The Thunder look to get back in the win column, after dropping 3 straight games here on Friday night.
The opponent, the Denver Nuggets, who look to hang around in the West and stay healthy this year.
Oklahoma City Thunder
The Thunder started the season off at 6-1 and looked as if they weren’t going to miss a beat without Kevin Durant.
However, that is now just a memory.
The Thunder have dropped 3 straight games after the Kings took it to them 116-101 and now they’ll look to avoid going below the .500 mark here on Friday night against the Nuggets.
This Oklahoma City team knows they need Russell Westbrook to go off every single night, but he eventually is going to need some help.
Westbrook is averaging an NBA best 31.8 points per game and fell just short of his 6th triple double of the season last time out.
Enes Kanter and Steven Adams are helping the cause inside, averaging double digit points per game, but they’ll have to step things up on the defensive end. The Kings dominated the Thunder in the paint last game, something both Kanter and Adams simply cannot allow as they are the main source of height on this OKC team.
What has plagued the Denver Nuggets over the recent years has been injuries. This team just can’t find a way to stay healthy.
Denver may be without Danilo Gallinari for a 2nd straight game, as he continues to battle a thigh injury. What makes matters worse is that the Nuggets cannot seem to figure out what exactly is wrong with the thigh.
Should he miss out on Friday, this is a huge blow offensively for Denver.
Gallinari leads the team with 16.8 points per game. This is a similar story to last season, where he just couldn’t stay healthy.
Denver hasn’t beaten the Thunder since back in 2014.
