The Spurs are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 Conference Semifinals games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest. The Thunder are 2-9 ATS in their last 11 Sunday games and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games playing on 1 days rest. The Spurs are 3-11 ATS in the last 14 meetings in Oklahoma City and 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings overall.
The Thunder would have won game 3 if it wasn't for the constant turnovers down the stretch. I still like OKC here, as the Thunder are a very good team on their home court and have the two players in the series who can takeover a game. The Spurs are getting shaky play from their supporting cast as well. Give me the Thunder at home in a toss up game.
