The Thunder just played a tough contest Wednesday night against the Clippers and could be worn out by the second half of this game. However, the Thunder had this game circled for quite some time and you know they're going to want to take it to Durant for leaving OKC. The Thunder are playing some great ball out of the gate while the Warriors have had hit and miss moments as they're still adjusting to a new roster. I like the value of OKC and the free points here.
