This Tuesday (February 11th, 2014) The #1 seeded Thunder will travel to Portland to try and take down a surging Trail Blazers team. Currently ranked 1st in scoring (107.8)  and rebounds (46.5) per game, Portland will have to find a way to outscore Oklahoma’s defense, as OKC are currently ranked 7th (97.5) in points allowed per game.

However, people can’t underestimate the simple fact that Oklahoma will be bringing Kevin Durant and company into Rip City. In his last 10 games alone, Durant has scored 31.1 PPG, 7.3 APG, and 6.8 RPG. KD is having an MVP caliber season, and sparks will certainly fly as the number 1 and 2 teams in the Northwest standings square off on Tuesday evening.

Both teams are no stranger to being put in pressure situations, however, one could consider the edge in experience has to be given to Oklahoma. Regardless, it will definitely not be a game to miss. Oklahoma City Thunder tickets range from $55 to $592 for this heavyweight match-up. For the die-hard NBA fans out there, this is a premium game at a reasonable price. Thanks for reading, and have a great Monday!
