Who’s Playing

Oklahoma City @ Denver

Current Records: Oklahoma City 21-52; Denver 43-31

What to Know

The Oklahoma City Thunder have enjoyed the comforts of home their last two games, but now they must head out on the road. They will take on the Denver Nuggets at 9 p.m. ET Saturday at Ball Arena after having had a few days off. The Thunder should still be feeling good after a win, while Denver will be looking to get back in the win column.

Oklahoma City had enough points to win and then some against the Orlando Magic on Wednesday, taking their contest 118-102. Oklahoma City can attribute much of their success to point guard Theo Maledon, who had 25 points and six assists, and center Isaiah Roby, who had 21 points along with seven boards. Maledon’s performance made up for a slower game against the Boston Celtics on Monday. Maledon’s points were the most he has had all year.

Meanwhile, Denver came up short against the Phoenix Suns on Thursday, falling 140-130. Denver’s loss came about despite a quality game from center Nikola Jokic, who had 28 points and six assists in addition to six rebounds.

Oklahoma City have to know they’ll be fighting an uphill battle given the 14 point spread they are up against. They are currently five-for-five against the spread in their most recent games, however, a trend bettors might want to take into account.

The Thunder’s victory brought them up to 21-52 while the Nuggets’ defeat pulled them down to 43-31. A couple offensive numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Oklahoma City has only been able to knock down 42.60% percent of their shots, which is the lowest field goal percentage in the league. Denver’s offense has more to brag about, as they they enter the matchup with a 47.90% field goal percentage, good for third best in the league. We’ll see if their 5.30% advantage translates to a win.
