The NBA on TNT is going to be fun this Thursday night. Kicking off the doubleheader is Lebron James and friends against Kevin Durant/Russell Westbrook and friends.
The Thunder and Cavaliers figure to be two of the top teams in the NBA when it’s all said and done.
Oklahoma City carries a 6 game winning streak into this one while the Cavaliers hold a 3 game winning streak.
Oklahoma City Thunder
The Thunder are steam rolling right now.
Wednesday night was just another rendition of that as they took it to the Trail Blazers at home 106-90. The Thunder led by just 7 at half time, but eventually pulled away thanks to a giant 3rd quarter behind Westbrook and Durant.
Durant led the way with 24 points as 6 players finished in double figures.
Oklahoma City also has been playing phenomenal on the defensive end. The Thunder held their 7th straight opponent to under 100 points. Overall on the season, OKC is allowing 100.2 points against. That number has gone significantly down during this recent stretch.
PG Russell Westbrook is averaging 27.1 points per road game this season.
Kyrie Irving was expected to return here, but informed everyone himself that he would wait a couple more games. With Iman Shumpert injuring his groin in the win over Boston, the Cavaliers are back to the way they started the season.
No problem though, this team looks exceptionally good right now. The Cavaliers have won 3 in a row and after their beatdown of Orlando, the Cavaliers didn’t break stride in Boston as they routed them too.
During this 3 game winning streak, the Cavaliers are just wearing opponents down. They’re outscoring opponents 142-88.
Cleveland has had no problem at home either. The Cavs are 10-1 SU, with their lone home loss coming to Washington.
Backers haven’t been satisfied with Cleveland as they are just 9-14 ATS this season.
