Team Stats


Series History

The Thunder is 2-1 (1-1 at home, 1-0 on the road) against the Lakers so far this season.

Why the Thunder Will Not Cover (-5.5)

Make no mistake about it: the Thunder will do pretty much anything at this point to avoid a win, and that could mean another embarrassing blow out. The difference in tonight’s game compared to Wednesday’s meeting with the Utah Jazz is that the Lakers do not care at all at this point, and their key players may not even be on the bench, let alone in the game.

Staff Picks

Why the Game Will Hit the Over (227)

Neither of these teams has been playing great defense lately, and with the players that will be on the floor, I greatly anticipate a lot of points in this one. Hitting the over should be a given.
