The Oklahoma City Thunder and the Denver Nuggets have been off to a decent start in the regular season and will likely be in contention for a place in the playoffs. The Thunder currently boast of a 6-6 record, having snapped their two-game losing run with a win against the Chicago Bulls. Oklahoma defeated the Bulls 127-125 in a closely fought encounter, with Shai Gilgeous-Alexander scoring a whopping 33 points, and Luguentz Dort and Isaiah Roby chipping in with valuable contributions as well. Ultimately it was OKC's bench strength that contributed to the win, much to the delight of their fans. As for the Nuggets, Denver have lost two of their last three games and will look to get back to winning ways against the Thunder on Tuesday night. The Nuggets were beaten by the Utah Jazz in their last game, despite the efforts of Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray. The duo combined for a whopping 65 points, with Jokic agonisingly falling short of yet another triple-double as the Jazz won 109-105. The Thunder are favourites for the clash at home, but the Nuggets led by Jokic do pack a punch.

The Thunder vs Nuggets game will begin at 7:30 AM IST on Wednesday, January 20. Nuggets forward Michael Porter Jr. (health and safety protocols) has been out since Dec. 29. Porter has only played four games this season, and he won’t play Tuesday night against the Thunder Denver ranks third in the NBA in offensive rating and 25th in defensive rating. The Nuggets are allowing 112.5 points per game. Thunder guard Luguentz Dort and center Mike Muscala have made a 3-pointer in every game this season. Dort is shooting a team-best 43% from 3-point range. Muscala is fourth at The Oklahoma City Thunder were warmed up and ready to play the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday night when the game was abruptly postponed due to contact tracing issues with the Sixers. So instead of a chance to get over the .500 mark, Oklahoma City had an impromptu practice to get ready for a road matchup with the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday night. The gap in the schedule might have been welcome for some, but chances are Shai Gilgeous-Alexander would have preferred to play. Gilgeous-Alexander has been surging recently, averaging 25.2 points over the last five games, including a 33-point effort in a comeback win over the Chicago Bulls on Friday night. He hit 13-of-19 shots in the victory but wasn't completely satisfied with his big night. "I still had a few mishaps and mistakes there down the stretch and that can't happen if we want to be the best basketball team that we can be, so I'm going to go back and watch film and learn from them," Gilgeous-Alexander said. Gilgeous-Alexander is part of a makeover by Oklahoma City over the past few years. The team traded point guard Chris Paul to Phoenix in the offseason and sent Steven Adams to New Orleans in a four-team deal that netted George Hill, four other players and draft picks. The Thunder also moved Danilo Gallinari to Atlanta in a sign-and-trade deal. Revamping the roster has made the Thunder much younger and prone to bouts of inconsistency, much like the young but playoff tested Nuggets. Denver has won the Northwest Division the last two seasons but has put in uneven performances while adjusting to roster changes. Sunday night was an example. The Nuggets had chances to beat Utah at home but missed several layups and had defensive breakdowns that let the Jazz leave town with a 109-105 victory. The only thing Denver has been able to bank on every night is the play of Nikola Jokic. The 7-foot Jokic is averaging a triple-double 13 games into the season (25.0 points, 11.4 rebounds and 10.3 assists), and has not had a down game this season. He has five triple-doubles and double-doubles in the other eight games. Despite those gaudy numbers, he has yet to help his team string together three consecutive victories this season. "I think it is what it is; I think that league is even," Jokic said after the loss to Utah. "It's really tough to have a big winning streak, because you can always have an off night. Maybe if you're really good. Some teams are having, I don't know how many wins in a row. For us, it's hard, because we have to play really, really good to win games." The Nuggets should get a boost later in the week with third-leading scorer Michael Porter Jr. expected to return from COVID-19 quarantine. The 6-10 forward has missed the last nine games but head coach Michael Malone said he is hopeful Porter will return when the team hits the road on Friday. He won't be available Tuesday, but if all goes well he will play Friday at Phoenix. --Field Level Media Copyright 2021 STATS LLC and Associated Press.

The Thunder had their Sunday game against Philadelphia postponed due to health and safety protocols for the 76ers, and most recently played Friday when they completed a thrilling comeback overtime win against the Bulls. The Nuggets lost Sunday night to the Jazz in a rematch of their first-round playoff series. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and the Thunder look to get another win while sending the Nuggets to their second straight loss when the teams meet Tuesday night in Denver. If the Thunder hope to cover or pull the upset against the Nuggets, they will need to shoot a high percentage from beyond the arc and have a big game from Gilgeous-Alexander. The Thunder have only made 33% of their threes this season, but have several capable shooters from distance as Luguentz Dort, Mike Muscala, and SGA all are shooting at least 37%. The younger players on their team and George Hill will need to hit timely threes and improve on their season averages to pull the upset. The Thunder rank 27th in three-point accuracy, but the Nuggets are 29th in three-point defense (per Cleaning The Glass), so something’s gotta give. While the Thunder don’t have a ton of established talent on the roster, SGA has taken his game to another level in his third season.
