The Oklahoma City Thunder have been waiting awhile to play more basketball. They swept the Dallas Mavericks in Round 1 and are awaiting the winner of the Los Angeles Lakers and Denver Nuggets who could be headed to a Game 7.
If the Lakers win tonight in Game 6 in Denver then Game 1 of the second round with the Thunder will be Saturday night at 8:30 p.m. EST on TNT.
If there is a Game 7 and the Lakers lose to Denver tonight then Game 1 will be played Monday at 8:30 p.m. EST on TNT. Game 2 would then be on Wednesday.
The Thunder are hoping for the Lakers-Nuggets series to go seven mainly so it gives Kendrick Perkins more time to rest.
Metta World Peace will miss the final game of his suspension tonight and will return Saturday night whether it’s for a Game 7 at home or a Game 1 in Oklahoma City.
