Its a key Western conference showdown on Friday night at Talking Stick Resort Arena. The Oklahoma City Thunder continue their four game road trip when they take on the Phoenix Suns.
These two teams are heading in completely different directions. This is the fourth meeting of the year between the two teams. Oklahoma City has won two of the previous three match ups.
Each team has scored at least 100 points in each of the previous match ups.
If the Phoenix Suns were smart they would try and lose every game form this point forward.
After the Lakers beat the Spurs on Wednesday night that gave the Suns sole possession of the second worst record in the NBA, which means if the season ended today they would have the second best chance at the number one pick in the draft.
The Suns come into this game really struggling. They have lost ten games in a row and not too many of them have really even been that close. In their last game they lost to the Warriors 120-111. That game was actually a lot closer then the final score indicated.
The Suns problem all season has been on the defensive side of the floor. They have given up 113.3 points per game and opponents have shot 46.8 percent from the field.
To win this game two things need to happen, they need to play good defense, and they have to want to win. They really need to play some good defense and try to find a way to slow down Westbrook.
If they don’t do that they are going to have a tough time having any shot in this game. They also need to want to win. It will be interesting to see if the coaching staff instructs them to tank this game.
Oklahoma City Thunder
Right now Oklahoma City is all but locked in for their playoff positioning so right now it’s all about getting hot for the playoffs.
They come into this game having won their last two games over teams that will be in the playoffs. In their last game they beat Memphis 103-100.
One thing that could be beneficial for the Thunder is if they could get Westbrook a game or two of rest. He has carried this team all year and they need him fresh for the playoffs.
For the Thunder to win this game they just need to play their game. They need to really attack early on the offensive end and try to push the pace of play.
