Game Preview


On Thursday night, the second game of a back-to-back features a matchup between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Los Angeles Clippers. Currently on a roll, Oklahoma City has won five of its previous six games. On Tuesday, the Thunder defeated the Clippers 101-100. Los Angeles, however, has lost two of its last three games.


Right now, the Oklahoma City Thunder are on a great run, which couldn’t come at a better moment. They are only one and a half games behind the No. 6 seed needed to avoid the play-in round. With only 10 games remaining in the regular season, securing that slot is definitely a possibility, especially in light of how well this club has performed over the previous 10 contests.


The Thunder have an 8-2 record over their last 10 games, which ties them with Philadelphia for the NBA’s best record over that time. With a 110.0 Defensive Rating, Oklahoma City’s defensive performance is what has really distinguished the team. On Tuesday night against Los Angeles, that defense was in full force. In that contest, the Clippers struggled from beyond the arc and managed to score exactly 100 points while only shooting 19% from outside the arc.


Let’s check the latest picks, NBA news, stats and NBA expert picks for Thunder vs Clippers. We’ve plenty of NBA predictions for you to consider.


The Los Angeles Clippers are still in the running for the playoffs, but their recent performance is worrying as the regular season comes to a finish. With an offensive rating of 113.5 and a defensive rating of 112.8, the Clippers haven’t really enjoyed a big advantage over their opponents on either end of the court.


Although Norman Powell and Kawhi Leonard’s injuries are somewhat to blame, there are other victims as well. Paul George is out for two to three weeks after sustaining a knee injury earlier this week.


The Clippers have had a terrible season versus Oklahoma City, recording a 102.4 Offensive Rating over three games, so Georges’ absence comes at a very awful time. A 109.7 Defensive Rating has been added to it, but those defensive efforts have not been sufficient.
