The OKC Thunder had an eight-game winning streak come to an end when they took a 102-96 loss at Washington on Tuesday, and I think they’re in for more trouble when they pay a visit to Denver Thursday night.
Oklahoma City guard Andre Roberson suffered a ruptured left patella at Detroit on Saturday and has been ruled out for the season. “It’s tough,”Russell Westbrook told reporters earlier this week. “Dre is my boy. I love having him on the floor with me, and it’s a tough situation for him. We are just going to continue to lift him up and pray for him, keep our spirits high for him and keep this thing rolling.”
The Nuggets are coming off back-to-back losses to two of the best teams in the NBA (Boston and San Antonio), so no shame in that. Will Barton missed last-second 3-point attempts in both games that would have given the Nuggets a win each time and they had won three straight prior to the skid.
I expect the Nuggets to show up home at Pepsi Center as they enter this game with a solid 19-7 home record while the Thunder are 11-13 on the road.
My free pick is on Denver Nuggets.
Mike’s been roughed up over the last couple of days, but he’s destined to bounce back in style with a MASSIVE 7-GAME CARD on Thursday, including 3-PACKS from both NHL & College Basketball and a TOP RATED 10* NBA BOOKIE BREAKER featuring Raptors @ Wizards.
