Through 2 Quarters

Those hoping for the Oklahoma City Thunder to upset the Houston Rockets may want to start looking elsewhere for things to brighten their day. Houston is in control with a 69-49 lead over the Thunder.

The Rockets have been led by power forward Christian Wood, who so far has 24 points in addition to nine boards and two blocks. One thing to keep an eye out for is Alperen Sengun’s foul situation as he currently sits at three.

Oklahoma City has been relying on point guard Josh Giddey, who has six points and four assists, and shooting guard Kenrich Williams, who has ten points along with two rebounds.

What to Know

The Oklahoma City Thunder will hit the road for the second straight game as they head to Toyota Center at 8 p.m. ET Friday. The neutral point spread forecasts a close one for these two.

The oddsmakers predicted a rough matchup for Oklahoma City on Wednesday, and boy were they were right. Things couldn’t have gone much worse for them as they lost 107-86 to the Utah Jazz. The Thunder were down 83-63 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from. One thing holding Oklahoma City back was the mediocre play of Luguentz Dort, who did not have his best game: he finished with only seven points on 2-for-10 shooting in his 30 minutes on the court.

Meanwhile, the game between the Houston Rockets and the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday was not a total blowout, but with Houston falling 124-106 on the road, it was darn close to turning into one. The top scorers for Houston were Christian Wood (16 points) and Eric Gordon (15 points).

These two teams will surely be fighting tooth and nail to get back into the win column after losses this week. Check back to see which squad is able to work their way into the win column.
