The Thunder and the points may have the most value here, but it may be time to start seriously fading OKC. Westbrook can only do so much and it's been shown time and time again that OKC doesn't have the depth to help him out. The Thunder are dropping rapidly in the standings and this game doesn't favor them after playing a tough game against the Lakers Tuesday night. I have to side with the rested Kings at home.
