What you need to know...
Oklahoma City is in the middle of a record-setting win streak and is favored once again in this matchup. The Thunder are favored once gain and need to continue to dominate the paint and attack the basket if they want to keep their record-setting win-streak alive.

The Bucks are on a polar opposite trend from Oklahoma City, riding a four-game losing streak. During the streak, their opponents are averaging more than 100 points per game, and an average losing margin of 15.5 points.

Who to Watch...
It seems like every game the player to watch for the Thunder is Kevin Durant. If Durant is on his game, the Thunder roll in this one, if he has one of his 12 miss nights, Oklahoma City’s win streak might be in jeopardy. Jeff Green has been stepping up for the Thunder as of late, attacking the basket and playing swarming defense. If Durant has an off game, it’s up to him and rookie James Harden to pick up the scoring.

The biggest surprise of the NBA’s rookie class has easily been Brandon Jennings. After choosing to play in Europe instead of playing in college for a year, he had a tumultuous stay with Lottomatica Roma, and even missed his own introduction at the NBA draft. Since then he has blossomed into the top player of the rookie class, averaging 19.5 points per game and 41.5 percent from behind the arc.
