Oklahoma City has dominated the Timberwolves as they pushed their win streak to 9 earlier this week.
They’ll go for 10 in a row against the Wolves when they welcome them in on Friday night.
The Thunder posted a 101-96 win on Tuesday night as they avoided a late Minnesota run to hold on for the victory.
The Timberwolves are playing some of their worst basketball of the season as they continue to struggle all over the place.
Minnesota has dropped 8 straight games and 12 of their last 13 as their youth continues to be exposed.
It’s been 12 straight games that the Timberwolves haven’t hit the 100 point mark. They are currently averaging just 98.7 points per game this season as that number continues to decrease game by game.
The lone bright spot for the Twolves has been 2nd year player Andrew Wiggins. The former Cavaliers draft pick has averaged 26.5 points per game over the last 4. He dropped in 28 in Wednesday’s loss to the Rockets.
PG Ricky Rubio continued his turnover struggles as well on Wednesday. He committed 8 turnovers as this has become a common problem not just for him, but for the entire team.
The Thunder aren’t just rolling over the Twolves, they’re rolling over everyone right now.
Oklahoma City brings in a 28-12 record overall and are 18-5 at home this season as they look for their 10th straight win over the Timberwolves. The Thunder dominated play on Tuesday, but they nearly blew a late lead as they held on for a 5 point win.
Kevin Durant right now is flourishing and nobody can seem to stop him. Durant’s 29 point outing in Wednesday’s win over the Mavericks marked the 25th straight game he’s recorded 20 or more points. Durant also added 10 rebounds for another double double.
Oklahoma City has won 17 of 21 overall and are having no problem on the offensive floor, unlike their counterparts.
The Thunder have put in 100 points or more in 10 straight games and 16 of their last 17. On the season, OKC is averaging 108.7 points per game.
