Spurs vs. Thunder Prediction & Pick
The Spurs have finally started to turn things around after their horrendous 16-game losing streak by winning three of their last five, including a huge 128-120 upset of the Denver Nuggets on Friday.
They've yet to beat the Thunder yet this year, however, going 0-2 against them so far. Neither game was particularly close, either, with OKC winning by eight and 16 points, respectively.
San Antonio has nothing to play for at this stage of the season, while the Thunder still have a possible postseason berth in their sights. OKC also boasts a potent offense that ranks second in the NBA in scoring, which is bad news for the Spurs' last-ranked defense.
San Antonio won't be able to keep up (24th in points), so the Thunder should win comfortably on the road.
Final Score Prediction: Thunders: 122 | Spurs: 114
Spurs vs. Thunder Best Bet
This is an ideal matchup for OKC given San Antonio's generous defense. There's a reason the Spurs haven't beaten the Thunder yet this year, and it's because OKC is the better team. The Thunder should be able to score at will here and cover the spread with ease, even on the second day of a back-to-back.
Bet: Oklahoma City Thunder -3 (-112)
