Oklahoma City Thunder
As we head towards the home stretch of the NBA season, Oklahoma City is winning the games against weaker teams that they are supposed to win. Paved by Russell Westbrook, the Thunder should easily secure a playoff spot heading into April.
Westbrook continues to play at a historic level, averaging a triple this season. He notched his 30th triple double of the year against the Jazz. He put up 43 points on 13-28 from the floor (6-9 from 3 point range), grabbed 11 rebounds and dished out 10 assists.
The downside of Westbrook’s wild play is that he commits a large amount of turnovers and had 8 against Utah.
Westbrook faces Eric Bledsoe, and has dominated the first two matchups of the season, getting 51 points in the first matchup, and 26 points, 22 assists and 11 rebounds in the second. He will have another excellent performance.
Victor Oladipo has not played in 2 weeks, and will be a gametime decision for the coaching staff. If he does not get the start Alex Abrines will get the nod.
Steven Adams is a very solid two way center, but he struggled against Derrick Favors and the Jazz. He scored just 2 points (1-6 from the floor) and grabbed 6 rebounds.
This will be a tough matchup with Tyson Chandler but Adams should get back to his season averages of 12 points and 8 rebounds.
Enes Kanter has been very consistent the last two games for the Thunder. He had 15 points and 9 rebounds against Utah, and it was his third straight game of 7 rebounds or more. Another good game should be in store for Kanter.
The Suns are headed towards the lottery, and are clearly rebuilding for the future. Eric Bledsoe is one of the bright young spots on the team.
Although Phoenix is 1-3 in their last 4 games, Bledsoe is averaging 18 points and 10 assists during this stretch. He is a dynamic guard who struggles with defending athletic guards.
Can he slow down Russell Westbrook? I don’t think it will happen but Bledsoe will have a good night shooting the ball and get 20 points.
T.J. Warren will provide good scoring from the small forward position for Phoenix. He was very good against Memphis, scoring 17 points and grabbing 6 boards against the Grizzlies talented front court. Warren has been on a tear and should get 17 points and 11 rebounds in this one.
Devin Booker’s hot scoring came to a crashing halt against Memphis, as he scored just 9 points on 3-11 shooting.
