Kevin Durant is having an incredible year, and it would be tough to bet against this guy even on the road. The Thunder are favored (-2.5), but not by much so would go with OKC in this one; Scott Brooks has not liked the defensive effort lately so that is definitely something to keep an eye on in the coming weeks.
“Our defense was up and down all night and we didn’t do a good job executing down the stretch,” Brooks said after the weekend win. “Tonight we had three or four spurts where we locked down (on defense). The rest of the time we were just hoping they’d miss.”
Does not exactly sound like a coach with confidence, but we will see if they can get back into gear defensively against the Nuggets. The Nugs, meanwhile, will try to use their home-court advantage by playing an up and down game. The problem? The Thunder thrive in an uptempo game, and this just is not a good matchup for the Mile High boys.
One more preview coming your way today, and then stop by Rant Sports Prep later tonight. Thanks for stopping by folks.
