This game features a strong Thunder team going up against the Kings in Sacramento.
The Thunder are riding a 3 game winning streak while Sacramento has lost 3 of 4.
Oklahoma City Thunder
Can Russell Westbrook keep this historic pace up? 40 games into the season he has 18 triple doubles and the Thunder will be a scary team to face in the playoffs.
Are we seeing Russell Westbrook at his peak? To put up a triple double in 45% of your games is unheard of in today’s NBA, and the All World point guard should be #1 or #2 in the MVP voting heading into the All Star break next month.
In the Thunder’s win against Memphis in their last game, Westbrook scored 24 points, had 13 assists and 12 rebounds, but shot just 6-19 from the floor (0-7 from 3 point range).
For Westbrook to lead the Thunder without clogging up the offense he will either need to shoot better from behind the arc or attack the rim more.
Facing against his UCLA brother Darren Collinson I expect Westbrook to dominate this game and get his 19th triple double, while also scoring 30 points in the process.
Since coming back from his injury Victor Oladipo is averaging 16 points per game in 7 contests. His scoring won’t slow down against the Kings and I expect him to put up 20 points to go along with 5 assists and 4 steals.
Steven Adams put up 22 points and 5 rebounds two games ago against a strong Bulls front line that includes Taj Gibson, and faces the ultra talented but mercurial Demarcus Cousins in this game.
Expect Adams to score 15 points and get 11 rebounds against the All Star center.
Where Adams provides a lot of defensive help, Enes Kanter can score as well as any big man in the NBA not named Davis or Cousins. He won’t have Cousins on him a lot in this game so expect 14 points from Kanter.
The Kings are a poorly run franchise and have been for a number of years. They are struggling to win games and are on the verge of trading their two best players in a hope of rebuilding for the future.
A team in such disarray surely can’t be counted on to defeat a championship contender right?
Even with all the technical fouls and ejections, Demarcus Cousins is still one of the league’s best players. In th Kings win against Detroit Tuesday night he had 24 points, 13 rebounds and 6 assists.
He’s got a double double in 3 straight games and will make this 4 in a row as I expect him to put up 30 points and 11 boards against the OKC front line.
Rudy Gay is the other talented Kings player on the trading block, but to his credit he hasn’t let the rumors affect his play while in Sacramento.
He had a poor shooting night versus the Pistons, dropping just 11 points on 3-11 shooting. He should bounce back and get 20 points and 7 rebounds in this one.
Darren Collinson has been steady at point guard but won’t be able to do match with ultra athletic Westbrook guarding him. He won’t reach double digit points or get more than 4 assists tonight.
