3 Big Things

  • The drought. Point production has been a problem for the Thunder. Finding who, outside of the usual suspects, is going to score should be a big factor in today’s game. 
  • SGAgain. This is the third time the Thunder are meeting the Spurs this season. OKC won the last matchup behind an Shai Gilgeous-Alexander’s 42 points. A big game from him is important to the Thunder’s success.
  • Tired legs. The compressed NBA season has made rest difficult to come by. If the Thunder can tap into some extra energy for their last back-to-back before the All-Star Break, they’ll have an advantage over San Antonio–the Spurs are playing their third game in four nights.
