Last season, the squads played three times with the Thunder sweeping the series. The Thunder hold the all-time record having won 86 of the 123 played
Oklahoma City Thunder
This young Oklahoma City Thunder team just simply doesn’t understand they are supposed to be tanking.
Entering Sunday’s matinee although the Rockets were mired in a 19-game losing streak with four Thunder starters sidelined there was the belief this would be the game Houston ended the losing streak.
Joining typical starter Lu Dort were rookies Theo Maledon and Aleksej Pokusevski, sophomore Isaiah Roby, and two-way contract Moses Brown.
The youngsters proved this Thunder crew having winning DNA as they became the youngest starter lineup in history to register a victory.
Six Thunder players registered double-digit scoring led by Dort with 23 who also blocked John Wall to maintain the lead at game end.
Brown delivered a double-double of 13 points and 14 rebounds while Roby offered a complete-game effort punctuated by 18 points, eight rebounds, two assists, and a block.
Al Horford should be back for this match after resting in Houston but Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (shoulder), Darius Bazley (shoulder), George Hill (thumb), and Josh Hall (knee) are all expected to remain out.
With the trade deadline this Thursday, what the Minnesota Timberwolves do is very much up in the air. While they should be a club selling any players who don’t fit the future timeline they are rumored to be looking to buy.
It’s a catch-22 because they also know Karl-Anthony Towns has to be satiated or the Wolves risk him becoming the next superstar demanding a trade.
With so few big men possessing his skills, there would be multiple teams eager to add him and build a franchise around him.
Part of the issue is the Wolves haven’t had the opportunity to get a true feel for how their team fits based on Towns early wrist injury and bout with COVID-19 followed by D’Angelo Russell’s injury. Because there was no overlap the duo has played in only four matches together this season.
Jarrett Culver (toe) and Jordan McLaughlin (safety protocols) are both day to day while D’Angelo Russell remains out healing from surgery to his leg.
