Oklahoma City Thunder

The Oklahoma City Thunder have been in solid form as they’ve won seven of their last nine games overall, but they will be hoping to bounce back in this spot after getting routed by the Lakers in a 116-104 road loss on Monday. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander led the team with 20 points, seven rebounds and four assists, Chet Holmgren and Luguentz Dort each scored 15 points while Josh Giddey chipped in with 13 points. As a team, the Thunder shot 39 percent from the field and 15 of 39 from the 3-point line as they got off to a cold start and managed just 18 points in the second quarter, before they allowed 37 points in the third quarter to trail by as many as 25 points at one stage.

Portland Trail Blazers

Meanwhile, the Portland Trail Blazers have been in a major slump as they’ve lost 10 of their last 12 games overall and they will be eager for a better result after coming up just short to the Timberwolves in a 119-114 road defeat on Monday. Anfernee Simons led the team with 34 points and 14 assists on 13 of 26 shooting, Duop Reath added 26 points on 10 of 14 shooting while Dalano Banton chipped in with 18 points, seven rebounds and four assists. As a team, the Trail Blazers shot 48 percent from the field and 16 of 39 from the 3-point line as they showed plenty of fight to hang with the Timberwolves until the fourth quarter where the Timberwolves opened with a pivotal 9-0 run to start to pull away. The Blazers will face the Rockets after this game.

Thunder vs Trail Blazers Prediction

The Trail Blazers have been ice-cold for a while now and it’s no wonder given that they are missing so many players including Matisse Thybulle, Jerami Grant and Deandre Ayton. The Thunder have quietly been one of the hottest teams in the league, they have all their key players healthy and they should have no trouble getting the big win against a second string Trail Blazers squad who are losing to everyone these days.
