TNT will air a double header schedule of NBA games Thursday night.
The Rockets and Thunder open the night at 8 p.m. in a Western Conference showdown. The Bucks and Warriors follow at 10:30 p.m. in a cross-conference matchup of East vs. West.
Game 1 will be interesting in its own right as the host Thunder has proven so far in the season to be better at home than on the road at 3-2, 2-2 respectively. Meanwhile, the Rockets have been decidedly better on the road (4-1) than at home (0-4), so while the Thunder leads the Thunder in the Western Conference, Thursday’s match is certain to be a tight one on both sides of the ball.
Game 2 will be just as interesting as Game 1 because both the Bucks and the host Warriors have proven so far to be better at home than on the road this season. The Bucks have gone 6-1 at home and 2-1 on the road so far while the Warriors have gone 6-1 at home and 4-1 on the road.
Milwaukee has gone 8-1 in its last 10 games and won its most recent game. Meanwhile Golden State has gone 9-1 in its last 10 games, and is in the midst of a strong 8-game win streak, so the edge seems to go to Golden State, going strictly by the numbers.
Marv Albert will have the call in Game 1. he will be joined by analyst Chris Webber for additional commentary. Reporter Ros Gold-Onwude will be courtside with all of the game’s latest interviews and news.
Kevin Harlan will have the call for Game 2. He will be joined by analyst Reggie Miller for additional commentary. Reporter Kristen Ledlow will have all of the game’s latest interviews and news.
