Stephen Curry Russell Westbrook Golden State Oklahoma City

The NBA’s Western Conference finals have been a roller-coaster ride so far, but it hasn’t exactly been competitive. Oklahoma City, which leads 2-1, will be looking to take a stranglehold on the series when Game 4 gets underway in Chesapeake Energy Arena on Tuesday.

Shark Bites
  • The Warriors are 1-3 ATS in their last four games.
  • The Thunder are 1-6 ATS in their last seven games after winning as an underdog.
  • The Warriors are 13-0 SU in their last 13 games after a loss.

The biggest talking point has been Warriors power forward Draymond Green. After getting fouled in Game 3, Green kicked Thunder big man Steven Adams in the groin, causing the referees to hand him a flagrant-1. Green insisted the move was not intentional, and it appears the league agrees with him. The Michigan State product was not suspended for his actions, but received a $25,000 fine from the front office as the foul was upgraded to a flagrant-2.

The contest was one to forget for Green, who finished with six points on 1-of-9 shooting. The Warriors were outscored by 43 with him on the floor.

This is not the first time the Dubs have been in this position within the last few playoffs, yet it feels strange to see the squad in this point considering they recently set a new record for regular season wins. The Thunder aren’t messing around, however, and they’ve clearly kicked it into another gear in the postseason.

Home court advantage continues to be huge when it comes to cashing spread tickets. In the last 11 meetings between the Western Conference foes, the visiting team is 1-9-1 ATS.
