The Oklahoma City Thunder and Golden State Warriors meet Tuesday in NBA action at the Oracle Arena.

The Oklahoma City Thunder need a victory here to snap a four-game losing streak. The Oklahoma City Thunder are averaging 106.3 points on 45.5 percent shooting and allowing 102.8 points on 45.7 percent shooting. Russell Westbrook is averaging 25.4 points and 10.3 assists while Paul George is averaging 21.7 points and 5.5 rebounds. Carmelo Anthony is the third double-digit scorer and Steven Adams is grabbing nine rebounds. The Oklahoma City Thunder are shooting 34.9 percent from beyond the arc and 71 percent from the free throw line. The Oklahoma City Thunder are allowing 36.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45 rebounds per game. The Oklahoma City Thunder have split their last eight road games.

The Golden State Warriors look for another victory after winning 10 of their last 14 games. The Golden State Warriors are averaging 115.6 points on 50.9 percent shooting and allowing 107.7 points on 44.2 percent shooting. Stephen Curry is averaging 27.5 points and 6.4 assists while Kevin Durant is averaging 25.9 points and 6.8 rebounds. Klay Thompson is the third double-digit scorer and Draymond Green is grabbing 7.8 rebounds. The Golden State Warriors are shooting 39.2 percent from beyond the arc and 81.1 percent from the free throw line. The Golden State Warriors are allowing 36.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.1 rebounds per game. The Golden State Warriors have won five of their last six home games.

The Thunder are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 Tuesday games, 17-35 ATS in their last 52 vs. Western Conference and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Warriors are 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 home games, 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 Tuesday games and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Thunder are 0-5 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Golden State, 1-7 ATS in the last 8 meetings and the favorite is 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings.

The Oklahoma City Thunder are back to looking like the Thunder of old, as this team can't stops, looks lost offensively and losing to teams they shouldn't lose to. It's hard to trust OKC right now and I don't want to back them against the best team in the league on the road. However, the Golden State Warriors look to be in cruise control, as they're not covering numbers and allow teams to hang around. The Warriors are also just 11-13 ATS as a double-digit favorite this season, while OKC hasn't been an underdog of more than six points this season. Give me the free buckets if forced to pick this game.

Pick:
Oklahoma City Thunder +10.5
