Game 2 of 5 on Christmas Day headlines Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bulls against Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Oklahoma City will go for their 6th straight home win, against a team that hasn’t won there since 2010.
Chicago has hit a bit of a speed bump as they come in losers of 3 in a row.
Chicago has looked a mess lately, losers of three in a row which includes a 105-102 home loss to Brooklyn on Monday.
This may have been the Bulls worst loss of the season as they looked lazy and rather sluggish throughout. Chicago saw just Jimmy Butler and Pau Gasol play well as they scored 44 of the teams 102 points in the loss. Gasol fell one rebound short of a double-double.
Chicago also received bad news following the game as center Joakim Noah is expected to miss at least two weeks. Noah sprained his shoulder in the loss, as it even popped out for a second during the game.
Chicago brings in a road record of just 4-6 and are 4-6 ATS in those 10 games. They haven’t won in Oklahoma City since January 27, 2010 when they defeated the Thunder 96-86.
The Thunder are quietly putting together an impressive run.
They’re doing it under the radar as the center focus remains around the Warriors and Cavaliers this season. Oklahoma City has won 5 straight at home and 9 of their last 10, which also includes 3 straight.
Oklahoma City comes in off another beat down of the Lakers, this time 120-85, which marked the 2nd absolute blowout win over Los Angeles in less than a week. Kevin Durant finished with 21 points which moved his 20 points or more streak to 15 straight games.
Russell Westbrook is also having his way as he’s averaged 28 points over the last 2 games.
Oklahoma City brings in a home record of 13-3 SU. In those 16 games though, they are just 8-8 ATS.
