Oklahoma City Thunder

The Thunder put the brakes on their first two-game losing streak of 2023 in impressive fashion on Saturday. With Shai Gilgeous-Alexander leading the charge, the Thunder racked up a 19-point lead by the end of the first quarter and never looked back on the way to their highest scoring performance of the season. Gilgeous-Alexander continued his evolution into an NBA star with a 42-point performance. Overall, the 24-year-old has now topped 40 points on four occasions so far this season, and has averaged an impressive 34.1 points per game while leading the team in scoring in each of the past seven games. However, maintaining consistency on the road remains a concern for this squad, which has averaged just 106.7 points per game during a 1-2 run on the road. The Thunder are also without guard Luguentz Dort, who remains sidelined after missing the past four games with a hamstring injury.

Golden State Warriors

The Warriors extended their recent steady play on home hardwood with Saturday’s narrow victory over the Mavs. Leading by as many as 18 points late in the fourth quarter, the Warriors allowed Dallas to make it a game with a 13-1 rally that just fell short. But while GSW eked out the win, the team remains a shaky bet, going a middling 3-4-1 against the spread in their past eight home dates while favoured by 5 or fewer points. The Warriors’ woes are not helped by the sudden loss of leading scorer Stephen Curry, who reportedly faces a long layoff are suffer serious ligament damage in his knee during this weekend’s win over Dallas. Curry had been regaining his form after being sidelined by a shoulder injury earlier this season. However, the club has sorely missed Curry, going just 6-8 this season without the superstar point guard in the lineup.
