The Tulsa Shock look to build on their four-game winning streak. The Tulsa Shock are averaging 77.6 points on 38.6 percent shooting and allowing 76.7 points on 44 percent shooting. Riquna Williams is averaging 16.1 points and 3.6 rebounds while Odyssey Sims is averaging 14.4 points and 3.6 rebounds. Plenette Pierson is dishing two assists and Karima Christmas is grabbing 5.1 rebounds. The Tulsa Shock have scored 75 or more points in three of their last four games and have split their last 10 games when that’s the case. The Shock inch closer to a playoff spot with a victory here. The Shock are 9-5 SU on their home court and have won three straight.
The Fever are 20-7 ATS in their last 27 road games and 35-16 ATS in their last 51 games playing on 1 days rest. The Shock are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games following a S.U. win and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games. The Fever are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings.
Indiana has beaten Tulsa in the last two meetings and has won nine of the last 10 overall. While the Shock are playing better basketball, the Fever have been possibly the most consistent team in the second half. I look for the Fever to win their fifth straight road game.
