Why the Thunder can cover

Oklahoma City is in for revenge on Tuesday night after losing the first meeting between these teams on Sunday. The Thunder are also sliding down the Western Conference standings, so they desperately need a win to get back on track. They lost a pair of close road games at Utah and Phoenix last week, but had won three of their previous four games.

The Thunder will be without star guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander again on Tuesday, as he enters the league’s health and safety protocols. He’s already missed two straight games due to ankle and groin injuries, but this is irrelevant. Isaiah Joe started both of those games in place of Gilgeous-Alexander, pouring in a combined 52 points in those contests.

Why the Kings can cover

Sacramento is sitting 10 games over the .500 mark for the first time since the 2004-05 campaign. The Kings, who led the league in scoring with 120.7 points per game, defeated Oklahoma City 124-115 on Sunday. They were led by guard De’Aaron Fox with 33 points and eight assists, while Keegan Murray had 20 points and Domantas Sabonis added 14 points, 15 rebounds and eight assists.

The Kings earned a 176-175 double overtime victory against the Clippers on Friday night in the second highest scoring game in NBA history. Malik Manach scored a career-high 45 points, while Fox finished with 42 points. They raced out to a 13-point lead against Oklahoma City on Sunday and did not trail, shooting 52.9% from the floor and 18 of 43 from 3-point range. Fox is doubtful to play Tuesday night due to a hand injury.
