What’s going on with the Oklahoma City Thunder? The normally dominant team is struggling this season, and they look to get back on track when they face the Los Angeles Lakers on Nov. 22. It’s going to be good so don’t miss out on this game.
After Kevin Durant, 28, jumped ship to the Golden State Warriors, the Oklahoma City Thunder has been less-than-phenomenal. They better hope they’ve finally worked out the kinks when they roll into the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. If they haven’t, the Los Angeles Lakers will send them packing with a loss AND take their spot in the Western Conference standings. The game is set for 10:30 PM ET so tune in to watch.

The Thunder looks like quite different from the team that nearly eliminated Steph Curry, 28, and the Dubs from the 2015-16 NBA Playoffs. With Kevin rocking the Golden State colors (and some roster moves that changed things up) the team’s been forced to adjust. Russell Westbrook, 28, has stepped up to fill the void, scoring 31.6 average points per game, according to Forbes. It makes up for his 5.3 turnovers per game during this season.
Plus. With the acquisition of Victor Oladipo, 24, from the Orlando Magic, the Thunder acquired a guard who’s pulling 16.9 points per game and nailing 41.3% of his 3-point shots. OKC struggles with its guards, so this trade night deal was needed.
As for the Lakers, they’re doing fine despite a two game losing streak. One of the worst teams in the league during the 2015-16 season have revamped their squad, pulling off a respectable 7-7 record at the start of the year. The only real embarrassing loss was the 99-125 blowout against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Otherwise, thy’ve lost by around 10 points to teams like the Chicago Bulls and San Antonio Spurs. The Lakers better pull it together. After this game, they have two matches against the Warriors in a row. That’s terrifying – but the Lakers are known for beating the Warriors. Hmm.
