The Oklahoma City Thunder look to keep the ball rolling after winning six of their last nine games. The Oklahoma City Thunder are averaging 109.8 points on 47.1 percent shooting and allowing 104.1 points and 43.8 percent shooting. Kevin Durant is averaging 28 points and 7.1 rebounds while Russell Westbrook is averaging 28.1 points and 10.1 assists. Serge Ibaka is grabbing 7.5 rebounds and D.J. Augustin is dishing 2.5 assists. The Oklahoma City Thunder are shooting 36.3 percent from downtown and are getting 37.5 points from their bench. OKC has won six of its last seven when topping 100 points. The Thunder have won 14 of their last 20 home games. Mitch McGary is questionable with an ankle injury.
The Nets are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 2 days rest and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 vs. NBA Northwest. The Thunder are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 1 days rest and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 vs. Eastern Conference. The Nets are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Oklahoma City and 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings overall.
The Thunder have their 1-2 punch back with Durant and Westbrook healthy. The Nets are finding ways to compete lately but are way too unpredictable. I'll take my chances with OKC winning by double digits.
