Oklahoma City Thunder vs Orlando Magic – 17h00 03/23/2022 [PT]: The clash of the rising morning stars.
The Oklahoma City Thunder showed great effort in the match against Boston in the last round, but still received a defeat with a score of 123-132. The Thunder have lost in a row in the last 10 games and have had no chance to fill their name in the West Coast Play-in area. Confronting a more worthy opponent, Orlando Magic, in the upcoming match, Shai and his teammates will put in high determination to find a victory to end a series of disastrous matches. With what was shown in the last competition last week, OKC can repay the loan before the opponent.
Oklahoma City Thunder is currently ranked 14th in the Western rankings with 20 wins after 72 games. They are currently only 2 wins ahead of Houston and may even have to finish in the last place if they can’t end the current disappointing streak. Orlando Magic is still the bottom name on the East Coast with 19 victories after 72 matches played. 4 wins in the last 10 matches is not a bad achievement for a team in the rebuilding period like Magic at the end of this season. With a general staff full of the most important players, Orlando has the right to be confident in another victory over the Thunder.

Oklahoma City Thunder is often rated higher than the opponent in recent seasons, with 7 wins in the last 10 matches. In the first competition nearly a week ago, the Thunder had to admit defeat to the opponent with a score of 90-85 with too many absences in the squad. The situation between now and the end of the season could be even worse for the Thunder, when in addition to the 5 injured players, the availability of 3 other important players, Sarr, Favors and Williams is uncertain. In addition to Shai and Bazley who are still impressive in the Thunder’s squad, Tre Mann is also showing his great efforts and looking to the future to become a bright star. The 21-year-old Point Guard had 35 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists in the last loss to Boston, also the second time in the last 3 games that this morning star scored over 25 points. Magic will not have the presence of Suggs, but with Wendell Carter in high form, they will not be bored with the opponent in the next match. This Big Man got 30 points, 16 rebounds in the match against OKC himself a few days ago. Magic will probably continue to sink OKC in the next match.
The Oklahoma City Thunder’s defense is the worst in the NBA in the last 10 games, averaging 125.1 points lost per game. Both Thunder and Magic are not possessing a sharp attack with mostly young players gradually asserting themselves. The upcoming match may turn to the Under bet again, when the injury situation of the home team has not yet shown positive signals.
