Game 4 Pregame Primer: Thunder (3-0) @ Pelicans (0-3)

Game Info

NBA.com preview | Tip-off: 7:30pm, Smoothie King Center | Broadcast: NBATV, Bally Sports OK

3 Big Things

  • The NBATV round. The Thunder's attempt to sweep will be broadcast on NBATV, where the least interesting games happen each postseason. The Pelicans have a lot of miraculous work to do if we are going to learn much more from this series.
  • 34 years old. The average age of James Harden (34), Russell Westbrook (35) and Paul George (33).
  • 4-7 days. If the Thunder can pull off a sweep, they'll be off until the second round is scheduled to begin (between May 4 and May 7).


I'm repeating my pre-series prediction, made in the form of a Wordle.

I expect to be rooting for the Clippers (tied 2-2 with the Mavs) on Wednesday night, not for OKC to finish off a gentleman's sweep. Ten-ish years younger and a week-ish more fresh than the second-round opponent sound like a good time to anyone else?
