This Western Conference matchup includes two of the top 3 teams in the conference.
The Oklahoma City Thunder look to tighten the gap between the top teams.
The San Antonio Spurs look to stay beaten at home.
The Oklahoma City Thunder have shown to play like the best team in the NBA at times, but also have looked very bad at times. They are 3-2 in their past 5 games. In that stretch, they have been averaging 111.8 points per game and giving up 108.8 points per game.
OKC is led by perennial all-stars Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. KD is leading the thunder in scoring, averaging 28.1 points and 8.4 rebounds a game. Russell Westbrook has been doing Russell Westbrook things, averaging 24.1 points, 10.5 assists, and 7.6 rebounds per game.
The Thunder were last in action against the Clippers at home, where they won 120-108. Kevin Durant led them in scoring with 30 points to go with 12 rebounds and 7 assists. Russell Westbrook with a stat line I have never seen before. Westbrook had 25 points, 20 assists, and 11 rebounds in the win. The Thunder currently stand in 3rd place in the Western Conference.
San Antonio Spurs
The San Antonio Spurs have looked like arguably the best team in the NBA. The Spurs have won 4 of their last 5 contests. During that span, they have been averaging 100.4 points per game and playing strict defense, only giving up 90.2.
The Spurs are led by new faces this season. Kawhi Leonard is leading the team, averaging 20.8 points to go with 6.8 rebounds. First year Spur LaMarcus Aldridge is averaging 17.4 points to go with 8.5 rebounds.
The Spurs were last in action in Minnesota where they defeated the Timberwolves.
LaMarcuse Aldridge led the way with 29 points and 7 rebounds.
David West contributed 18 points and Leonard poured in 15 of his own.
The Spurs only stand behind the Warriors for the best record in the NBA, and look to improve that going into the postseason.

Free OKC Thunder vs San Antonio Spurs NBA Prediction:
This will be a very good game on Saturday night, and this is likely to be the Western Conference matchup in the second round. This game will test the Spurs defensive but I believe that Leonard will be able to contain Durant to some point.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Thunder ATS
I am taking the home team Spurs straight up as they are too tough to beat at home, but I like the Thunder ATS.
