The Thunder have absolutely blitzed the Lakers this season and they’ll get another chance to do so when they head into Los Angeles on Friday in the 2nd of 2 NBA games on ESPN.
The Thunder have won both games by 40+ and 30+ points this season, with the last one coming in 120-85 fashion.
Oklahoma City has simply dominated the Lakers head to head.
Counting the two wins this season, the Thunder have won 12 of 15 overall against the Lakers. Overall, the Thunder have been solid. They’ve won 14 of their last 17, including a a 112-94 win over Memphis on Wednesday.
The 112 point showing marked the 12th time in 13 games the Thunder have scored over 100 points. That has been thanks in large part to Kevin Durant and his stellar play.
Durant has put up at least 20 points in each of his last 21 games. He had 26 points and 17 rebounds in the win over Memphis last time out.
The lone negative spot for the Thunder has been their road play. OKC is just 8-6 SU on the road this year.
The Lakers have been showing some fight as of late.
After going down by 20+ on Thursday in Sacramento, the Lakers battled all the way back to cut it to as close as 1 point. They had a chance to tie it at the end with a 3, but came up short.
D’Angelo Russell played his best game of his rookie campaign as he poured in a season best 27 points. Kobe Bryant also returned from injury and had 28 points as he made a little history himself. Bryant became just the third player in NBA history to surpass 33,000 career points.
F Brandon Bass finally made his mark on the Lakers in Thursday’s loss too. He had 5 steals and played a season high 36 minutes.
