Oklahoma City Thunder
The Thunder crash into this Tuesday night matchup flashing a 43-29 record that ranks them 2nd in the Northwest Division. Additionally, Oklahoma City currently ranks 4th overall in the Western Conference. Right now the Thunder are 14-games behind the conference-leading Houston Rockets. However, Westbrook and company are but 2-games behind the 3rd-seeded Portland Trail Blazers. All things considered, it’s looking like the Thunder are a shoo-in for this year’s postseason. Which is a good thing, because we all want to see how this new trio of Westbrook, George and Anthony performs in the postseason. Especially the way this team has been steamrolling their competition lately. Specifically, the Thunder enter this evening’s matchup riding an eye-catching 6-game win streak. On top of that, the way they manhandled the Toronto Raptors 132-125 the other night was turning plenty of heads.
Players to Watch: Russell Westbrook (25.3 ppg, 9.7 rpg, 10.2 apg), Paul George (21.8 ppg, 5.6 rpg, 3.4 apg), and Carmelo Anthony (16.7 ppg, 5.8 rpg, 1.3 apg).
Despite having such a strong start to the season, the Celtics are in a pretty severe slump right now. In fact, Boston is 1-3 in their last 4 matchups and are rightfully pegged as the NBA betting online underdog this evening. Considering the way they’ve been playing lately, there’s no reason to suspect the Celtics can outwork the Thunder this evening. Especially when considering just how dominant Oklahoma City has been playing lately. Since Kyrie Irving will be out this evening, top sportsbook players can expect the Celts to come out short tonight. On top of that, Jaylen Brown, second in points for Boston, will also be out with a concussion this evening.
Players to Watch: Jayson Tatum (13.5 ppg, 5.0 rpg, 1.5 apg), Al Horford (12.8 ppg, 7.5 rpg, 4.8 apg), and Marcus Morris (12.7 ppg, 5.6 rpg, 1.3 apg).
