The Thunder are the better and more talented team than the Clippers, but, uh, who is laying this much chalk with the way they're playing and being on the end of a back-to-back? Not me. The Thunder have oodles of talent and are going to be a force when they start playing like a team, but right now there's too much iso ball going on right now and it's the main reason there's a four-game losing streak going on. There's no ball movement and it leads to a ton of wasted possessions. The Clippers have been solid on the road and have the bigs to control the glass and make this game interesting. I'll take the Clippers and the points as more of a fade from the Thunder.
