The Thunder might be playing their best basketball of the season right now and tonight will look for four-straight against the tanking Trailblazers.
Oklahoma City capped off a very successful week Sunday beating the Miami Heat 103-87 and shooting over 52 percent from the field in that game.
Portland is just 4-9 in the month of March and has fallen almost entirely out of the playoff hunt since the trade deadline. The Thunder have played Portland three times already this season, winning the last two times.
The Thunder are 3-0 since acquiring Derek Fisher although that probably doesn’t have much to do with his play on the court. The win streak involved the Clippers and Timberwolves in addition to the Heat and some great play from Kevin Durant.
Durant is averaging 33.3 points, 11.7 rebounds and 6.0 assists per game in the last three games as the Thunder as a team are averaging 122.0 points per game during the stretch.
Portland previous to the trading deadline was a sort of bad matchup for this Thunder team. That is not so much the case anymore and avoiding a letdown, Oklahoma City should take this one tonight.
