    Carmelo Anthony will miss the Christmas game versus the Thunder in OKC due to the death of his sister.

    Family is family. My condolenses.


    TPB - If you want to just start the game preview thread from here, go right ahead. I just figured it was pertinent to the game that was coming up.

    Wow, sorry to hear that for Carmelo. KD posted something about it last night on FB, asking for prayers for his family. Class act!

    This Christmas night game between the Oklahoma City Thunder (20-10) and the Denver Nuggets (16-11) will be played at the Oklahoma City Arena in downtown Oklahoma City, OK.

    Gametime is 7pm Central time on Saturday and the TV broadcast is on Fox Sports Oklahoma and also nationally on ESPN. You can also listen to it on the radio station WWLS, The Sports Animal.

    This is the first of four meetings between these division rivals. They meet again in January and then twice in April.

    The Thunder are 10-5 at home and the Nuggets are only 4-9 on the road.

    Yahoo Sports preview of the game is here:

    I think we will play better after a lackluster performance on the road, but the Nuggets have played a tough schedule recently. Its last 4 losses have been against SA twice, Boston, and the Knicks. Missing Carmelo's production, but he wants out anyway so the team may be fired up to prove they can do it without him. OR they may be flat and play poorly without him, this is a tough one to call. I say Thunder win either way, but I choose option A in a CLOSE one.

    The early line has the Thunder as 6 1/2 point favorites and the over/under at around 213.

    Thunder - 110
    Nuggets - 107

    JR Smith throws up a brick to tie the game at the buzzer, and Rumble Claus debuts of course...
