Tuesday, January 20th, the Denver Nuggets will host the Oklahoma City Thunder as the teams meet for the first time this season.
Last season, the squads played three times with the Nuggets winning two out of three. The Thunder holds the all-time record having won 99 matches of the 184 played.
Oklahoma City Thunder
The Thunder have shocked some squads by winning as much as they have. Prior to season start, VP Sam Presti referred to this next stage of the franchise as the ‘resiliency era’
At the time it was assumed Presti meant the team would need to learn how to deal with tanking and losing until they conveyed a slew of their draft picks.
But, head coach Mark Daigneault told the media after the Bulls win: “We aren’t trying to build a resilient culture, we are trying to continue a resilient culture.”
If that’s true then perhaps this Thunder squad does believe they can be in the mix for the play-in tournament. I still think moves will be made at the trade deadline (George Hill, Al Horford) but we’ll have to see if OKC can keep winning in the interim.
In the victory over the Bulls, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander led the way with a double-double of 33 points and 10 assists plus five rebounds. Balanced scoring was the key as eight players scored eight or more points.
Luguentz Dort scored 21 with eight rebounds and the quartet of Isaiah Roby (14), Kenrich Williams (14), Mike Muscala (11), and Theo Maledon (10) were the other double-figure contributors.
Horford missed the last two games and is questionable for Tuesday. Ty Jerome (ankle) remains out indefinitely.
Nikola Jokic continues to impress averaging a triple-double this season and came up one rebound shy of reaching that marker in their recent match with 35 points, 13 assists and nine rebounds.
If the Nuggets were winning more Jokic would be in the conversation for MVP this season.
Jamal Murray got the better of Donovan Mitchell as the pair renewed their rivalry and the Canadian produced a line of 30 points, four assists, and five rebounds.
The problem was Mitchell’s Jazz got the upper hand winning the game.
In some of the Nuggets losses, the defense has been the issue, but in the loss to Utah, it was tied more directly to closing out offensively and the Jazz knowing it would be either Jokic or Murray taking the shot.
That pair should be getting some help as early as this week when Michael Porter Jr. returns. He’s missed the last nine games and won’t be back for this match although the team is hopeful he’ll return later this week.
Greg Whittington has a left knee sprain that will keep him out indefinitely.

Free Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Denver Nuggets NBA Prediction:
As much as the Thunder has feasted on the road this season Denver isn’t an easy venue given the altitude. And while the Nuggets lost their last game they were 5-2 prior to that with one of those losses occurring in overtime.
