Steve Clifford has his squad bringing effort to every match and reveling in playing spoiler. They won both games against the Mavericks in the home and home series which could come back to haunt Dallas if they end up missing getting into the play-in.
Of their final six matches, the next four are versus teams all vying to cement play-in seeds including the Thunder, Bulls, and two versus the Raptors.

Defensively, Charlotte is giving up an average of 117.1 points which ranks 22nd. Opponents shoot 47.6% from the field and 35.7% from the perimeter ranking 18th and 13th respectively.

- Terry Rozier PG (OUT —foot)
- Kelly Oubre Jr. SF (questionable—shoulder)
- Cody Martin, SF (OUT —left knee soreness)

To start the week the Thunder reside in the 10th and final play-in seed but have a great opportunity with two games versus lower-tier teams to move up the ladder.
Unfortunately, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander twisted his ankle in the match Sunday which could impact his availability for one or both games versus Charlotte and Detroit.

Free Charlotte Hornets vs. OKC Thunder NBA Prediction:
While defeating the Mavericks in both games points to how well the Hornets are playing it’s also partially tied to how the trade to add Kyrie Irving depleted much of Dallas’s defensive depth.
So this recent uptick in the Hornets’ play could be a bit of fool’s gold as prior to them winning three of four they’d lost four games in a row.
Much will depend on whether SGA plays and even then, the Thunder are strong at home. I like OKC to win but not by nine so I’ll take the points.
