Knicks vs Thunder – Troubled New York Knicks Travel to Oklahoma City to Face Brain Westbrook and a Slumping Thunder team
The Knicks are making news for their off-court troubles these days (Charles Oakley being thrown out of MSG for one), and they’re struggling on the court too.
They’ll visit OKC on Wednesday to face a Thunder team that’s also slumping. New York has dropped four of their last five games.

Simply put the Knicks “D” is awful (25th in the league in points allowed) which offsets their respectable 12th-place ranking in points scored. Despite being the subject of trade rumors and a feud with Phil Jackson, Carmelo Anthony is averaging over 23 points a night. Kristaps Porzingis has had a few injury problems this season, but he’s still averaging over 18 points and seven rebounds.
The Thunder continue to go as Russell Westbrook goes, and he continues to average a triple-double with 30.9 points (first in the NBA), 10.4 rebounds and 10.1 assists. He had a triple-double when the Thunder visited New York City in November, putting up 27 points, 17 rebounds and 14 assists to lead the Thunder to a 112-103 win over the Knicks. Oklahoma City is 7-3 SU and 5-5 ATS in their last 10 meetings with the Knicks, including a 112-103 victory at Madison Square Garden on November 28, but they’ve struggled of late. The Thunder have lost three of their last four with the losses coming by an average of 13.6 points per game.
A lack of three-point shooting puts pressure on the Thunder to drive into a packed lane as they’re 29th in the league from downtown – only Chicago is worse.
