OKC Thunder | Game #52: Cavs

The Oklahoma City Thunder is riding a season-long 4-game losing streak, and no one should be surprised. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander has missed the last 8 games, Luguentz Dort has been out for the last 6, and Darius Bazley hasn’t played since March 4th. Al Horford won’t play another minute this season, and likely won’t ever again for the Thunder. The roster is pretty thin right now, especially lacking in experience.

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.

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 #48 Preview: Suns

The Oklahoma City Thunder continues to shock the world when they do what they did on Wednesday night by using a shortened roster to pull off a win against a superior team. The Thunder managed a 113-103 victory over the Toronto Raptors just two days ago despite starting a lineup that features 0 of the players from opening night. Tonight, that same lineup will take on the Phoenix Suns on the road.

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 #46 Preview: Mavericks

There is no other way to word it at this point: OKC is tanking. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is out for quite some time, Darius Bazley is still hurt, and Luguentz Dort is currently in concussion protocol, so the Thunder is lacking in the consistency department. Still, this is a great opportunity for the young guns to gain some experienced, and it all starts tonight asa the Thunder hosts the Dallas Mavericks.

OKC Thunder | Game #45: Celtics

Tonight, the Thunder hosts the Boston Celtics, who have added Evan Fournier, Mo Wagner, and Luke Kornet and have seen the departures of Daniel Theis, Jeff Teague, and Javonte Green. The Celtics are severely underperforming this season, but they are still in a decent position in the playoff standings. Just 2 days after dropping a 2-point decision to the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday, the Celtics were able to defeat the Bucks 122-114 last night, so maybe a big win like that is something that will turn them around.

Thunder Against The Spread | Boston Is A Terrible Road Favorite

Tonight is a battle between a bad home team and an even worse road team. The stats above more than prove how bad each have been in this particular situation. Another consideration here is that this is the second game of a back-to-back for Boston and the Celtics are 3-6 against the spread in that particular situation. On the other hand Oklahoma City is fresh and the Thunder are beating the spread 55% of the time this season following a day off.

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.
