Hello all loyal readers,
I am back again to make another solid pick for tonights game 2 tilt between the Thunder and the Warriors. Fans in Oakland were shocked as they have only seen the home team lose 4 games all season at home. OKC @ GS -8.5 over/under 224 total points. A bad sign for the Warriors is that Durant and Westbrook shot a combined 17-51 from the field for the game. Good news is they also didn’t shoot very well. I would expect to see more from the Warriors second unit in this one as Barnes, Ezeli and Livingston didn’t have very good games either off the bench.
Main reason for the upset was the lack of turnovers by OKC which I am surprised by given the pace of the game should favor the warriors as the faster overall team. The Thunder can keep the covering and win streak alive with better inside play and good passing and ball control by Westbrook and Durant out of double teams.
My pick however has to be Warriors -8.5 and the over as I don’t see the Thunder being able to outplay the Warriors for two straight games.
