With the possibility of winning two consecutive games on the line, the Cleveland Cavaliers travel to Oklahoma City to face the Thunder.
It was a surprising 24-point win for the Cleveland Cavaliers against the Spurs Monday as the team was carried by Darius Garland. The Cavs are looking to win their second straight game Thursday in Oklahoma City.
The Thunder have lost four straight games and seven of their last 10 while the Cavs also have that same record over the same span. Both teams find themselves in the bottom of their respective conferences with Cleveland at 18-32 and Oklahoma City at 20-31. Neither team has been particularly good this season with the Thunder outright tanking with the Cavaliers pretending they’re not. The scoring differentials for both teams are eerily similar, with both the Thunder and Cavs being outscored by almost 8 points per game.
What this game will come down to is which team will play slightly worse than the other. Looking at the performances of the Cavaliers and Thunder this season it really could be either team. All it will take is a run at the precise right time for one of these teams to come out victorious.
