Oklahoma City will try to get back on track Thursday Night NBA Picks
in Denver after losing two of its last three NBA Picks
games. The Thunder had one of their most explosive games of the season in a 124-118 overtime NBA Picks

games at the Pepsi Center.

ABOUT THE THUNDER (32-10):
With three big stars and a sound bench, the Thunder seem unlikely to make a trade before Thursday’s deadline. “I like our guys,” Thunder coach Scott Brooks said of his West-leading club. “I like the team we have. Still, we're not where we need to be and we're going to keep improving and we should.” Sixth man James Harden averages 17.1 points, the most among NBA reserves. Harden has career highs in two of his last three 2012 MLB Odds
games, scoring 30 and 33 points.
ABOUT THE NUGGETS (24-19):
Unlike the last time the Nuggets played the Thunder, they will have Danilo Gallinari and Nene to help offset Durant, who averages 30 points against Denver. “We'll have more flexibility with Gallo," Nuggets coach George Karl said. “The game in OKC, we were playing him (Durant) mostly with our bench guys, and Arron (Afflalo) some. And that's a hard challenge for a role player, to stop maybe the best player in basketball.”
