The Thunder had a hiccup for a few games struggling losing 4 of 5 games, but they have now won 2 in a row including coming off an impressive win over the L.A. Clippers.
It’s the same old song and dance for the Timberwolves, who have lost 5 of their last 6 games including their last 2. Minnesota has the 5th fewest wins in the league and after 65 games they have still not got to 10 road wins.
The Timberwolves defense has been torched as of late, which is not good facing a high scoring Thunder team.
In their last games the Thunder beat the L.A. Clippers 120-108 and the Timberwolves lost to the San Antonio Spurs 116-91.
The Timberwolves only rank 24th in the league giving up an average of 105.7 ppg and in their last 6 games they have given up an average of 115 ppg.
Minnesota ranks 20th in the league in scoring, but at least their offense has been decent as of late minus their last game.
The 2 leading scorers for the team in Andrew Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns have been playing solid as of late, well at least scoring wise, but they are not getting much help.
The T-Wolves have young talent, but if their D struggles again in this road game they will have to light up the scoreboard to have any chance at the W.
This season the Timberwolves are 9-23 on the road and they have lost their last 3 games away from the Land of 10,000 Lakes.
In the win over the Clippers the OKC star duo of Kevin Durant and Russell Wilson, who went for a triple-double in the game, combined to score 55 points.
The OKC Thunder rank 2nd in the league in scoring and 18th in opponents’ points allowed.
Durant and Westbrook will get their points, but Minnesota has to keep them from having a solid shooting night and they need to keep the OKC supporting case, such as Serge Ibaka, from having solid scoring efforts.
This season the Thunder are 26-8 at home.
