*Editor’s Note: Statistics and rankings are current as of this writing, on Saturday, April 1st. Numbers may vary slightly entering games on Sunday, April 2nd.
Ladder positions change on a daily basis in the West with so many teams jumbled together. Saturday the Clippers’ loss meant the Warriors moved up to fifth and are 1.5 games back of the Suns for the fourth seed.
Phoenix can’t catch the third-place Kings so their goal will be retaining the fourth seed and home court. LA is still within striking distance two games back.
Although the Pelicans (-2.5), Lakers (-3.0), Wolves (-3.5), and Thunder (-4.5) are technically also chasing Phoenix with just three to five games left on their schedules it’s unlikely they’ll challenge for fourth.
Phoenix averages 113.5 points per game ranking 18th while shooting 46.7% from the field and 37.6% from the perimeter ranking 23rd and seventh overall.
Defensively opponents score 111.5 points ranking fourth-best. Meanwhile, they limit foes to 46.6% from the field and 35.7% from the perimeter ranking sixth and 12th respectively.
To summarize the injury report…
- No injuries reported.
After winning eight of 10 the Thunder has stumbled losing four of their last six matches. For a team that’s overachieved the most frustrating part of the equation is OKC tends to lose to the lower-tier teams.
Subsequently, instead of taking advantage of a weaker schedule, losses to the Lakers, Pacers, and Hornets allowed other teams to surge ahead of them.
Offensively, the Thunder scores 117.4 points per game ranking fifth while shooting 46.6% from the field and 35.7% from deep ranking 24th and 18th respectively.
Meanwhile, OKC limits opponents to 116.4 points per game ranking 19th with them shooting 47.3% from the field and 36.1% from deep ranking 15th and 16th respectively.
To summarize the injury report…
- Kenrich Williams SF (OUT for season —wrist: scapholunate ligament surgery)
- Chet Holmgren, PF (OUT for season— foot)

Free Phoenix Suns vs. OKC Thunder NBA Prediction:
Since leaving the Thunder in free agency Kevin Durant has only been active in four return visits and is 3-1 in those matches. He’s missed more games than he’s played even in the years when he wasn’t out rehabbing from his Achilles tear.
Overall he’s 9-5 against the Thunder no doubt having extra inspiration to beat his drafting team who didn’t take kindly to him leaving. Meanwhile, the new Thunder cornerstone Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is trying to lead his club into the postseason as they cling to the 10th seed.
