Oklahoma City Thunder Betting

The Oklahoma City Thunder suddenly had a hard time winning games and is rumored to be focused on getting a good position at the upcoming NBA lottery. Their record after losing 11 straight games is now at 20-38 but still holds a good lead over the Minnesota Timberwolves and Houston Rockets for the worst place in the NBA Western Conference standings. Lou Dort and Darius Bazley have been trying their best to end the bad slump but it is not enough. Al Horford has been rested for the entire season while Shai Gilgeous-Alexander seems to be far from returning to the roster.
