Sunday, January 10th finds the Oklahoma City Thunder playing the Brooklyn Nets for the first time in the 2020-21 campaign. It could also be the first time Kevin Durant faces his drafting team this time sporting his Nets jersey.
The Nets last game featured a loss to the Grizzlies while the Thunder captured a victory over the Knicks.
Last season, due to the coronavirus pandemic the teams only played on a single occasion that the Thunder won extending their streak to four victories over the Nets. The Thunder holds the all-time record winning 58 of the 91 matches.
Oklahoma City Thunder
Through eight games the Thunder isn’t performing like a typical tanking team. To wit, OKC boasts a .500 record with all four of their victories coming on the road.
This week the Thunder also produced their first consecutive wins of the season. While the pandemic and truncated offseason have affected some elite teams who’ve stumbled out of the gate the Thunder seems to relish their role of underdog.
One thing is certain this predominantly young squad is competitive and won’t just mail in games if they fall behind. In the win over the Knicks, two of the young core stepped up to ensure the win.
Franchise cornerstone Shai Gilgeous-Alexander led the way with a double-double of 25 points and 10 rebounds plus seven rebounds. Native New Yorker, Hamidou Diallo also notched a double-double of 23 points and 11 rebounds.
Al Horford was the only other player to reach double-digits chipping in with 15 points in the low scoring affair.
Mike Muscala took a shot to the ribs last game but is considered probable for Sunday. Ty Jerome (ankle) and Trevor Ariza (personal) are both out indefinitely.
The loss to the Grizzlies was tough but without either superstar in the game, it was a more even playing field as Memphis was also missing their top two players.
The Thunder aren’t likely to face the same roster as the Nets group who played in Memphis. It’s expected Kevin Durant will return if his COVID-19 test is negative again while Steve Nash was uncertain about the status of Irving.
In the loss to the Grizzlies, Caris LeVert took full advantage of being back in the starting lineup registering 43 points, six assists, and five rebounds. Taurean Prince (16), Joe Harris (13), and Jarrett Allen (12) were the other double-figure contributors.
Tyler Johnson missed the last two games while following the NBA health and safety protocols and won’t play Sunday.
Spencer Dinwiddie (knee) is out for the season while Nicolas Claxton (knee) has no definitive return date.

Free Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Brooklyn Nets NBA Prediction:
This is a bit like shooting darts blind since the presence of Durant and Irving would make a significant difference. And, as noted OKC’s four wins came on the road.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Thunder +9.5
Durant loves to remind the Thunder of what they lost but OKC is playing freely given their season objective to tank. That should equate to a Nets win but the Thunder keeping it close.
