The Oklahoma City Thunder travel Saturday night to face Darius Garland and the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Thunder have won only a single game in January, and that was against a Nets team without Durant, Irving, Aldridge, Claxton, Mills, and Harris. At this point, it is not logical to have any expectations of victory for this young Thunder squad. They have young players with very high ceilings, but none of them would be a top 3 or even top 4 option on a championship team currently except for Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. They are what they are: a fun squad with some flashy highlights, but ultimately a team struggling to break 100 points every night. Veteran Derrick Favors was questionable for the game, but he will be able to suit up. His presence is a life raft for the Thunder center rotation. Jeremiah Robinson-Earl has played center recently, but he is a power forward who cannot adequately play center for long stretches of minutes. Mike Muscala is their bench big man, but he is comfortable as a stretch five and not as a big body defending the paint with highlight reel blocks. Favors has the experience and strength to match up with Evan Mobley and Jarrett Allen better than Robinson-Earl can.
The Cavaliers have thoroughly exceeded pre-season expectations as they are one of the better teams in the Eastern Conference. They were in the midst of a 5 game winning streak before losing 117-104 Wednesday night to the Bulls. Markkanen torched the Bulls for 28 points on 9/14 shooting and Garland had an all-around game with 20 points, 5 rebounds, and 12 assists. It was not enough in the end, since the vaunted Cleveland defense could not contain DeRozan (30 points) or Vucevic (24 points, 12 rebounds). The Cavaliers will enter their game against the Thunder with renewed determination to build another winning streak. Rajon Rondo and Lamar Stevens are game time decisions, but the entire main core is ready to play. The Cavaliers will look to exploit the weak Thunder frontcourt with their devastating trio of Markkanen, Mobley, and Allen.
