The Oklahoma City Thunder look to get back into the win column this Friday as they take on the Detroit Pistons at the Little Caesars Arena in Detroit.
Oklahoma City Thunder
The Thunder are clearly looking forward to next season, as they look for the pieces they want to keep on this roster going into next year giving some of their bench players plenty of minutes to give their coaches and management some tape.
That unfortunately has led to the Thunder being entirely noncompetitive as of late losing their last 8 games in a row and with the Detroit Pistons coming into this game with plenty of motivation they may very well extend that losing streak to 9 here on Friday.
Oklahoma City Thunder’s last game was particularly embarrassing, as they played absolutely no defense whatsoever giving up 147 points to the Golden State Warriors in a game they lost by 38.
With the starting rotation they are going with here it is also very tough to know who is going to step up here with so many of their guys being so inexperienced or just lacking the skill to be able to take over a game, so it is tough to see this one going well for them.
Despite the Pistons being way more motivated then their opponents on Friday they still have lost their last three games, so I see the Pistons showing up here with their A-game, as they will not want to extend that streak to 4 against a team like OKC.
The Pistons did lose their last three, but those losses might be at least slightly forgivable, as they came against the likes of the Clippers and Trailblazers who are both legit contenders in the Western Conference.
Their last loss was against the Clippers by only 2 points, so they could have easily pulled off a huge upset in that game with their turnovers being a worrying point turning it over 5 more times then the Clippers in that game and that will represent an easy way they could lose this game if they are careless once again with the basketball.
Look for Jerami Grant to play a big role once again here, as the guy has been putting up huge numbers all year long and he was the main offensive presence for this team last time out putting up 28 points.
Free Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Detroit Pistons NBA Prediction:
I really do think the OKC Thunder have packed it in, and the roster they are currently rolling out there is almost like a G-League level team, so I am all over the Detroit Pistons in this spot, as I am confident they will be able to win this game by a double digit margin.
I do expect a big one from Grant as previously stated, with the Thunder having no answer for his powerful play on the interior and that will be the key that opens up everything else for this team offensively.
