The Los Angeles Lakers are still trying to work through youthful mistakes, as they visit the Oklahoma City Thunder. Los Angeles is riding a one game win. They last beat the Nets, 102-99. Oklahoma City is a work in progress. The Thunder have lost three in a row. OKC took their last loss to the New Orleans Pelicans 114-100.
The last time Los Angeles and New Orleans faced each other, was this year. The two teams have seen each other twice, with the Thunder winning both matchups. OKC took the last meeting, 114-90.
Los Angeles Lakers
Los Angeles is still one of the worst teams in the NBA this season, but have won five of their last seven games. The Lakers got a close road win at Brooklyn, 102-99. Los Angeles shot 42.4 percent from the floor and 38.5 percent from three point land.
The Lakers are looking to build upon their last win, but they face a team that has beaten them twice this season. The Lakers lost the most recent game against the Thunder by 24 points. Los Angeles shot 46.9 percent from the floor and 38.5 percent from three in the loss.
Julius Randle seemed to be the only Laker to get off the bus. He led the team with 16 points on 8 of 11 shooting from the floor. Aside from Randle, everyone else scored in single digits. Look for a better game from Brandon Ingram. He had eight points against OKC their last game.
Aside from the bad play against the Thunder, Los Angeles is allowing 110.1 points per game. Ranking the team 27th in points allowed this year. Don’t expect the Lakers defense to improve this season. The team is too young to understand the quality of defense needed to be successful in the NBA.
Expect a better effort on both sides of the ball from Los Angeles. This will be the teams third head to head meeting of the season.
Oklahoma City Thunder
The Oklahoma City Thunder are on one of their down streaks. Just when you think they have turned the corner, they seem to figure out a way to lose three or four in a row. The Thunder have lost three straight games, and were recently given a double digit home loss by the Pelicans. The Thunder shot 38.1 percent from the floor and 25 percent from three in the loss.
Oklahoma City has dominated the Lakers in head to head matchups this season. The Thunder have won both meeting by double digits. In the last win, Oklahoma City shot 48.4 percent from the floor and 34.3 percent from three point land in the win. Oklahoma City dominated the glass, out rebounding the Lakers, 59 to 35.
On the defensive side of the ball, the Thunder are one of the best teams in the NBA. OKC is allowing 102.7 points per game this year. Good enough to rank the Thunder 6th in points allowed this season. Look for another strong defensive effort from the Thunder at home.

Free Los Angeles Lakers vs. Oklahoma City Thunder NBA Prediction:
The Los Angeles Lakers are still a team trying to find a way. I’m not expect much from them on the road. Kyle Kuzma and Julius Randle should show up, but won be enough to beat the Thunder.
The Thunder have a chance to blow out the Lakers in OKC. Expect Russell Westbrook and Paul George to show up big at home. The Thunder are 19-8 at home this season
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Thunder -10
The Lakers might keep things close early, but won’t have enough fire power to beat the Thunder. Take OKC at home for the win.
