Monday night, November 19th brings you a Western Conference NBA macthup as the Oklahoma City Thunder travel to the capital of California to take on the Sacramento Kings live from the Golden 1 Center. Oklahoma City is coming off a 10 point win over Phoenix on Saturday night, and the Kings were 20 point losers to the Rockets on the road.
Oklahoma City has won six out of the last 10 meetings between these two teams, but the Kings were the winners in the last game back on October, 21st, by a score of 131-120. That game was played in Oklahoma City.
Oklahoma City Thunder
The Thunder have now won three out of their last four games despite being without their injured superstar Russell Westbrook. They have definitely turned things around since they were without Westbrook to start the season, when they dropped their first four games.
Oklahoma City let up a bit near the end of Saturday nights game in Phoenix, after leading by nearly 20 points most of the second half, but they had huge performances by Paul George (32 pts), and Steven Adams (26 pts). Both players ended up with double-doubles in that game as well.
Despite being out shot by the Suns from the field, and from deep, the Thunder really made up ground at the free throw line, nailing 27 of 32 opportunities for a percentage of 84.4%. They also cleaned up the glass nicely, out-rebounding the Suns 62-42.
Paul George has stepped up rather nicely in Westbrook’s absence, and is now leading the team in scoring with 24.1 points per game. Steven Adams is the teams leading rebounder with 10.1 per game, and Russell Westbrook is leading the team in assists at 8.9 per game.
Westbrook is listed as out for Monday’s game, as is SF Andre Roberson who is listed as out indefinitely. SG Alex Abrines and SF Terrance Ferguson are both listed as questionable for this game.
The Kings have lost three out of their last four games, and the road doesn’t appear to get any better anytime soon. After this game with the Thunder, they go on the road to play the Jazz and the Warriors, before coming back home to take on Utah once again. This all of a sudden becomes a must win game for Sacramento.
Buddy Hield led all Kings in scoring with 23 points in 30 minutes in a game where Sacramento had plenty of help in scoring off the bench. The Kings shot well from the field, and the line, 45.1% and 75%, but really struggled from deep at 31.4%. That number with have to improve if this team wants to play with a run and gun team like Oklahoma City.
The only player on the Kings roster on the injury list is C Kosta Koufos who is listed as questionable. His presence will definitely help even in a limited role as the Kings were out-rebounded last time out by Houston.

Free Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Sacramento Kings NBA Prediction:
The Thunder have been on too much of a roll lately to discount them in this game on the road against Sacramento, even in the banged up state that they are in right now.
The Kings are definitely one of the up and coming teams in the Western Conference, but they are still a long way off from being a contender. Don’t let that first matchup fool you.
