OKC Thunder are playing what might be the most important game of the season so far. A win here and they are back on track, a loss would prove that the win against the Suns didn’t matter at all.
OKC Thunder will host the LA Clippers tonight at 7 PM CT and this is a very important game for the Thunder and a win here would make them have something to build on. The win against the Suns was just routine, but tonight they are playing a strong Clippers team who has started off the season very good.
If the Thunder can play defense with the same identity as they did against the Suns, and shoot at the same percentages, they should win this game. A important task on defense will be to stop Boban Marjanovic from getting in to the paint as the Thunder didn’t have an answer for him last time they played.
Overall, I think it will be a very close game but I give the edge to the Clippers just because of their recent form.
My Prediction: Clippers: 121, Thunder: 117
