The Oklahoma City Thunder and the Portland Trail Blazers are both coming off of losses to teams well below them in the standings. Now these teams with identical records and seeded fourth and fifth in the West are set to do battle.

The Thunder lost to Minnesota 131-120 on Tuesday and it continues a troubling trend of the team giving up a ton of points. The team went 11-1 between January 19th and February 11th, so when they were giving up major points, it wasn’t as much of a concern. But they are 2-6 since then as the offense has cooled off. The team is now scrambling to stay in the top-four instead of pushing for a top-two spot.

In their last eight they have averaged 115.4 PPG and allowed 121.0 PPG.

The Trail Blazers lost to Memphis 120-111 on Tuesday, their second loss in three games. But that prior loss was a two-point defeat to Toronto. The loss to the Grizzlies was their last of their current seven-game road trip that’s been going on since the end of the All-Star break.

They are 6-2 in their last eight games including wins over Golden State, Philadelphia and Boston. They are averaging 117.3 PPG and allowing 108.8 PPG over that span.
