The Nuggets have a very winnable game that would cap a successful 3-1 road trip as they face the 4-29 Oklahoma City Thunder. The Thunder may have the worst record in the NBA, but they are not a decent home team. They may find a way to lose almost every game, but over their previous nine home games they have an average scoring margin of only -3.7. They play hard and keep games close and they have won two of their past four home games.
Kevin Durant started off slowly, but has regained the edge he seemed to find towards the end of last season When he pummeled the Nuggets for 37 points including some insanely clutch long bombs on the way to a memorable 151-147 overtime victory for the then Sonics.
This is a game where the Nuggets have a shot at ending their slide down the defensive efficiency ranks as the Thunder are last in the league in offensive efficiency at only 97.6.
The Nuggets are yet to falter against a non playoff caliber team this season so there is no reason to expect anything less than a victory. However, this is hungry team who will fight and claw all night long and if the Nuggets get off to another slow start look for a tight down to the wire game.
