OKC Thunder | Game #71 Preview: Jazz

The final road trip of the season is complete for the Oklahoma City Thunder, and now they can ride out the season at home. With just 2 games left, Thunder fans can finally rest easy knowing that the Thunder is most certainly in a good position come time for the draft lottery. Still, the games must be played, and while the Thunder isn’t concerned with winning, that’s not the case with the Utah Jazz, OKC’s opponent for tonight.

OKC Thunder | Game #70 Preview: Kings

For the third time in 8 days, the Oklahoma City Thunder will take on the Sacramento Kings this evening for the Thunder’s final road game of the season. Despite the Kings sitting at 12th in the Western Conference and the Thunder at 13th in the Western Conference, the two teams have very different motives headed into tonight’s matchup.

OKC Thunder | Game #67 Preview: Warriors

The Oklahoma City Thunder trailed by double digits for most of their matchup against the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday evening, but they managed to make it a close one before falling at home 103-99. Tonight, the Thunder kicks off a 4-game road trip, which features an interesting schedule quirk where OKC plays the Golden State Warriors twice in a row before playing the Sacramento Kings twice in a row. Tonight’s matchup with the Warriors may seem to be of little consequence at face value, but in reality, there is a lot riding on the result.

OKC Thunder | Game #61 Preview: Sixers

The Oklahoma City Thunder has lost 13 consecutive games, and while it is impossible for them to even tie the NBA record of 26 straight losses, they could get close if they don’t win another game this season. With just 12 games remaining, only 4 of them are against non-playoff teams. Tonight, the Thunder takes on the Philadelphia 76ers on the road.

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.

OKC Thunder | Game #55 Preview: Warriors

The Oklahoma City Thunder lost their 7th consecutive game last night, a 106-96 decision against the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City, but that doesn’t mean they’re improving. Luguentz Dort put up a career-high 42 points as the Thunder played their closest game in weeks against the NBA’s best record.

Oklahoma City Thunder | April 8, 2021

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.
