NBA 2020-21 live stream: Denver Nuggets vs Oklahoma City Thunder Match Preview

Match Preview – Denver Nuggets

Canada’s top player, Jamal Murray, takes on arguably the nation’s second-best player in Gilgeous-Alexander. Gilgeous-Alexander has continued his upward trajectory since joining the Thunder in 2019, averaging 21.6 points, 6.2 assists, and 5.3 rebounds while shooting 50.8 percent from the floor.

Despite the loss Sunday, Denver had a lot of positive developments against Utah. None bigger than the performance on the glass, with the Nuggets outrebounding the best team in the league on the glass by 16. The Nuggets grabbed a whopping 23 offensive rebounds, led by Nikola Jokić’s eight.

The key for Denver will be taking advantage of second chances when it gets them. Despite getting 23 rebounds, the Nuggets only scored 14 points on second-chance points against Utah Sunday.

Match Preview – Oklahoma City Thunder

The Thunder don’t stand out in most statistical categories, but they defend the 3-pointer decently. Daigneault’s team is allowing its opponents to shoot 35.8 percent from downtown (ninth in the NBA). One area where the team struggles with is forcing turnovers.

With the Thunder coming in tied for 13th in rebounding, the battle on the glass will once again be important. The team has a committee approach on the boards, with two players grabbing seven or more rebounds a game in Darius Bazley and Al Horford.

Horford is out due to personal reasons, but they have capable rebounders in Gilgeous-Alexander, Hamidou Diallo (4.9), and Isaiah Roby (4.6).
