Oklahoma City Thunder vs. New Orleans Pelicans Friday Game Preview, TV Schedule and Betting Line

+Read full article

Mark D.Smith – USA TODAY Sports

Quick tangent before this article, Rant Sports is coming y’all. We were named the startup of the month in November with an absolutely staggering amount of page views, and it should only build in the future so thanks to you the reader for making that happen.

The Oklahoma City Thunder tip off against the New Orleans Pelicans at 8 PM EST, and you can bet I am rolling with Kevin Durant‘s crew in this one.

Anthony Davis broke his hand so will be out for the foreseeable future, which makes me want to pick the Thunder even more despite them being favored (-4) while being on the road.

Here is the TV info for that one.

TV: FS-Oklahoma, New Orleans, DTV: 678, 679, 760, 761

Here is hoping that Davis gets back to full health by the playoffs, but it remains to be seen whether the Pelicans will still be in play at that point. You can bet the Thunder will be, and we could be crowning them Western conference champions by the time June arrives. They lost their last game, but look for them to bounce back in this one.

“We had a nice run”, Scott Brooks said after the latest loss. We came here and played one of the best teams in their building and played them down to the wire. We gave ourselves a chance to win. We have to come back and regroup for Friday’s game” against New Orleans.”

That is all for the previews today, but keep an eye out for my Rant Sports Prep content later tonight. Thanks for reading.

Although Kobe would get the last laugh with the win, his second great performance and the Lakers notched back-to-back wins for just the second time this season, that doesn't stop this Ryan Anderson dunk from being any less disrespectful. The Mamba is in a retirement year, man, let him go out with his dignity still in tact.
