On Wednesday night, the Phoenix Suns will take their high-scoring offense on the road to face the very good defense of the Oklahoma City Thunder.

In 14 games against the Thunder, Suns point guard Eric Bledsoe has averaged 8.9 points and 3.8 assists per game. Power forward Markieff Morris has been able to average 8.6 points and 3.6 rebounds per game against Oklahoma City, while shooting guard Goran Dragic has averaged 11.8 points and 4.4 assists per game against them in 17 career games.
On Sunday, the Thunder had their two-game winning streak snapped when the Dallas Mavericks beat them 112-107 on the road. The Thunder did shoot well in that loss, but they also ended up with 18 team turnovers.
The Thunder have a losing record this season despite only giving up 96.1 points per game to opposing offenses. Point guard Russell Westbrook currently owns a fantastic 32.1 PER by averaging 28 points, 7.3 assists and 2.3 steals per game.
