On Friday, January 29th the Brooklyn Nets will face the Oklahoma City Thunder for the second time this season. The Thunder shocked the Nets in the opening match by winning 129-116.
It was the first time Kevin Durant faced his former team since joining the Nets and in this meeting, both KD and James Harden will face the franchise that drafted them.
None of their former teammates remain on the Thunder, however, so there isn’t much of a rivalry unless Sam Presti is offering bonus checks for the victory.
The Thunder owns the all-time record with 59 wins in 92 matches. Last season the teams played a single time due to the pandemic with Oklahoma City winning.
The Big 3 in Brooklyn continue to bond and prove they are an offensive juggernaut. In the overtime match versus the Hawks the superstar trio feasted.
Kevin Durant led the way with 32 points on 13 of 26, James Harden scored 31 on 9 of 20 and dished 14 dimes for a double-double
Kyrie Irving took the fewest shots (17) scoring 26 points and took over late in the match. While the trio is functioning without issue offensively all of their minutes are on the upper end of the spectrum.
Harden, Durant, and Irving rank first, third and 14th respectively for minutes played. Durant is the most concerning of the group given he is returning from the Achilles injury
Spencer Dinwiddie (torn ACL) is lost for the season. Nicolas Claxton is dealing with right knee tendinopathy and is out indefinitely.
Oklahoma City Thunder
This week features matches versus former OKC Thunder players with the club taking on Chris Paul on Wednesday and surprising his Suns squad with the victory.
Last season Paul led the Thunder and he feasted in clutch time specifically in the lineup that featured the trio of point guards, Steven Adams, and Danilo Gallinari.
Despite four-fifths of that lineup no longer being in OKC, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander proved to be a great student of mentor Paul. He led the team in the win over the Thunder scoring eight of his 21 points in the final five minutes of clutch time.
In fact, the Thunder owns the fifth best clutch time win percentage while the Suns rank 25th.
Al Horford returned after spending time with his family for the birth of his daughter and had a huge night registering a double-double of 21 points and 11 rebounds hitting all five of his 3-point attempts.
Luguentz Dort (14), Theo Maledon (11), Darius Bazley (10), and Hamidou Diallo (10) were the other double-figure scorers.
George Hill missed the last two games with a sore thumb is out Friday. Josh Hall (illness), Ty Jerome (ankle), and Trevor Ariza (personal) are all out indefinitely.

While the Thunder has surprised teams this season the Nets won’t take them for granted having already lost to them at Barclays.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Nets ATS
.Former players love to rub salt in the wounds and that’s precisely what Harden and KD will endeavor to do. Besides the Thunder needs to lose a few more games if they want to move closer to the top draft pick.
