New, comments

OKC looks for a second win over Phoenix this season.

NBA: Phoenix Suns at Oklahoma City Thunder Alonzo Adams-USA TODAY Sports

Game: Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Phoenix Suns

Time: 7PM CST

Location: Chesapeake Energy Arena, OKC

Broadcast: FSOK, FSAZ

Line: OKC -8.5


The Thunder saw their own 7-game win-streak snapped on Saturday with a 111-96 loss on the road to the Dallas Mavericks. This win-streak began with a 117-110 win against the Phoenix Suns on October 28th. The two teams meet up for a second time this season tonight. The Thunder will enter tonight’s game with a much better record than the first time, however the Suns have won only 2 of their first 12 games and are currently riding a 3-game losing streak.

During the first matchup, the Thunder were led by Paul George and Russell Westbrook each having 23 points. However, tonight the Thunder will once again be without Westbrook and will need other player’s to pickup the scoring effort.

Prior to Saturday night’s loss, the Thunder had been in fine form and were doing a great job job of winning games they are supposed to win. Tonight, without Russell Westbrook, they hope to get themselves back on track. Look for another good battle between young big men, as DeAndre Ayton takes on Steven Adams.
