The NBA game action will continue this November 26 with a day in which only four games will be played, one of them being the Thunder vs Rockets, two of the teams that are expected to fight at the bottom of the Western Conference as they did last campaign.

Despite being the worst team in the NBA in the 2021-22 season, the Rockets have won three of their four meetings with the Thunder, and Houston should be confident on being able to achieve a good result in this game considering that the home team has won seven of the last three games when these two teams faced each other.

Betting on the Oklahoma City Thunder

While Oklahoma has had its good moments this campaign, the Thanksgiving break seems to have come at the perfect time for a Thunder team that was carrying three straight losses at the time, and that managed to get back to its winning ways just last night with a 119-123 overtime win over the Chicago Bulls. The voctory was possible because of Shai Gilgeous-Alexander who recorded 30 points, 7 assists and 8 rebounds.

Unexpectedly, the Thunder have been a very effective team on offense this campaign, averaging 116.9 points scored per game (sixth best in the league), but the same can be said for their defense, which is the second most vulnerable in the entire NBA with an average of 118.3 points allowed, in addition to allowing opponents 48.9 rebounds per game – the most in the league.

Gilgeous-Alexander has been the main engine of the Thunder’s strong offense, as he is averaging 31.1 points and 6.3 assists per game, making him the third best scorer in the NBA behind Luka Doncic (34.0) and Stephen Curry (31.6).

Betting on the Houston Rockets

As expected, the Houston Rockets’ rebuild has been far from easy, as they enter this game at the bottom of the Western Conference and with the worst record in the NBA after losing their last three games. Their poor performance at home has played an important role in their situation, as they have just two wins in six games at the Toyota Center.

The stats for the Texans are just as horrible as their record, as they arrive to this game with an average of 116.0 points allowed per game (sixth worst in the league) and have the fifth worst offense with an average of 108.6 points scored per game. They also have a shooting percentage of 43.6% from the field..

Jalen Green is the team’s top offense player, averaging 21.0 points and 3.5 assists per game, and he was the one who led the comeback against the Atlanta Hawks yesterday with 30 points for a 122-128 win after winning the final quarter 18-34.

The Rockets are a team with many flaws in both defense and offense, and as mentioned before, being the home team doesn’t guarantee them anything either, although they will have a good chance to make a decent performance on offense considering their opponent’s defensive problems.

The Thunder team that has also shown its poorest version in away games, losing six of nine of those games, however, remember that they have been a very solid team offensively, with an inspired Gilgeous-Alexander, whichis what has helped the team compensate a little for its vulnerable defense.

Therefore, even though they are visitors and are coming from yesterday’s game, we expect the Thunder’s offense to make the difference in this game against a very permissive local defense, and achieve another victory.

Prediction: Oklahoma City Thunder Spread.
