Heavyweights of either conference collide as Oklahoma City Thunder host Philadelphia 76ers in the regular season of the NBA on Thursday.
Oklahoma City Thunder are easily the second best team in the Western Conference and might be the only one who can stop the Golden State Warriors in their tracks this season. They are one of the best teams defensively and they will be looking to showcase that having two MVP Level players in the roster puts them in a position to become a championship contender team. For that to happen, Russell Westbrook and Paul George will have to be at their best in the post-season.
Meanwhile, Philadelphia 76ers are arguably the only side in the entire NBA who can match their starting five to the defending champions in the Warriors. The acquisition of Tobias Harris has positioned them strongly to win the Eastern Conference, but that chance only will come good if their star player in Joel Embiid is healthy enough for the rest of the season. Ben Simmons and Jimmy Butler too are great players, as this franchise is finally rising from the ashes of the years of failure they have faced.
