Oklahoma City Thunder at Orlando Magic Preview

Oklahoma City Thunder at Orlando Magic Preview

The Oklahoma City Thunder are rolling into Wednesday night’s game against the Orlando Magic thanks to yet another cyborg performance from Russell Westbrook. Westbrook powered the Thunder over the Dallas Mavericks Monday night by way of his 37 points, 13 rebounds, 10 assists, and game-winner.

The Thunder will look to build off their win over the Mavericks in their aforementioned showdown against the Magic.

In order for the Thunder to pick up their second consecutive victory, they’ll need a few things to go right Wednesday night. Here they are:

Westbrook in uniform

Honestly, the Magic aren’t a very good basketball team. They currently sit at 27-47, which is good for 14th in the East standings. Correct, the only team they’re beating out in the East is the Brooklyn Nets who may be the worst run franchise in all of sports — apologies to the Cleveland Browns.

In fairness  the Magic showcase glimmers of what could be especially since the All-Star Break going 6-10. Prior to the loss in Toronto the Magic had won three of four. Granted those victories came against the Phoenix Suns, Philadelphia 76ers and reeling Detroit Pistons.

This means if Westbrook bothers to show up — 100 percent success rate on the season thus far — the Thunder’s odds of winning immediately jump to something like 98.9 percent.
