The Denver Nuggets have always been the toughest divisional opponent for Oklahoma City, and it will be interesting to see the new look Nuggets with Shaw leading the way. They will come to OKC with players like Ty Lawson, Kenneth Faried and JaValle McGee for a new-look attack.
The Thunder will continue to work on their game without Russell Westbrook, who is expected to miss the first month of the season. Head coach Scott Brooks said he wants Kevin Durant to learn to spread the ball around more with Westbrook out of the game, but as this is preseason, don’t expect to see Durant out there much in this game.
Instead, Thunder fans can look at their developing young point guards Reggie Jackson and Jeremy Lamb, as well as the returning veteran Derek Fisher, as they try to work out how they will survive until Westbrook returns.
Tip off for the Thunder vs. Nuggets live stream is at 8 p.m. EST.
