The Oklahoma City Thunder are looking to get back on track as they travel to Colorado and face the Denver Nuggets. The Thunder recently took a road loss to the Washington Wizards. Oklahoma City had won eight in a row prior to the loss. The Denver Nuggets are looking to make the playoffs in the West this season, and have won three of their last five games
The last time the Thunder and Nuggets took the court against each other, was this season. The teams have faced each other twice this year. They have split the season series, and are tied at 1-1.
Oklahoma City Thunder
The Oklahoma City Thunder suffered a disappointing loss to the Wizards, 102-96. The games were tight throughout, with the Wizards pulling away in the final two minutes for the win. A large part of the Thunder loss was how Russell Westbrook played.
Westbrook shot 5 of 18 from the floor, finishing with 13 points. The loss also came against a Wizards team that was without All NBA guard John Wall. Seems like Westbrook would have been better if Wall had been playing. Paul George led the Thunder with 28 points in the loss.
If Oklahoma City is going to get back to winning, they must play better than they did last time against the Nuggets. The Thunder got the win at home, 95-94. Russell Westbrook led the Thunder with 38 points. Oklahoma City shot 48 percent from the floor and 29 percent from three-point land in the win.
On the defensive side of the court, the Thunder are one of the best defensive teams in the NBA, allowing 102 points per game this year. Good enough to rank them 4th in points allowed this season. Look for Oklahoma City to smother Denver at the Pepsi Center.
The Thunder are still a top five team in the Western conference in my opinion. Expect Oklahoma City to get another big game from Paul George.
The Denver Nuggets seem to keep themselves close to making the playoffs every year. Last season, ironically Russell Westbrook hit a three at the buzzer to send the Thunder to the playoffs, and eliminate Denver from making the postseason. If Denver is going to make a run at the playoffs the second half of the season, they must beat the Thunder.
The Nuggets recently took a tumble on the road to San Antonio, 106-104. Despite the loss, Denver is still 3-2 over their last five games. Denver lost the recent matchup against Oklahoma City. They shot 43 percent from the field and 32 percent from three in the loss. Look for the Nuggets to try to get a team win. Denver have five players in double figures the last matchup against Oklahoma City.
If Denver is going to be a playoff team, they must play better defense. The team is allowing 105.6 points per game this season. Good enough for 15th in the NBA this year. Denver has held Oklahoma City to 95 points, and 94 points in their two head to head matchups this year.
