Oklahoma City Thunder Betting
The Oklahoma City Thunder are now placed second to the last in the NBA Western Conference with their record at 20-45. The only team they are above the standings are the Houston Rockets and they are coming in this game against the Minnesota Timberwolves carrying a three-game losing streak. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is still the best player on the team but he has legitimate help coming from rookie Josh Giddey and the Australian player is having a hard time keeping himself on the floor showing signs of being injury-prone. Winning is not a priority right now for the Thunder and expects them to take their chances to add young firepower in the draft lottery.
Players to watch: Shai Gilgeous-Alexander PG 49 GP 49 GS 34.6 MIN 24 PTS 0.7 OR 4.2 DR 4.9 REB 5.6 AST 1.2 STL 0.8 BLK 2.7 TO 2.4 PF 2.1 AST/TO 20.53 PER
Luguentz Dort SF 51 GP 51 GS 32.6 MIN 17.2 PTS 0.7 OR 3.4 DR 4.2 REB 1.7 AST 0.9 STL 0.4 BLK 1.7 TO 2.9 PF 1 AST/TO 12.63 PER
Josh Giddey SG 54 GP 54 GS 31.5 MIN 12.5 PTS 1.8 OR 6 DR 7.8 REB 6.4 AST 0.9 STL 0.4 BLK 3.2 TO 1.6 PF 2 AST/TO 13.64 PER.
Minnesota Timberwolves Betting
The Minnesota Timberwolves are very much safe as the seventh place in the NBA Western Conference standings with their record at 37-29. They have a good cushion above the LA Clippers who are below them and they trail the Denver Nuggets by 2.5 games. This has been one of the best seasons for the Timberwolves so far and they have placed well in the NBA Western Conference play-in tournament thanks to Karl-Anthony Towns being healthy. The team gets better every game and they are now on a five-game winning streak entering this game with the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Players to Watch: Karl-Anthony Towns C 59 GP 59 GS 33.8 MIN 24.7 PTS 2.7 OR 7 DR 9.7 REB 3.8 AST 1 STL 1.2 BLK 3 TO 3.5 PF 1.3 AST/TO 24.65 PER
