Oklahoma City Thunder: 3 takeaways from Game 1 vs. Blazers

The Portland Trail Blazers face the Oklahoma City Thunder at the Moda Center in Portland Oregon on Thursday

Seth Curry made consecutive 3-pointers but the Thunder rallied in the final six minutes of the half to trail by just 54-48 at the break. Tomorrow I'll get shots up, get back in tune. "We'll try to get the same looks that we got (Sunday)". Obviously, he needs more support from his teammates than a 1-of-18 effort from deep, but the Thunder also rely heavily on George to provide them spacing and a three-point threat.

Kanter, who began the season on the Knicks, said he appreciated the opportunity to compete in a playoff game.

The Blazers' hopes for post-season success were dealt a blow last month when center Jusuf Nurkic (averaging15.6 points, 10.4 rebounds) was lost for the season with a broken left leg.

The Redmond giant disputes this claim, saying that the breach took place from 1st January 2019 to 28th March 2019. Out of an abundance of caution, we also increased detection and monitoring to further protect affected accounts.


It truly has been a significant role reversal from his time with the Knicks.

"I was on the worst team in the league and I wasn't even playing because they thought I was too old to play, and with the situation and all the drama and everything, it was frustrating because I just wanted to go out there and win", Kanter said. This one could really go either way, so while I'm tempted to take the Thunder, I got this series going to seven games, so I'm taking the Trailblazers to secure home-court advantage with another narrow win and cover here behind another big game from Lillard. It was a standout performance when most expected him to wilt under the pressure of going head-to-head with Westbrook.

Kanter backed up point guard Damian Lillard's game-high 30 points with 20 points and a career playoff-high 18 rebounds as the third-seeded Blazers opened their series against the No 6 Thunder with a 104-99 victory on Monday (NZT).

As it stands, the fire has already all but destroyed the roof, and the spire has collapsed into the building. Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo described it as a "terrible fire" and urged people at the scene to stay safe.


Head to head, the over is 4-0 in the last four meetings and the Thunder are 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings.

It was the first postseason meeting between the teams since the Thunder moved from Seattle to Oklahoma City. The Trailblazers will be delighted with how they've started the series especially after getting swept by the Thunder in the regular season. The Trail Blazers will continue to counter with a strong defensive effort as well. I'll stay with the under for this game.
