Oklahoma City Thunder vs Brooklyn Nets is a big game in the NBA on Tuesday night, with the Thunder coming into the game on the back of a five game winning streak. However, they will be facing a confident Brooklyn Nets team at the Barclays Center and it should be an intriguing match up to see who comes out on top. The game is scheduled to tip off at 7.30 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
The Thunder come into the game with a record of 14-4 and even though they have lost James Harden they have gone on a powerful scoring spree. Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook have led the way, helping the Thunder to lead the league in points scored per game, with 105.1 per game on average this season so far.
The Nets meanwhile have had a strong start to the new season, going 11-5 until now. However, they are currently being forced to play without injured Brook Lopez, as well as the sick Reggie Evans. Brooklyn will miss those important players, and the Thunder will look to take full advantage tonight.
Deron William's will be looked at to take charge early on, and he must put pressure on Russell Westbrook on the defensive end to ensure the Nets restrict the Thunder.
The Nets have not won against Oklahoma City in three long years, but their is a different feel about the Nets this season, and they will be coming into this game with renewed optimism that they can claim a win here tonight.
Kevin Durant is averaging 26 points per game, and has been shooting over 50 percent from the field. But he will have a tough battle against Gerald Wallace's scrappy defensive style.
It is anyone's guess who will come out tonight, as the Thunder are the more established team, but the Nets have a good home record, so should be able to compete with the Thunder tonight.
