Oklahoma City just keeps on rolling. They’ve started another winning streak and will look to push it to 5 when they take on the Denver Nuggets Tuesday night.
The Thunder will begin a stretch of 3 games in 4 nights when they start things off in Denver.
Denver got their 3rd win in 4 games on Sunday as they exchanged basket after basket with Indiana in a 129-126 game.
After suffering a rare loss against Portland back on the 10th, the Thunder bounced back in a big way.
Oklahoma City has ran off 4 straight wins and have a very favorable schedule ahead of them as they try to make it 5 in a row. The Thunder took it to the Heat on Sunday as they ran off a 25 point victory.
Russell Westbrook recorded a triple double, which was his 2nd straight one as he continues to put together an impressive resume. Westbrook finished with 13 points, 15 assists, and 10 rebounds. Westbrook has made a living on triple doubles as he’s put up 5 this season and now 24 in his career.
Oklahoma City took out Denver 122-112 back on 12/27. The Thunder shot 57.8% from the field and Westbrook fell one rebound shy of another triple double.
While it’s going to be a long shot and take a lot of work, the Nuggets are slowly creeping back into the relevance side of things.
Denver has won 4 of 6 and 3 of 4 and had their best offensive performance of the season as they racked up 129 points in a 129-126 win over Indiana.
The Nuggets erased a 12 point half time deficit and used a 45 point 4th quarter to propel themselves to a win. Danilo Gallinari and Will Barton played the biggest roles in the win as they combined for 44 points and 10 rebounds.
While they still managed to grab a win on Sunday, the defensive struggles the Nuggets are enduring are a major concern. Denver has allowed 105.1 points per game at home this season. It’s really been all or nothing for them defensively here in the month of January. They’ve allowed as many as that 126 on Sunday all the way down to 74 against Minnesota.
