Thunder are Becoming Road Warriors

The Oklahoma City Thunder are doing the unthinkable in this year’s playoffs. Fresh off a massive 108-102 Game 1 victory over the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference finals, the Thunder will be looking to head back to Oklahoma with a 2-0 series lead when Game 2 gets underway on Wednesday.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Thunder's last four games as underdogs.
  • The visiting team is 1-7-1 ATS in its last nine games in this matchup.
  • The Thunder are 1-5 ATS in their last six games after winning as an underdog.

After knocking off the San Antonio Spurs in the second round, OKC continues to come up huge on the road. In the regular season, the Spurs and Warriors combined for a 79-3 home record. So far in the postseason, they’re 1-3 at home against the Thunder. That’s pretty damn impressive.

The Thunder franchise hasn’t won four straight away from home in the playoffs since the 1995-96 Seattle SuperSonics did so in what would eventually become an NBA Finals appearance. Overall, Oklahoma City is 5-1 on the road in this year’s playoffs.

Normally the Warriors play their best when the game is on the line, but that wasn’t the case in the series opener. The dynamic backcourt duo of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson missed nine of 10 shots in the final period in which Golden State went 6-for-23 from the field.

Bouncing back after a loss has become commonplace for the Dubs. In Golden State's last 12 games coming off a loss, they're a perfect 12-0 SU.
