Team Stats


Series History

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

Why the Thunder Will Cover (+7)

Similar to the OKC, the Clippers had a rough return to play after the All-Star Break. Also similar to OKC, they are clicking at just the right time, as they have won 5 of their last 6. On paper, LA is the better team because of star power, but the Thunder plays hard enough to compete with any team on any given night. I don’t know if OKC can pull out a win on the road tonight, but I do think they keep it close enough to cover the spread.

Why the Game Will Hit the Over (238.5)

The Clippers aren’t exactly known for their high-scoring offense this season, but some of that can be attributed to key injuries and inconsistent lineups. Since trading for Russell Westbrook, the Clippers are averaging almost 8 more points a game while also giving up almost 8 more points a game. That’s a lot of extra points. Throw in the fact that OKC has the 3rd-highest scoring offense in the league and the expectation of a close game tonight, and I feel comfortable taking the over on the point total.
