For the first time this season, the Oklahoma City Thunder takes on the Indiana Pacers. The first of the two matchups comes in Oklahoma City, as the Thunder hosts the Pacers in what should be a decently close contest.

At 45-19 on the season, the Thunder are searching for their fourth straight victory as they take on a 36-29 Pacers squad. They're also looking to protect the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference, which they have a one-game lead on.

The Pacers are currently right in the thick of the standings in the Eastern Conference, sitting at the No. 7 seed, though the No. 4 and No. 8 seeds in the conference are 2.5 games apart. A win would mean plenty for both squads as the timer until playoff basketball is ticking down.

Injury Report

Adam Flagler, OUT (G League)

Keyontae Johnson, OUT (G League)

Olivier Sarr, OUT (G League)

Bennedict Mathurin, OUT (Shoulder)

Jalen Williams being listed as questionable should be a huge sigh of relief for Thunder fans after he took a tough fall, stepping on a cameraman in the team's last matchup. While his play isn't absolutely needed for the team to remain hot, they would certainly miss his production if he were to miss any games.

Still, getting Williams healthy ahead of the playoffs rather than rushing him back is the most important thing right now. Outside of that, there's nothing too new or notable on the injury report.

Updated Odds:

Playing on their home floor, where they are 26-6, the Thunder is a 6.5-point favorite over the Pacers. Still, both offenses will be fun to watch and this game could be close if it becomes anything close to a scoring shootout.
