Why the Thunder Will Cover (+6.5)
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander played on Tuesday, and Paul George and Kawhi Leonard sat out for LA, and it made a big difference. PG13 might play tonight, but Kawhi is still listed as out, so expect another close matchup. Clippers head coach Tyronn Lue is good at making adjustments, and LA has plenty of talent, so another Thunder win would be surprising. Still, this one will likely come down to the wire.
Why the Game Will NOT Hit the Over (217.5)
I foolishly expected Tuesday night’s meeting between these two teams to hit the over, and it didn’t even come close. Two days later, I think we’re going to see a slightly higher scorer than Tuesday, but not by enough to cover the spread. Even if Paul George plays, the Clippers aren’t likely to pop off for a bunch of points.
