A group like Oklahoma City that battles upsettingly can’t surrender assets and hope to win, particularly in a street game against a group like the Jazz. Steven Adams has been extraordinary down low, pulling in 9.1 bounce back per game for his group yet no other player is more than six. With just a single player reliably pulling in sheets, the Thunder are probably going to get the littler portion of the assets.

PICK:  OKC Thunder +8.5 (-110)

Final Thoughts: I think OKC stays in this game, and if they lose it’s by less than 9.
