Well, something has got to give tonight with the 3-0 Clippers hosting the 3-0 Thunder. OKC has not skipped a beat without Kevin Durant, as Russell Westbrook has been lights out so far on the season.
The Clippers are off to a great start and in their last 2 wins they have won by double digits.
In their last games the Thunder beat the L.A. Lakers 113-96 and the Clippers beat the Portland Trailblazers 116-98.
Oklahoma City Thunder
This season the Thunder rank 5th in the league in points per game and 12th in opponents’ points per game.
To say that Westbrook has been lights out in the young season may be a tad of an understatement. In 3 games he is averaging a triple-double at 38.7 ppg, 12.3 rpg, and 11.7 assists per game.
How sick has he been? Well, he ranks 1st in scoring, 2nd in assists, and tied for 6th in rebounding.
In the win over the Lakers in the last game Westbrook went for another triple-double and for the game OKC shot 47.4% from the floor while holding L.A. to 40.2% shooting.
In the Lakers win Westbrook and newcomer Victor Oladipo combined for 53 points.
The Thunder have 4 players that are averaging at least 12 points per game.
The Clippers have a star C in DeAndre Jordan, but he will have his hands full tonight with the 2 OKC centers of Steven Adams and Enes Kanter, who are each averaging over 12 ppg and have combined to average 15.7 boards per game.
The Thunder did win their only road game of the season, but it came against the Philadelphia 76ers.
The Clippers rank a decent 11th in the league in points per game, but they have really been solid on D ranking 3rd in opponents’ points allowed.
L.A. shot 50% from the field in their last game facing the Suns and held Phoenix to 41.7% shooting.
4 of 5 Clippers’ starters scored at least 12 points in the win over the Suns with Jordan, Blake Griffin, and Chris Paul combining for 64 points.
The Clippers are totally balanced and have 6 players that are averaging in double figures. Griffin and Paul are each averaging at least 20 ppg and Jordan ranks tied for 3rd in the league in rebounds per game.
The Thunder have been getting it done on offense this season, but their D may be more important in this game with all the scoring options the Clippers have.
The Clippers are 2-0 at home this season.
