The Oklahoma City Thunder face the prospect of finishing up the season without their defensive anchor Serge Ibaka, and it is still unknown as to when Kevin Durant will return. Will Russell Westbrook and his band of merry spot up shooters be enough?
The Celtics have won 5 in a row, including impressive wins over the Grizzlies and Pelicans. They are using a much quicker line-up than in the past, although tonight they will be without super-sprite Isaiah Thomas. However, Avery Bradley is a tough defender at the point, and it will be incumbent on the Thunder offense to show patience as they work against a poor Celtics defensive team.
The Thunder offense hasn't had many issues, but the defense must figure out a way to slow down the Celtics tonight. If they can hold Boston to under 100 points (no easy task), then OKC stands a good chance to keep their playoff hopes alive tonight.
