the Thunder have won 2 in a row and their last game was an impressive one where they put up 125 points and only allowed 88. They are an 8-point betting favorite tonight facing a Hawks’ team that has won 2 in a row and 3 of their last 4 games.
In their last game the Thunder shot a season-high 56% from the floor.
In their last games the Hawks beat the Dallas Mavericks 98-95 and the Thunder beat the Memphis Grizzlies 125-88.
This season the Thunder are 9-3 at home and the Hawks are 6-5 on the road.
The Hawks got off to a red hot start to the season winning 7 of their last 8 games. While they have won 2 in a row they are only 5-8 in their last 13 games.
Atlanta is a balanced team that ranks 14th in the league in scoring and 12th in opponents’ points allowed.
In their last 3 wins the Hawks’ defense has stepped up holding opponents to under 40% shooting.
Hawks leading scorer Paul Millsap is coming off a solid game where he went for 20 points, 11 boards, 5 assists and 3 steals and in his last 5 games facing the Thunder he has averaged 22.6 ppg.
Atlanta has 6 players averaging in double figures.
Oklahoma City Thunder
The Thunder were scorching in their last game when they scored 125 points on a Memphis team that has a good defense. They hit 13 of their 26 3-pointers, Kevin Durant went for 32 points, and while Russell Westbrook only had 13 points he only took 7 shots and he dished out 16 assists.
Durant and Westbrook are combining to average over 54 ppg. These 2 will get their points, but what is key for the Hawks tonight is they cannot allow these guys to shoot a high FG%. It is also important that Atlanta plays solid transition defense facing a Thunder team that likes to run and get out on the break.
The Thunder have to score to win, as while they have the 2nd highest scoring team in the league averaging 108.5 ppg they only average 17th in opponents’ points allowed.
