Another thrilling Western Conference game awaits basketball fans as the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Los Angeles Lakers are scheduled to go head to head at 10:30 pm Eastern Time on Monday at the Crypto.com Arena. Los Angeles has a record of 19-21, with a home record of 13-7. On the other hand, OKC boasts an overall record of 27-11, with a road record of 11-6.
The Thunder have recently secured their 4th consecutive victory, thanks to a victory against the Orlando Magic in their latest matchup. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander once again showcased his brilliance, contributing 37 points, 7 assists, and 6 rebounds. Oklahoma City ultimately emerged victorious over Orlando with a final score of 112-100 last Saturday.
On the other side of the court, the Los Angeles Lakers faced the Utah Jazz last Saturday, resulting in a rather unexpected 132-125 defeat. Despite the loss, D’Angelo Russell displayed an impressive performance, shooting 6 out of 11 three pointers and contributing a total of 39 points plus 8 assists. This outstanding performance marked a new season high record for him, a positive outcome after recent criticism from fans.
Davis, who has been dealing with an ankle injury, has updated his status and is now considered probable for Monday’s game. On the other hand, both Lebron James and Gilgeous-Alexander are currently listed as questionable by their respective squads. Throughout the season, Davis has showcased impressive numbers, averaging 25.1 points, 12.1 rebounds, and 2.6 blocks per game. If James is unable to play, Davis will be crucial in filling the void left by his absence while focusing on not re-aggravating his injury.
This will be a close match, sadly due to injuries. Even though OKC has been pushing massively towards the top seed in their bracket, without Gilgeous-Alexander, they might find difficulties creatively. The Lakers are favorites to win purely by talent in their starting roster this time around.
