What to Know

On Monday, the Oklahoma City Thunder will fight it out against the New Orleans Pelicans in a Western Conference playoff contest at 8:30 p.m. ET at Smoothie King Center. The Pelicans are crawling into this match hobbled by three consecutive losses, while the Thunder will bounce in with eight consecutive wins.

The Thunder are headed into this one after the oddsmakers set last week’s over/under low at 209.5, but even that wound up being too high. They blew past the Pelicans 106-85. The oddsmakers were on Oklahoma City’s side, but they didn’t give the squad enough credit as the margin was unexpectedly wide.

The Thunder’s success was the result of a balanced attack that saw several players step up, but Shai Gilgeous-Alexander led the charge by scoring 24 points along with eight assists and five rebounds.
