The Oklahoma City Thunder go on the road Saturday to play the New Orleans Hornets, but despite the lack of success that the Hornets have this season this will be a tough game since the Thunder will be playing their second game in as many nights.
In addition to being the tail end of a back-to-back this is a road game, Oklahoma City will just be coming off a home game against the Utah Jazz. With the quick turnaround the Thunder might struggle some against the Hornets.
The Thunder are the better team and should win this game, especially since the Hornets are likely going to be missing rookie Anthony Davis who is recovering from spraining his ankle multiple times in a short period of time.
These two teams have already played once this year with Oklahoma City winning 110-95, that game was also in New Orleans.
Game time, TV: 7 p.m. CT, FS Oklahoma
Point spread: Thunder are favored by eight points
