Thunder Analysis: Just lost a 4-game winning run

The Thunder’s 4-game winning streak was ended on Sunday by a 118-93 loss to the Bucks. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander scored 12 points in 30 minutes and committed four turnovers, an unusually bad showing. He merely attempted 12 shots from the field and didn’t really contribute much. Though the 25-year-old guard is 3rd in the league in scoring (30.5 points per game), expect that to alter on Tuesday. The Thunder have scored at least 118 points in 4 of their past 5 matches, and they are 4th in the NBA in terms of scoring (120.3 ppg). As Oklahoma City climbs to the top of the West, it boasts the 2nd-best scoring margin (+7.4 ppg). After placing 10th or lower in each of the previous 3 seasons, the Thunder are just one game behind the Nuggets for the best conference record.


Pelicans Analysis: They’ve won 2 consecutive games

The New Orleans Pelicans, meantime, have been playing fantastically lately. They have won 9 of their last 11 games overall, and they will be keen to continue their winning ways after defeating the struggling Pistons 114-101 on the road on Sunday. With 36 points, 7 rebounds, and 6 assists on 13 of 14 shots, Zion Williamson led the squad. CJ McCollum followed with 23 points and 7 assists, and Naji Marshall contributed 14 points off the bench. The Pelicans shot 50% from the field overall and 11 of 34 from three, but their defense was what really won them this game as they kept the Pistons to a meager 10 points in the 1st quarter and were always in charge.
