The Oklahoma City Thunder will head on the road on Wednesday night for a Western Conference showdown against the Memphis Grizzlies.

The Thunder will be playing on the second leg of a back-to-back after playing the Cleveland Cavaliers on TNT at home on Tuesday. All of a sudden, the Grizzlies are vying for the worst record in the Western Conference. At 18-37, the Grizzlies are tied for the least number of wins in the West and have just three less losses (and games played) than the Suns and Mavericks, who are currently tied at the bottom of the Western Conference standings.

Thunder struggling on defense without Roberson

The Thunder fell at home to LeBron James and the new-look Cavaliers on Tuesday night 120-112. Paul George finished with a team-high 25 points, Carmelo Anthony chipped in 24, while Russell Westbrook finished with 21 points, 12 assists, and seven rebounds on the night.

The Thunder come into Wednesday’s matchup having lost five of their last seven games. The team has really struggled on the defensive end of the floor without Andre Roberson in the lineup.

OKC is just 3-6 since Roberson went down with his patella tendon tear. The Thunder are currently in fifth place in the Western Conference standings. OKC sits just two game back of the Timberwolves for home court advantage in the first round of the playoffs.

Grizzlies could have Parsons back on Wednesday

Memphis lost their sixth straight game on Sunday night, falling to the Thunder 110-92 without Anthony or Westbrook in the lineup. Marc Gasol finished with a team-high 18 points, while JaMychal Green scored 12 points and added 14 rebounds in a losing effort for the Grizzlies.

Chandler Parsons, who has missed the last 20 games due to knee soreness, is expected to suit up for this game. He has been officially upgraded to questionable.

Memphis has been forced to rely on some of their younger players in the absence of Mike Conley. One of those players, JaMychal Green has stepped up over the last five games. During that span, he is averaging a respectable 10.0 points and 8.4 rebounds per game. Green is listed as questionable for Friday’s game. The power forward played in the team’s last game against the Thunder, but comes into Wednesday’s contest dealing with an unknown illness.

Trends

OKC

  • Thunder are 13-3 ATS in their last 16 Wednesday games.
  • Thunder are 14-5 ATS in their last 19 games when their starting 5 players combine for more than 160 minutes of the previous day.

Memphis

The Thunder just dismantled the Grizzlies without Westbrook or Anthony in the lineup. The Thunder will be hungry to get back in the win column after a disappointing loss to the Cavaliers on Tuesday night. Westbrook and Anthony should suit up once again for this matchup, which has me leaning towards the Thunder covering the spread at home in this Western Conference showdown on Wednesday night.
