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.View More OKC Thunder | Game #71 Preview: Jazz

Thunder Against The Spread | A Similar Result Could Be Coming At Sacramento
Once again this comes down to simple semantics. Just like the Golden State Warriors set last week, OKC is coming off a blowout loss and has to take the court again, on the road, against the same team. There’s nothing here to lead someone to believe the Thunder can cover. OKC could have Dort back in the lineup tonight but they are without point guard Theo Maledon. Is that enough to make up 17 points from Sunday’s performance? I don’t believe that it is.View More Thunder Against The Spread | A Similar Result Could Be Coming At Sacramento
Thunder Against The Spread | Can OKC Keep It Close Against The Warriors This Time Around?
The proof is in the results already. Oklahoma City has failed to keep it close in two games against Golden State this season. Unless the Warriors decide to rest the entire roster there should be no reason to believe the Thunder can keep it close again tonight.View More Thunder Against The Spread | Can OKC Keep It Close Against The Warriors This Time Around?
Thunder Against The Spread | Is A Manageable Spread Against The Kings A Trap?
I’m really torn here because based on trends this is a game where Oklahoma City should cover. I’m scared by the 4.5 line though because that means the Thunder will be in a position to win and you can’t really deny that they don’t really want to do that. In fact, I would go so far as to say that the last thing they want to do is mess around and accidentally win this game.View More Thunder Against The Spread | Is A Manageable Spread Against The Kings A Trap?

The Thunder Lowdown | Game #41: Off Shooting Night Dooms Thunder in Atlanta
Luguentz Dort hit a 3 less than a minute into the game on Thursday night to open up the scoring for the Oklahoma City Thunder, giving OKC a 3-2 lead over the Atlanta Hawks, but it was all Atlanta the rest of the way.View More The Thunder Lowdown | Game #41: Off Shooting Night Dooms Thunder in Atlanta
OKC Thunder | Game #39 Preview: Grizzlies
The Oklahoma City Thunder looked solid against a short-handed Dallas Mavericks team on Thursday, but they were actually the short-handed team yesterday with Shai Gilgeous-Alexander sitting out, among others. Today, the Thunder hosts the Memphis Grizzlies, and it will be even worse for OKC as Luguentz Dort, Darius Bazley, Al Horford, and Theo Maledon will all be missing from the starting lineup for various reasons.View More OKC Thunder | Game #39 Preview: Grizzlies
OKC Thunder | Game #21 Preview: Timberwolves

OKC Thunder | Game #19 Preview: Rockets
The Oklahoma City Thunder had a rough start to the weekend after a gut-wrenching 147-125 blowout loss on Friday night against the Brooklyn Nets.

OKC Thunder | Game #17 Preview: Suns
Tonight, the Thunder takes on the Phoenix Suns in the first matchup between Chris Paul and his former OKC squad. Paul is doing a solid job leading the Suns so far, but they are without Devin Booker, so this should make for a great matchup.View More OKC Thunder | Game #17 Preview: Suns
