Atlanta-Hawks
VS
Oklahoma
The Atlanta Hawks come into this game after a mixed performance beating teams like Memphis, Boston and Sacramento in recent weeks while slipping to San Antonio, Minnesota, Cleveland, Utah and Brooklyn. A lot has to be said about the inconsistency of this team, and primary concerns point to their defensive end where their 2 inside men are not getting the job done as compared to last year. They lost Caroll to free agency which means Bazemore had to step into to the SF position, and he has been quite inconsistent and missed a stretch of games due to injury. Jeff Teague and Paul Millsap continue to deliver consistent numbers for this team on the offensive end, but they have very little else to go with.

 

The OKC Thunder are on fire ever since Durant has been back, winning 3 straight games, and his and Westbrook's partnership along with the Ibaka, Adams, Kanter in the front court has been helping them hold on to strong performances. The Thunder have also a great bench to rely on with the likes of Morrow, Waiters, Augustin, Singler and Collison to rely on to keep the shooting going on while some of the starters are resting. The Thunder have had one strategy since they have put this team in place since the the off-season and that is to outscore their opponents. Around 55 points per night comes from Durant and Westbrook while the rest of the team look to score when they are not there, or the good luck they dish to them.

 

The Thunder have won their last 3 games by an average of 13 points; and I expect them to easily cover this one against the Hawks.pin
