The Thunder and Rockets meet this Sunday in NBA action at the Toyota Center.
The Oklahoma City Thunder have won 5 from their last 10 games. They’re averaging 106 points an 44.8% shooting and allowing 112.2 points on 46.5% shooting. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is averaging 23.5 points and 4.8 rebounds while Al Horford is averaging 14.3 points and 6.7 rebounds. Luguentz Dort is the third double-digit scorer and Darius Bazley is grabbing 7.5 rebounds.
As a team, OKC are allowing 34.9% shooting from the deep and are grabbing 44.3 rebounds per game.
Meanwhile, the Houston Rockets need a win as they have lost the last 19 games. They’re averaging 106.7 points on 43.3% shooting and allowing 113.7 points on 46.9% shooting. Christian Wood is averaging 21.7 points and 10.2 rebounds while Victor Oladipo is averaging 21 points and 4.9 assists. John Wall is the third double-digit scorer and Kevin Porter Jr. is grabbing three rebounds.
As a team, the Rockets are shooting 32.5% from beyond the arc and are grabbing 42.4 rebounds per game.
The OKC are not a good basketball team and they lose on the road by 4.1 points, but being a underdog against the Rockets is a joke. Houston have lost the last 19 games (franchise record) and they lose at home by an average of 8.2 points. I’ll go with OKC tonight.
