Thunder-Lakers Preview

Automated Insights

A 10-game home winning streak hangs in the balance for the Oklahoma City Thunder when they challenge the Los Angeles Lakers. With a quarter of the season down, the Thunder have shown to be one of the premier teams in the league and come into the game with a 17-4 record. They have been nearly lights out over the last 10 games, going 9-1 during the span. Also at the quarter mark of their own season, the Lakers look to distance themselves from the pack and enter the game with a 10-11 record. This game is slated to start at 8:00 pm EST and it will be covered by ESPN, TWC SN and FSN-OK.

After topping the Grizzlies, 116-100, the Thunder look for another solid effort. With 27 points, Russell Westbrook was the game's leading scorer in the game. Meanwhile, the Lakers are feeling some disappointment after the 114-108 loss at the hands of the Suns. Pau Gasol had a good game for Los Angeles, registering 19 points, as well as 5 rebounds and 3 assists.

There could be a fair amount of transition offense in a game that features two of the league's more up-tempo teams. Oklahoma City is ranked fourth in the NBA in possessions per game (100.6 possessions per game), while Los Angeles is fifth (99.9).
