It all gets started at 7PM Eastern Time on ESPN TV as the Oklahoma City Thunder will host the Minnesota Timberwolves. This is the second meeting of the season between these two teams. They met back on January 12th with Oklahoma City posting the 101-96 victory on the road and failing to cover the spread as a -10 ½ point favorite. OKC had built up a 14 point lead after three quarters and held a lead by as much as 18 points until their took their foot off the gas. Kevin Durant had a big game with 30 points and seven rebounds. Andrew Wiggins led the Timberwolves with 22 points in defeat. The future was looking good for Minnesota as the season moved into their first month as the team had a respectable record. Things have gone south as the club enters Oklahoma City on an eight game losing streak that took the wind out of the sail from their good start. Defense is an issue for the Timberwolves as they rank in the lower third of the league in points allowed as well as field goal and three point shooting defending. This is Kevin Durant’s contract year and no one has any idea where he may land next season. OKC is 28-12 and has the look of a Western conference champion contender. They sit third in the league in shooting and fifth in field goal defense.

The late night game goes off at 9:30PM Eastern Time on ESPN TV as the Houston Rockets will host the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Cavaliers are in a tough back to back spot after facing a very good San Antonio Spurs team on the road on Thursday night. Houston has had good success against the Cavaliers with six straight victories. The Rockets enter play with a mark of 21-19 and will have a day of rest for this game after defeating Minnesota 107-104 at home on Wednesday night. Defending has been an issue for Houston’s early troubles as the club ranks 28th and third last in the NBA in field goal defense by giving up 46.5% shooting to opponents.
