Thunder vs. Hornets: OKC hopes to rebound after loss to Memphis

Mark D. Smith-US PRESSWIRE

Oklahoma City will face off against the New Orleans Hornets, who have lost eight of their last nine games against the Thunder, on Monday.

Russel Westbrook and Kevin Durant have been workhorses for the Oklahoma City Thunder this season with James Harden now in Houston, and they've led the Thunder to a 6-3 record going into Friday night's game against the New Orleans Hornets.

Oklahoma City lost their last game against the Memphis Grizzlies, falling behind by double-digit numbers in the fourth quarter with no answers, even from the superstars. Against the Hornets, who the Thunder have taken eight of the last nine games against, the two stars might get a bit of a rest. New Orleans is coming off a 100-97 loss to the Houston Rockets that dropped them to .500.

The Thunder will be looking to boost their lead at the top of the Northwest Division with another win on Friday night. They currently have a half-game lead over the second place Minnesota Timberwolves, and a two game lead over the Denver Nuggets and Utah Jazz.

The game will be New Orleans Arena at 7 p.m. CT.
