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.

Oklahoma City Thunder | Game #4 Preview: Golden State Warriors

The most exciting matchup of the night should be Steph Curry, who has emerged as an MVP favorite, going up against Luguentz Dort, one of the NBA’s premier backcourt defenders. Steph’s brother Seth Curry shot lights out against the Thunder in the first quarter on Sunday, but maybe Dort can slow down Steph a bit tonight.

The Thunder Lowdown | Game #3: Shai is Fine, Don’t Doubt Dort, and Giddey is Special

The Oklahoma City Thunder put up their best effort against the visiting Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday night, but the late push to keep the game close could only go so far. After trailing by 18 with 9 minutes left in the game, OKC managed to cut the deficit to 10, but that was as close as it would get before losing 115-103. The loss moves the Thunder to 0-3 on the season, and with the tough schedule ahead, it doesn’t appears as if a win may come any time soon.

Oklahoma City Thunder | Game #3 Preview: Philadelphia 76ers

Tonight the Thunder takes on the Philadelphia 76ers in the regular season home opener, and when you take a look at the schedule for the next couple of weeks (Warriors twice, Lakers twice, Clippers once), this may be OKC’s best shot at a win. The Sixers are still missing Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid isn’t entirely healthy, and miraculously, the Thunder is just a 7.5-point underdog.

OKC Thunder | Game Preview #1: Utah Jazz

The 2021-22 NBA season is upon us, and tonight, the Oklahoma City Thunder kickoff their season on the road against the Utah Jazz. The two clubs are extremely polarizing when you take a look at where they are and what their expectations are for this season.

OKC Thunder | Preseason Game #3 Preview: Nuggets

Tonight, the Thunder hosts the first of a back-to-back matchup with the Denver Nuggets. The Nuggets are also winless during the preseason at 0-3, but each loss has been by a single possession, by just a combined 5 points. I wouldn’t hope for a win from Oklahoma City tonight or tomorrow when the teams meet again at the BOK Center in Tulsa, but one thing we can always hope for is some highlights from the young guys.

OKC Thunder | Preseason Game #1 Preview: Hornets

Tonight, the Thunder kicks off the preseason with a home matchup against the Charlotte Hornets. This will be the first game played in front of a crowd since March of 2020 when the entire league was temporarily shut down due to covid-19. Things will look a little different this time around, but it will be nice to be back in the newly named Paycom Center.

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.
