Game Preview


At Arena on January 16, the Oklahoma City Thunder (27-12) square off against the LA Clippers (25-14).


The Thunder are playing their second back-to-back game and are also coming off a loss. The Lakers overcame Mark Daigneault‘s team 112-105 to begin a 4-game road trip in the West. Their run of four consecutive victories was ended by their 12th defeat of the season. This 4-game tour will put one of the surprise players this season to the test. They play the conference leaders, Minnesota, and the hot Jazz in their next games. Therefore, it is essential that they avoid losing in Los Angeles twice. OKC’s offense, which ranks 3rd in the league, scores 122.5 points per game on average. In their season-opening game against the Clippers, they scored 134 points to win by 19 points. Forward Chet Holmgren (7’1) has a soft touch surrounding the rim and the length to be a good shot-blocker. In a game, Holmgren averages 17.9 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 2.5 blocks.



For Los Angeles, forward Kawhi Leonard has been enjoying an outstanding campaign. Leonard does a fantastic job of generating contact at the rim and is nearly automatic from mid-range. Averaging a team-high 24 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 3.5 assists per game, the 5-time All-Star Leonard contributed 26 points, 9 rebounds, and 4 assists in his most recent game. At all 3 levels, Paul George produces offensive output. George’s jumper and his relentlessness in penetrating the paint are what make his offensive arsenal so fluid. The 8-time All-Star scores, grabs 5.5 rebounds, and dishes out 3.7 assists on average. George finished the game versus the Grizzlies on January 12 with 37 points, 3 rebounds, and seven of ten from downtown. This will be a close game where the Clippers need to rely on their star players.
