Thunder Vs. Cavs: NBA Preview, Game Info And More

The Oklahoma City Thunder play the third of their five-game home stand against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday.

The Oklahoma City Thunder host a Cleveland Cavaliers team with a lot of momentum on Friday night, coming off rookie Kyrie Irving's game-winning basket against the Denver Nuggets where he drove the length of the court and avoided Nene in the lane to score.

That bucket ended a six-game losing streak for the young Cavaliers (14-23). The Thunder is playing the third of a five-game home stand, in which they are 2-0 so far with wins over the Dallas Mavericks and Phoenix Suns.

Oklahoma City's big three of Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and James Harden each scored 30 points in the 115-104 victory against the Suns on Wednesday, while Cleveland hardly has the offensive fire power to match the Thunder's.

Irving and veteran Antawn Jamison are both averaging just over 18 points a game, but aside from those two, the next best scorers are Anderson Varajao and Ramon Sessions.

The game starts at 7 p.m. CST. For more on the Oklahoma City Thunder, visit Welcome To Loud City and SB Nation Kansas City. For more on the Cleveland Cavaliers, check out Fear the Sword.
