OKC is looking to get their flow going heading into the playoffs. They have nothing to play for other than that right now.
Portland is in a similar boat. They have not quite clinched but I think another win will make the math very favourable for them.
These teams really like to push the ball up the floor and we will get a great PG battle. Should be fun to watch.
The Thunder have lost two of their last three games but they can’t really be blamed for not having their foot down on the gas. This one is interesting though because it could be a first round playoff series if everything stays as it is in the West.
It was typical OKC in their recent road loss at Houston. All Durant and Westbrook and not much else. The duo combined for 56 points, 11 assists and 21 rebounds. Alas they still lost by eight as Westbrook nearly notched another triple-double.
If I were OKC I might be worried that no other backcourt player scored even 10 points in the loss. They have to get some shooters going if they are going to succeed in the playoffs. This group becomes a little too easy to guard.
OKC is a good road team with a 22-15 record. It helps when you have that next level superstars to turn to.
Not helping is the fact that the Thunder are in Denver the night before. You might want to check to make sure guys are not being rested in this one.
Portland Trail Blazers
The Blazers are one of the best stories in the NBA this season. They have sneakily risen to what looks like a sure fire playoff spot with a week to go.
There is no secret to what makes this team go. They always look to push the pace and they come at you in waves on the perimeter. They just ask their bigs to keep up.
Damian Lillard is a fantastic player and probably one of the more underrated talents in the game. Playing on the West Coast and in the Western Conference has limited his exposure.
The same goes for C.J. McCollum who has become one of the best mid-range players this season and exploded to average 20ppg.
All they really ask of their bigs is that they get after the boards and outlet the ball quick. When you are not making shots this group can bury you in a hurry.
I really like the Portland team. They are not championship ready, especially in the West, but they could upset and this game might prove it.
