There are two games being played on Thursday night. The Chicago Bulls will travel to Oklahoma City to face the Thunder and the San Antonio Spurs will travel to Golden State to face the Warriors.

 

Chicago Bulls @ Oklahoma City Thunder

bulls vs thunderThe first game of the night is the 9-14 Chicago Bulls facing the 20-4 Oklahoma City Thunder. The Bulls are coming off 83-82 loss to the Orlando Magic and want to bounce back here. The Thunder are coming off a 105-93 win over the Denver Nuggets and want to keep their momentum going here.

The Bulls are lead by Luol Deng. He is averaging 19.6 points, 7.1 rebounds and 4.1 assists so far this season. The Thunder are lead by Kevin Durant. He is averaging 28.6 points, 8.2 rebounds, 4.8 assists and 1.5 steals per game this season.

 

My Prediction

The Thunder start the game on a 13-5 run. The Bulls come back on a 8-2 run to cut the Thunder lead to 2. Both teams match the other in scoring until the final shot when Kevin Durant hits a 3 pointer to give his team a 5 point lead going into the 2nd quarter. The score going into the 2nd quarter is 35-30. The 2nd quarter is when the Thunder lead gets bigger. They go on a 15-6 run to take a 16 point lead. The Bulls cut the lead to 7 right before the half ends on a 3 point shot from Luol Deng. In the 3rd quarter the Bulls cut the lead to 7 but after that the Thunder come back and extend the lead to 11. The 4th quarter starts with the Bulls cutting the lead down to 4 by going on a 7-0 run. The Thunder answer back again by going on a 10-2 run to get the lead into double digits. The Thunder don’t let the Clippers cut the lead below 5 and hold on for the win.

Final Score

Thunder: 105
Bulls: 97

 

San Antonio Spurs @ Golden State Warriors

spurs vs warriorsThe 2nd game of the night puts the 19-5 San Antonio Spurs against the 14-12 Golden State Warriors. The Spurs are coming off a 115-92 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers and want to bounce back here. The Warriors are coming off a 104-93 win over the New Orleans Pelicans and want to keep their momentum going here.

The Spurs are lead by Tim Duncan. Duncan is averaging 13.9 points, 8.9 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.7 blocks so far this season. The Warriors are lead by Stephen Curry. He is averaging 24.3 points, 4.2 rebounds, 9 assists and 1.8 steals per game this season.

 

My Prediction 

The 1st quarter is neck and neck as neither team gives an edge as the score after the 1st is 28-27 Spurs on top. The 2nd quarter is when the Warriors take the lead as they go on a 10-2 run to take a 7 point lead. The Nuggets then get the lead down to 2 going into halftime and the score is 56-54.  In the 3rd quarter the Spurs get the lead back by going on a 14-4 run. The Warriors answer back by going on a 8-3 run to cut the Spurs lead to 3. The 3rd quarter ends with the score 78-75 Spurs on top. The 4th quarter is like the 1st quarter as neither team gives an edge. The Warriors hit a 3 pointer to tie the game up but the Spurs come right back and score to take a 2 point lead. With 2 minutes left the Warriors tie the game up on a 15 foot jump shot from Stephen Curry. The Spurs then come right back and score on a 12 foot jump shot from Tony Parker. With 30 seconds left the Warriors miss their shot to tie the game and the Spurs get the rebound and hold on for the win.

Final Score

Spurs: 110
Warriors: 108
