Red-Hot OKC Has Had Pistons' Number

Russell Westbrook Tobias Harris

The Golden State Warriors and San Antonio Spurs have been dubbed the two best teams in the NBA’s Western Conference all season long, but don’t tell that to the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Thunder are riding an eight-game winning streak and will be looking to push it to nine when they face off against the Detroit Pistons at the Palace of Auburn Hills on Tuesday. OKC has had great success in this series, emerging triumphant in 12 of the last 13 matchups between the clubs.

Shark Bites
  • The Thunder are 4-1 ATS in their last five games on the road.
  • The Pistons are 1-3 ATS in their last four games as home underdogs.
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Pistons' last four games with two days off between games.

A big reason for the Thunder’s success has been the play of dynamic point guard Russell Westbrook. Westbrook has recorded five triple-doubles in the aforementioned streak, and is coming off a 26 points, 12 assists and 11 boards night in Toronto on Monday. Westbrook’s 16 triple-doubles are the most in a regular season since Magic Johnson’s 17 in 1988-89.

The whole Thunder bunch as a whole are shooting the lights out. OKC is shooting 51 percent over the run, while eclipsing 110 points in each victory.

As a result of their high-scoring ways, the OVER has been a hot bet. The OVER is 11-3 in the Thunder’s last 14 with a closing total of 125.5 or less. Oddsmakers opened tonight’s tilt with an O/U of 215.5.
