Oops. Wrong Thunder!
Don't let that 12-13 record fool ya'. The Thunder are on a rampage right now in the NBA. They've won 9 out of their last 10 games and are on a 7 game win streak (4 straight on the road) with both Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook back in the rotation. Tonight's game can go 2 directions: expect to see a high scoring game from both teams or a defensive battle between both squads.
As for the Warriors: It's going to be a big challenge with both Andrew Bogut and David Lee on the injured list. We'll be asking for a little extra help from our bigs Ezeli, Speights & Green. We should be okay so long as the rotation is kept fresh, controling the tempo of the game. In order to take a win tonight, we're going to need to shoot better than the 41.1 percent against the Grizzlies last Tuesday. Stephen Curry & Klay Thompson shouldn't have a problem making their baskets at home.
Regardless of Tuesday's loss, I feel like we still have the home momentum tonight. The Dubs have great chemistry even with both Lee & Bogut out, Kerr will make great adjustments and match up problems for OKC. The Thunder on the other hand have a lot of catching up to do and feel they have more to prove with us currently owning the number one spot. I got my money on the Warriors tonight so long as they make their shots and play great defense.
