Oklahoma City Thunder
OKC matched its longest winning streak of the season with a win at home against Washington on Thursday night. The Thunder overcame Bradley Beal’s shooting spree in the second half to escape with a nine-point win.
Minnesota lost to Golden State later that night, which pulled OKC even with Minnesota in the loss column in the division. Those two teams are also jockeying for important playoff positioning. They are mixed up with San Antonio in the mix for the next tier of contenders after Golden State and Houston.
The Timberwolves are projected to win more games from here on out because they have a more favorable schedule but there may not be a hotter team than the Thunder right now. OKC is on a six-gamer and is 15–0 when all five of their usual starters play in games since the calendar turned to December.
Paul George was kept out of the All-Star Game but he has just been fantastic for the Thunder. Not only is his game complimentary to Westbrook’s, but he seems to love playing alongside the reigning MVP. Scott Brooks called him the best two-way player in the league after the game on Thursday night. It feels more and more likely he’s going to want to make this a long-term stay in OKC.
Andre Drummond got his All-Star snub campaign off to a great start against Utah on Wednesday night, recording 30 points, 24 rebounds, six blocks, four assists and three steals. Unfortunately, the Pistons still lost to the Jazz in overtime.
Drummond’s dominance is about the only interesting thing going on with the Pistons these days. Luke Kennard played 26 minutes and scored ten points. He’s mildly intriguing as a young shooter but he’s a dime a dozen, it feels like, in the NBA these days.
The Pistons have lost six in a row. They’re still only five games back in the division, which Cleveland is assuring remains wide open. I’d bet Detroit falls below Chicago before it overtakes the Cavs, though.

Free Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Detroit Pistons NBA Prediction: OKC escapes with a win.
I don’t think it will be easy for the Thunder. But OKC is the better team playing a lot better basketball. I see both teams staying under 100 in a defensive struggle featuring Adams vs. Drummond.
