The Thunder weren’t expected to be playoff contenders this season. After all, they parted ways with superstars Russell Westbrook and Paul George last offseason.
Yet, Lakers superstar LeBron James’ good friend, Chris Paul, has led the Thunder to strong success in his first season with the organization. The All-Star guard is putting up 17.8 points, 6.8 assists and 4.9 rebounds per contest this season.
The Lakers are coming off a big win against the Utah Jazz. Big man Anthony Davis put up 42 points, 12 rebounds, four assists and three steals in the 116-108 victory.
This matchup could serve as a potential playoff preview. The Lakers are the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference, while the Thunder hold the No. 6 spot. However, the Thunder could move a few spots in the standings before the regular season concludes.
