The Thunder have some mixed signals as far as what sort of prop production they allow from opposing players. On the one hand, they play at the fourth-fastest pace. Combine that with the Jazz (11th-fastest), and we might see a lot of possessions in this game. That has the potential to pump up Lauri Markkanen props numbers.

On the other hand, they have a pretty good defense. Overall, they rank 11th according to Cleaning The Glass, and they just got Lu Dort back from injury. The defensive ace may find himself matches up with Markkanen frequently when the two share the floor. He’s giving up several inches, but that doesn’t seem to matter very often for him. If not Dort, Markkanen will probably see a lot of veteran Kenrich Williams.

A couple of vulnerabilities for OKC may allow Markkanen to make some hay.

There’s not a ton to divine from the chart shots, since Markkanen spreads his scoring out pretty evenly across the floor. One flaw for the Thunder has been their 3-point defense, however, they’re about average in allowing above-the-break attempts that make up the vast majority of the Finn’s 3-point diet. He has a pretty high 3-point prop at .

OKC has also been a bit weak on the boards. They rank 25th in rebound rate overall. Defensive rebounding has been particularly ugly, with Cleaning The Glass ranking them 29th there.

Markkanen’s been a monster on the boards this year. He averages 8.6 per game with a 96th-percentile rate for his position.
