This will be the final game of a four-game road trip for the Lakers. They have won two of the first three contests of this trip, including their easy 133-107 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday. With an 11-8 record, they’re in just seventh place in the Western Conference, but they have won eight of their last 11 games.
This young Oklahoma City team seems to be ahead of schedule with an 11-6 record, which puts it in fourth place in the West. While Shai Gilgeous-Alexander continues to put up monster numbers, first-year big man Chet Holmgren is playing strong, efficient basketball. In doing so, Holmgren has made the race for the Rookie of the Year award a two-man race instead of an inevitable coronation of Victor Wembanyama.
The Thunder have been getting it done on both ends of the court. While they’re fifth in defensive rating, they also rank sixth in scoring at 118.6 points per game and first in 3-point accuracy.
This will be a strong test for a Lakers team that is still figuring things out with a core that is still relatively new.
