Russell Westbrook has made an early name for himself in terms of the MVP race as the Thunder get set to take on the Utah Jazz on Monday night. Westbrook finished with 31 points and 11 assists in Sunday’s win over the Mavs.
Utah has hit a road block as they have dropped 4 of their last 6 games and now find themselves back to the .500 mark. Their most recent loss came to the Mavs on Friday as they fell 102-93.
Oklahoma City Thunder:
Russell Westbrook is having no problem without Kevin Durant by his side.
Westbrook has 30 or more points in 4 straight games and is averaging 37 per game in that span as he continues to tear apart everyone in his way.
With Durant out with a hamstring injury, the Thunder have really strayed away from Billy Donovan’s new system, but the results are showing. The Thunder had 6 players score in double figures and the team totaled 25 assists in one of the most impressive showings of the season against Dallas.
The road however, has been a bad place for the Thunder thus far. OKC is just 2-3 SU and 1-4 ATS as they’re allowing 114.6 points per game. However, they’ve been able to cancel poor defensive performances as they are scoring 116.2 points per road game.
The Thunder have dropped 3 straight road contests in Utah.
The Jazz started off the season looking like one of the dangerous teams of the NBA.
However, after a 102-93 setback to the Mavs on Friday, they have now dropped 4 of 6 and will look to avoid falling under the .500 mark on Monday.
Monday will mark just the 4th home game this season for Utah, as they’ve played a majority of their 2015-2016 slate on the road. Utah is 2-1 SU at home, but just 1-2 ATS.
Utah’s struggles have came from the offensive end and it has been a consistent problem all season long. Utah has topped just 100 points 1 time this season and is averaging only 95.1 points per game.
For Monday though, the most important factor will be slowing down Westbrook. Expect Trey Burke to get the nod of guarding him, as he is easily the Jazz’s best defender. The Jazz have been a defensive minded team thus far as they allow only 92.4 points per game.
