It’s a Western Conference showdown this Wednesday as the Oklahoma City Thunder travel across the Mississippi River to take on the Memphis Grizzlies.
Both teams will be on the second night of a back-to-back, so fatigue could be a deciding factor in this one. The Thunder have taken two of the previous three meetings this year.
The Thunder have struggled as of late. They have lost two in a row including a 113-101 home loss to the Charlotte Hornets on Sunday. They will have a chance to turn the tide as they host the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday. The Thunder are currently in 6th place in the West.
The Grizzlies have been up and down lately.
They suffered an inexplicable 108-103 loss to the last place Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday. The first game of their back-to-back will be a road game against the San Antonio Spurs.
Memphis is right behind the Thunder, in 7th place in the Western Conference.
Oklahoma City Thunder
The Thunder seem to have been knocked back down to Earth, after a very impressive finish to the month of March. Before heading into their matchup with the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday, the Thunder have lost two in a row, both at home.
The Thunder score an average of 106.8 points per game which ranks 11th in the league. They rank 1st in rebounding with 46.3 but 24th in assists with only 21 per contest.
Defensively, the Thunder allow 106.1 points per game which ranks 17th in scoring D.
Russell Westbrook continues to put up mind-blowing numbers, averaging 31.9 points, 10.6 rebounds and 10.4 assists per game. Victor Oladipo contributes 16.4 points, and Enes Kanter adds 14.4 points and 6.8 rebounds a night.
It is hard to get a read on how good the Grizzlies are going to be going into playoff season. They have been up and down, mostly down, for the last month, but they seemed to have gotten back on track at the end of March.
Then they lost on the road to the Lakers, and the questions are raised again. They will have a tough test on the road against the San Antonio Spurs on Tuesday before this game.
