With the potential for 18 first-round draft picks getting conveyed over the next seven seasons no one would blame the current squad if they raised the white flag once games get out of hand.
There have been double-digit loss margins but those types of games aren’t occuring as frequently as preseason projections. Moreover, the Thunder have performed particularly well on the road as one of the top five road teams.
That could all change dramatically with their current five-game road trip that began with a loss in Denver, follows with the two Clippers game this weekend then moves to Portland and finishes in Phoenix.
In the loss to the Nuggets, Luguentz Dort led the way with 20 points while Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (14), Darius Bazley (12), and Isaiah Roby (10) were the other double-figure contributors.
Al Horford has missed the last three games welcoming child number four to the family and is out Friday.
Josh Hall (health and safety), Ty Jerome (ankle), and Trevor Ariza (personal) are all out indefinitely.
Los Angeles Clippers
The Clippers have won five games in a row and seem to have all pistons firing. Paul George who struggled in the bubble vowed to make a diffrerence this season and through the early stages of the season is delivering.
His per game averages are all higher than last season with 24.4 points, 6.2 rebounds, 5.6 assists, and 1.2 steals per game. Moreover, his perimeter efficiency is blistering shooting 50.5 percent on 7.8 atttempts per game.I
In the victory over the Kings on Wednesday it was Kawhi Leonard who led the way with 32 points, three rebounds, five assists, and six steals.
Ivica Zubac chipped in a double-double of 11 points and 12 rebounds. George (19 points) and Nicolas Batum (11 points) were the other double-figure contributors.

Free Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Los Angeles Clippers NBA Prediction:
With the Clippers rolling along this would seem like an obvious pick but two factors give me pause.
First, the Thunder raises their compete level versus the upper echelon. And, second the Clippers haven’t proven they won’t underestimate or play down to the competition.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Clippers ATS
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander knows the PG13 trade to LA never happens if he’s not included and will be motivated to remind the Clippers of what they gave up
Still, the Clippers will get the win. The question is whether they’ll cover the spread.
