The resurgence of the Oklahoma City Thunder has been a blueprint of Chris Paul’s leadership on the team. This shows that Paul is still one of the best point guards in the league along with a very high basketball IQ. This team can boast a lot of talented players with the young talented Shai Gilgeous-Alexander emerging as a prolific scorer along with Dennis Schroder. Danilo Gallinari has helped spread the floor for the Thunder while Steven Adams is a solid block in the paint that absorbs a lot of contact and rebounds. Against the T-Wolves, the Thunder are expected to give them a long night. The Thunder are coming off a loss against the Lakers but it was a good game still as there are times that they gave the Western Conference standing leaders a scare.

The T-Wolves are a team trying to find some consistency and being at home doesn’t help their chances against the Thunder according to Sports Betting. The Thunder is a team that looked like they have been playing together for a few seasons already and the league is taking notice already. Still, the probability of not having Karl-Anthony Towns in this game just solidifies the Thunder’s chances but if he is there, Steven Adams will give him a hard time.
