Thunder Analysis: Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is leading this team

In their last game, the Thunder lost to the Los Angeles Lakers 116-104. Oklahoma City’s offensive performance was subpar, as they only made 39.4% of their field goals. The Thunder were also utterly dominant on the glass, as Los Angeles prevailed 55-38 in the rebounding contest. In the defeat, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander finished with 20 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assists, 4 steals, and 2 blocks, but he was only 5 for 13 from the field. NBA Rookie of the Year front-runner Chet Holmgren finished the game with 15 points and 7 rebounds. Now, out of 3, the Thunder have lost twice.


Trail Blazers Analysis: Only won 2 of previous 5 matches

The Blazers’ 3 season encounters with OKC have ended in losses. They will look for a heartfelt victory here because they have been blasted out in 2 of those. The team led by Chauncey Billups is coming off another loss. Portland, the 5th-worst team in the league, lost to conference leaders Minnesota 119-114 on the road last time out. Their record dropped to 17-43 and a 2-game winning streak was stopped by the loss. Prior to traveling to Minneapolis, Portland had defeated Memphis, another struggling team in the West, in back-to-back games. The Blazers may be missing 8 players for this game due to their extensive injury list. Shaedon Sharpe, Scoot Henderson, and Malcolm Brogdon are not in.
