Oklahoma City Thunder Form

Oklahoma City head to Los Angeles in good form, having won seven of their last eight games.

The Thunder dropped back-to-back road games in early February, but responded with a six-game streak.

That run started with a 127-113 home win over Sacramento, which was followed by a 127-113 victory at Orlando and a 129-107 home win over the LA Clippers.

Oklahoma City then sandwiched a 123-110 victory in Houston with home wins over Washington, 147-106, and the Rockets, 112-95, before finally seeing their run end with a 132-118 defeat at San Antonio.

The Thunder issued an immediate response though, winning 118-110 in Phoenix to secure top spot in the Western Conference heading into this game. 

Los Angeles Lakers Form

Los Angeles enter this matchup on the back of a loss and in mixed form thanks to three wins and three defeats in their last six games.

The Lakers had enjoyed a good run in the first two weeks of February, winning six times in a seven-game spell, but they have struggled for consistency since the 128-110 defeat at Golden State.

They bounced back with a 123-118 home win over San Antonio, only to then suffer a 123-11 defeat when they visited Phoenix.

Los Angeles responded to that loss with back-to-back wins, winning 116-112 at the LA Clippers and 134-131 (OT) at home to Washington.

The Lakers failed to make it three-in-a-row though, suffering a 124-114 defeat to Denver on Saturday night.

Verdict

Oklahoma City are sitting atop the Western Conference thanks to a good run of form.

They are winning games and covering consistently, making them appealing underdogs in this one.
