oklahoma City Thunder | Game #5 Preview: Los Angeles Lakers

Tonight, the Thunder hosts the Los Angeles Lakers. This will be the first time since January of 2020 that Russell Westbrook will be in the building, so it will be exciting to see him live and in person playing basketball yet again.

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):

OKC Thunder | Josh Giddey is a Sneaky Good Pick by Sam Presti

Oklahoma City Thunder General Manager shocked a lot of people on Thursday night. With the 6th pick in the 2021 NBA Draft, Presti selected Josh Giddey, an 18-year-old Australian who played 28 games with the National Basketball League’s Adelaide 36ers earlier this year.

Thunder Against The Spread | Prepare For Deja Vu Against The Wizards

This line was a bit crazy the last time out because news broke late that Lu Dort wasn’t playing and it pushed the spread up. However, we were able to lock the Wizards at 10.5 early on and held on for the cover. I know that Dort should make more than a one-point difference but OKC is only covering the spread 32% of the time as a home underdog and the Wizards are covering 57% of the time on the road. I’ll take Washington by at least 10 points here.

OKC Thunder | Game #60 Preview: Wizards

It’s been just 5 days since the Oklahoma City Thunder fell to the Washington Wizards 119-107 on the road, and now the Thunder hosts the Wizards in OKC. Not much has changed in the few days in between: the Thunder lost another game—a 122-116 loss to the Pacers—while the Wizards knocked off the the Golden State Warriors 118-114.

Thunder Against The Spread | Things Could Get Out Of Control With The Wizards

I think this is a night where Russell Westbrook can get whatever he wants from the Thunder. The former OKC All-Star is averaging a triple-double, as he usually does, with 21.9 points, 10.9 rebounds, and 10.8 assists per game. Friday night he went off for 36 points and 15 rebounds in Washington’s overtime win over New Orleans. That said, I think Bradley Beal poses the biggest threat to Oklahoma City. His 31 points per game are enough to just barely edge out Steph Curry as the NBA’s leading scorer and with Dort riding the pine tonight I’m not really sure how the Thunder can counter him. Beal is averaging 33 points per game over the last four and just dropped 37 on Detroit Saturday.

OKC Thunder | Game #58 Preview: Wizards

Tonight, the Thunder takes on Russell Westbrook, Bradley Beal and the Washington Wizards on the road. The Wizards are on a 4-game win streak and are heavy favorites, which should come as no surprise. OKC continues to sit players due to an array of injuries, and a result, they continue to struggle with one of the worst offenses (statistically speaking) in a very long time.
