The Oklahoma City Thunder entered Tuesday night’s home game as one of the biggest favorites in the NBA history. They are favored by 20.5 points over the lowly Philadelphia 76ers.
The 76ers have transformed from a that won a playoff series and nearly won another in 2012 to the absolute worst team in the league. Although they only have the league’s second worst record, they have lost two games to the Orlando Magic, the team with the league’s third-worst record and once to the Milwaukee Bucks, the team with the worst record, in the last week.
The Thunder are already teeing off on the 76ers. One of the most impressive plays of the first quarter came when Russell Westbrook found an open Serge Ibaka, who threw down a two-handed jam.
