The Oklahoma City Thunder travel to the Mexico City to face the Brooklyn Nets tonight. The Thunder have one of the best starting lineups (on paper) since they had Durant and Harden along side Westbrook. The Brooklyn Nets are five games under .500 ball this season, and most recently beat the Atlanta Hawks, 110-90.
Last season, the Thunder and Nets took the court against each other twice. Oklahoma City swept the season series, 2-0. Tonight, expect the same results as last season for Brooklyn.
Oklahoma City Thunder
The Oklahoma City Thunder have played underwhelming basketball to start the season. The team is one game under .500 right now, and looking for a win in Mexico City. Most recently, the Thunder beat the Jazz in Utah, 100-94. Tonight, look for the Thunder to eye four in a row.
Aside from the Thunder being 11-12 this season, Oklahoma City might start clicking at the right time. On their three game win streak, the Thunder have beaten Minnesota, San Antonio and Utah. All three win came in Oklahoma City. Westbrook if and company get it going away from home, the team will be a postseason contender.
In the most recent win against the Jazz, Oklahoma City shot 48 percent from the field and 22 percent from three point land in the 100-94 win. Westbrook led the team in scoring with 35 points. Paul George added 21 points and Stephen Adams dropped 20 for the Thunder.
Aside from their loosing record, the Thunder have been one of the best defenses in the NBA. Oklahoma City is allowing 98 points per game this year. Good enough for third in the NBA right now.
As the season gets older, I still believe the Thunder can turn it around and be a top five team in the west this year.
The Brooklyn Nets are a bad team again this season. Currently five games under .500 on the year, the Nets are looking like a team that will find themselves tanking soon. Brooklyn is 3-2 over their last five games and most recently beat Atlanta, 110-90.
Atlanta is one of the worst teams in the NBA this year, so there is no need to get excited about the most recent 20 point win. The Nets shot 48 percent from the floor against the Hawks. Rookie Caris LeVert led the team in scoring with 17 points off the bench.
On the defensive side of the ball, the Nets are allowing 112 points per game this year. Good enough for 29th in the NBA so far this season.

Free Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Brooklyn Nets NBA Prediction:
This game has blowout potential, but I don’t see that happening. The Thunder are a talented bunch, but lack depth on the bench. The Nets … well are the Nets, and will have their hands full against Oklahoma City.
Brooklyn will struggle to score in this game. The way Oklahoma City is playing defense right now, the loss of D’Angelo Russell will hurt the Nets in this matchup.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Thunder -7.5
