I ad the Thunder winning this series, and now they return home to where they're very tough to beat and their role players step up. The Thunder have the firepower to hang with the Warriors and have shown that in pretty much every game they've played this season besides game two.
OKC continues to get disrespected by oddmakers and the public for whatever reason. I'm going to continue to take the Thunder and the points and will make a profit by the end of this series.
