Thunder's Big Three Need to Step Up Ahead of Tough Stretch of the Schedule

The Oklahoma City Thunder have gotten back on track thanks to a favorable portion of the schedule, but things will get a lot tougher for OKC when they renew acquaintances with the San Antonio Spurs at AT&T Center on Friday.

Xbet opened the line for the game as a pick ’em with a total of 197.5.

Shark Bites
  • The Thunder are 1-5 ATS in their last six games with one day off between games.
  • The Thunder are 2-7 SU in their last nine games against teams with winning records.
  • The Spurs are 17-6 SU in their last 23 games at home after consecutive road games.

Oklahoma City has won three straight against teams with losing records but will face New Orleans, Golden State and four opponents with winning records after tonight’s contest. Carmelo Anthony returned from a one-game absence in OKC’s 92-79 win over the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday to post his first double-double in a Thunder uniform. The trio of Anthony, Russell Westbrook and Paul George combined to shoot just 13-of-38 from the floor vs the Bulls.

The Spurs had won five of six before laying an egg against Minnesota in a 98-86 loss in their last time out. Foul trouble plagued LaMarcus Aldridge in that game, as the power forward was limited to only 28 minutes in the loss. Manu Ginobili struggled with his shot (1-of-6) as the Spurs’ bench combined for only 26 points.

Expect to see a tightly-contested defensive battle in this one, as the Thunder rank second in the NBA in scoring defense (97.1 points) while the Spurs are tied for third (98.9).

UNDER bettors are laughing all the way to the bank when the Spurs and Thunder get together. In the last four clashes between the clubs, the UNDER is 3-1.
