The Oklahoma City Thunder are allowing 36.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.5 rebounds per game.
The Philadelphia 76ers are a banged up basketball team that's still without Ben Simmons, has a questionable Embiid and even Andre Drummond is doubtful with an ankle injury. The Oklahoma City Thunder are off to a terrible start this season, as they've been god awful offensively and don't even shoot free throws well. It's just two games, but OKC couldn't play worse up to this point. And with that said, I'll still take a shot with the Thunder and the points. The 76ers are missing a lot of bodies and are banged up.
A healthy Thunder team at home should be able to compete. Should being the keyword.
