The Oklahoma City Thunder travel to the Toyota Center to take on the Houston Rockets on Sunday night. Here’s a Thunder vs Rockets Prediction.

Oklahoma City Thunder

The Oklahoma City Thunder have been in great shape as they’ve won seven of their last nine games overall and they will be eager to build on their current four-game win streak after making light work of the Wizards in a 147-106 win over the Wizards on Friday. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander led the team with 30 points, seven rebounds and nine assists, Chet Holmgren added 25 points with 10 rebounds while Josh Giddey chipped in with 12 points, seven rebounds and three assists. As a team, the Thunder shot 59 percent from the field and an efficient 20 of 40 from the 3-point line as they stormed out of the gates and always looked in control after exploding for 80 points in the first half.

Houston Rockets

Meanwhile, the Houston Rockets have been in a real funk as they’ve lost six of their last eight games overall, but they will be aiming to build some momentum after outlasting the Suns in a 114-110 home win on Friday. Fred VanVleet led the team with 23 points and five assists, Jabari Smith Jr led the team with 22 points, 16 rebounds and three assists while Alperen Sengun chipped in with 17 points, 12 rebounds and four assists. As a team, the Rockets shot just 39 percent from the field and 15 of 45 from the 3-point line as they took control of the game with a 37-point explosion in the second quarter to turn a 16-point deficit into a 14-point lead.

Houston Rockets Team Facts

  • The home team has won each of the Rockets’ last nine games.
  • The home team has covered the spread in each of the Rockets’ last six games.
  • Eight of the last nine night games between the Thunder and Rockets at Toyota Center have gone UNDER the total points line.

Oklahoma City Thunder Team Facts

  • The Thunder have lost each of their last six night games at Toyota Center.
  • The Thunder have failed to cover the spread in eight of their last nine games at Toyota Center against Western Conference opponents that held a losing record.
  • Each of the Thunder’s last eight games have gone OVER the total points line.

Thunder vs Rockets Prediction

The Thunder are coming in with a full squad once again which is such a luxury in the league these days, while the Rockets are still missing Tari Eason and Steven Adams. This is a classic case of two teams headed in opposite directions with the Thunder coming into this one fresh off a 41-point victory, while the Rockets have lost six of their last eight games overall. It wouldn’t be completely shocking if the Rockets pulled off the upset here as they’ve already beaten the Thunder earlier in the season, but the line is short enough for me to back the Thunder to get their revenge.
