The return of Darius Bazley and Luguentz Dort helped keep the losing margin more respectable. They weren’t as fortunate versus the Wizards losing 129-109 which marked the seventh time during the losing streak they’ve lost by 20 or more points.
Bazley had a banner week setting a new career-best with 26 points and replicating that score in his next game. Versus the Wizards, he scored 20 points, grabbed six rebounds, and had five steals.
Rookie Theo Maledon also scored 20 points and dished eight assists. Dort returned from missing a few games due to a hip strain as he and reserve Isaiah Roby offered up identical 18 point, eight rebound efforts.
Moses Brown was hot for 20 games averaging 11.3 points and 11 rebounds but suffered major regression in his last four averaging 3.5 points and 5.5 rebounds. In his two games this week versus Washington, his cumulative results were two points and seven rebounds.
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (plantar fasciitis), Luguentz Dort (hip), Josh Hall (knee), Mike Muscala (ankle), Al Horford (shut down for season), and Gabriel Deck (not with team) are all out Monday.
Tough week for the 76ers who were without Ben Simmons and didn’t have Joel Embiid for the second game versus the Bucks. They’ve lost four games in a row including twice to Milwaukee.
Although the Nets overtook them for the top Eastern Conference seed they aren’t running away with it as they’ve had their own struggles.
Without the services of their top stars, the 76ers got rolled 132-94 in the second game versus the Bucks. The starters struggled with only Seth Curry (13 points) reaching double-figures.
The bench was more successful with Tyrese Maxey and Shake Milton each scoring 15 points. Dwight Howard was the most productive of the 76ers posting a double-double of 12 points and 12 rebounds.
Embiid (shoulder), Tobias Harris, (knee), Furkan Korkmaz (ankle), Paul Reed (health and safety protocols) are all questionable. Ben Simmons (illness) is out.
NBA Betting Trends:
- The Thunder are 7-3 in the teams last 10 head to head meetings
- The Thunder are 6-4 ATS in the last 10 head to head meetings
- Over/Under is 4-5-1 in the teams last 10 head to head meetings
Free Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Philadelphia 76ers NBA Prediction:
The injury report suggests the Thunder won’t have their top two players (SGA, Dort) while the 76ers could be missing two top players (Embiid, Harris) and Simmons is out.
Although numerous shorthanded teams have beaten the Thunder and they are on a 13-game losing streak they have more experience playing without their stars. Because Philly is also on a losing streak (4-games) and has their sights set on the East’s top seed it’s doubtful they rest both Embiid and Harris.
For that reason, I’m leaning to Philly winning but the Thunder covering the spread.
