What you need to know about the Thunder

Oklahoma City will be trying to build on one of its most impressive wins of the season, as it is coming off a 117-96 victory over Phoenix on Sunday. The Thunder were 14-point underdogs, but they took the lead early in the third quarter and never trailed again. They were led by Aleksej Pokusevski, who recorded the first triple-double of his career at just 20 years old. 

The Thunder are dealing with severe injury issues, as they are currently without their top five leading scorers. This will be their final home game of the season, as they will wrap up a disappointing campaign with a three-game road trip later this week. Oklahoma City has remained competitive despite the injuries, covering the spread in eight of its last 10 games. 

What you need to know about the Trail Blazers

Portland comes into this contest on a seven-game losing streak following consecutive losses at San Antonio over the weekend. The Spurs won Friday’s meeting by 19 points before adding a 113-92 win on Sunday. Portland is also out of the playoff race and is focused on building towards next season. 

Rookie forward Greg Brown III has been a bright spot, knocking down 9 of 13 from beyond the arc over his last three games. The Trail Blazers are without their top six scorers due to injuries and trades. They have only covered the spread once in their last seven contests.
