OKLAHOMA CITY: LAST SEASON: 49-33, lost 4-1 to Portland in Western Conference first round.
COACH: Billy Donovan (fifth season, 199-129).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Chris Paul (15.6 ppg with Houston), G Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (10.8 with Los Angeles Clippers), F Danilo Gallinari (19.8 with Clippers), F Andre Roberson (5.0), C Steven Adams (13.9).
KEY LOSSES: G Russell Westbrook, F Paul George, G Jerami Grant, F Markieff Morris, F Patrick Patterson.
KEY ADDITIONS: Paul, Gilgeous-Alexander, Gallinari, Darius Bazley, Justin Patton, Mike Muscala. PLAYERS TO WATCH: Even though the Thunder will be widely expected to struggle this season, the backcourt of Paul and Gilgeous-Alexander ' assuming health ' is certainly good enough to help Oklahoma City contend for a postseason berth. It'll be interesting to see if Paul is energized by the trade, Gilgeous-Alexander is a budding young talent and Gallinari (coming off his best scoring season) is a veteran presence who fits very nicely into today's perimeter-based NBA game.
OUTLOOK: The Thunder went all-in on title-chasing in recent years, and now they're all-in on a reset after trading away Westbrook and George. But this isn't anywhere near a tank; there are plenty of good players on the Thunder roster, and GM Sam Presti has accumulated more than a dozen first-round picks over the next seven years to play with if he's inclined to make a big move. If they can trade Paul, which may still be an option despite the veteran's massive $44 million player option for the 2021-22 season, that would only add more pieces to Presti's plan for an OKC reload.

Because of this important information, no power rating or computer score edges are posted for this game.

DENVER: LAST SEASON: 54-28, lost 4-3 to Portland in Western Conference semifinals.
COACH: Michael Malone (fifth season with Nuggets, 173-155; seventh season overall, 212-222).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Jamal Murray (18.2 ppg), G Gary Harris (12.9), F Paul Millsap (12.6), C Nikola Jokic (20.1), G Will Barton (11.5).
KEY LOSSES: G Isaiah Thomas, F Trey Lyles, C Thomas Welsh.
KEY ADDITIONS: F Jerami Grant, C Bol Bol, F Michael Porter Jr.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Porter was the 14th overall pick in 2018 and missed all of last season as he recovered from back surgery. He skipped the Summer League in Las Vegas due to a balky knee. Now, he's healthy and ready to contribute. A healthy Porter gives the Nuggets another dimension on the perimeter, and another piece to add to the core of Murray, Harris, Jokic and Millsap.
OUTLOOK: The Nuggets have improved every season since Malone took over, going from 33 wins his first season to 40, 46 and 54 last season when they earned the No. 2 seed in the West. They didn't make any splashy moves in the offseason although they did bring back Millsap, picking up his $30 million option and agreed on a $170 million extension for Murray. Behind MVP-candidate Jokic, the Nuggets are a legit title contender.
Nuggets look to extend recent dominance over Thunder

The Denver Nuggets hope they have set aside a rough patch as they prepare to host the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday night.

A superb 13-3 start was followed by losses in five of six games. But Denver responded with a solid 114-99 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers on Thursday in the opener of a five-game homestand.

The Nuggets (15-8) moved the ball well in making 18 of 36 3-point shots while also showing tenacity on the boards with a 48-35 rebounding advantage.

"After a very tough road trip and having lost three in a row, we needed to come home and find a way to win to feel better about ourselves," Denver coach Michael Malone told reporters after Thursday's victory. "To do it in front of a good team, a (Northwest) division rival, in front of a great crowd makes it that much better."

Bench play was another huge asset for the Nuggets, who outscored the Portland reserves 46-9.

Backup forward Jerami Grant -- a former Oklahoma City player -- matched his season high of 20 points and made 5 of 6 3-point attempts to equal his career best in 3-point makes.

"He's being aggressive," Denver shooting guard Gary Harris told reporters. "He's putting pressure on the defense. He's knocking down shots, getting to the rim, getting fouled. He's doing it all. He's aggressive like that on the court."

Oklahoma City (11-13) is 2-1 on a four-game road trip and hasn't had recent success against the Nuggets.

The Thunder have dropped four straight visits in Denver and lost the last six overall matchups. Last season, they went 0-4 against the Nuggets with the losing margins all between seven and 11 points.

Oklahoma City had its season-long three-game winning streak ended when it fell 94-93 to the Sacramento Kings on Thursday.

Sacramento's Bogdan Bogdanovic drained the winning 3-pointer but the Thunder could also point to letting an 11-point fourth-quarter lead slip away over the final seven minutes.

"You can't blow leads like that," Oklahoma City forward Abdel Nader said afterward. "We didn't execute to the standard we wanted to at the end the game and it gave them a chance to hit shots and come back."

Nader drained a career-best five 3-pointers while scoring 15 points against the Kings. It is the latest sign of development for a 26-year-old player who scored a career-best 23 points against Portland followed by 19 versus New Orleans in back-to-back games to end November.

"It's cool to see Abdel Nader, to how he's growing. He's shooting it with confidence," Thunder point guard Chris Paul said. "He just hoops. 'Dule' takes whatever responsibility there is -- defensively, offensively, runs, plays the right way."

Backup guard Dennis Schroder scored a team-best 17 against Sacramento to continue his strong play. Schroder is averaging 21.4 points over the past seven games, including scoring 25 or more three times.

Paul had just eight points on 3-of-9 shooting against the Kings and missed the potential game-winning shot with 1.6 seconds left. The subpar outing came after Paul averaged 22 points in the club's three straight wins.

Meanwhile, Denver star center Nikola Jokic has three double-doubles in the past four games after having 20 points and 11 rebounds against Portland. Jokic is averaging 22.3 points, 9.8 rebounds and 6.8 assists during the stretch.

Jokic averaged 24.8 points, 11.5 rebounds and 6.8 assists in the four wins over the Thunder last season.

Nuggets power forward Paul Millsap (quadriceps) is questionable after departing Thursday's game.
