The OKC Thunder have been on a downward trend since beating the Milwaukee Bucks. Tonight’s battle against a Northwest Division rival is there chance to change their recent losing ways.

While Oklahoma City has struggled early on to start the season, the Denver Nuggets have played well recently. They’re 5-2 in their last 7 games with one of the losses coming against the Golden State Warriors.

After starting the season well with four convincing wins and two losses by one possession, the Thunder find themselves in a three-game skid by losing games they shouldn’t be losing – particularly the Celtics and Kings games.

They had a second-half meltdown against the Celtics after leading by 18 at halftime. They also led the Kings 25-10 after the first quarter, then got outscored 84-61 in the last three quarters by a team that ranks last in points per game this season.

Both losses were embarrassing in every sense of the word. The NBA season is a long-one though; tonight could be the beginning of the turnaround we were expecting on Tuesday.
