The Oklahoma City Thunder vs. the Philadelphia 76ers game will air live on TV tonight, according to a March 4, Fansided report. The interesting news about this game is that new OKC player Caron Butler will play tonight against the 76ers.
In fact, because of Thabo Sefolosha's injury, Butler could actually see his first start with the Thunder tonight at Chesapeake Energy Arena. Since Sefolosha will likely be out for between four and six weeks, Caron Butler should be a huge asset to the team starting right off.
If you aren't going to watch Oklahoma City in OKC, you can catch the OKC vs. Philadelphia game tonight on live TV starting at 8 p.m. EST on CSNP and FSOK depending on where you live. Despite the injuries OKC is facing, they are still favored in this game by over 20 points. It is interesting to see how the team plays when new people are in the lineup and how they handle the adversity that comes with injuries throughout the season.
Of course, the 76ers are the worst in the league, and OKC has Kevin Durant and company despite all the injuries. They should handily win this game, but it will be interesting to see how Caron Butler meshes with the rest of the lineup in Oklahoma City. If they win, this will be the Thunder's third straight win. Being favored by 20 points in any game seems somewhat crazy, but if any team can cover it, it would be OKC.
