The Thunder play the Pelicans twice this week in what are considered much needed wins for both teams as the playoff race continues.
The Thunder stand at 24-24, two games behind the 26-22 Pelicans. It looks as though Kevin Durant will sit out yet again on Wednesday night in their first meeting due to a sore toe. Durant has only made one game time appearance during the last two weeks, the January 31 matchup against the Memphis Grizzlies.
5. Westbrook vs. Evans
This will be one of the more intriguing match ups to watch tomorrow night. Tyreke Evans is having a break-out year and is looking to make a statement going up against one of the top point guards in the game. Evans is averaging 17 points per game this year, and has looked strong at times on defense. He could definitely give Russell Westbrook some fits, but I still expect Westbrook to dominate this matchup.
