(42-30 Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Toronto Raptors (51-21)
This is a rare home and home across conference lines. The Raptors took the first game at OKC depsite being without the services of All-Star guard Kyle Lowry.
The game went to OT thanks to a furious comeback by the Thunder in the 4th. Not a great look for Toronto but it is still a nice road win.
Oklahoma City Thunder
The Thunder got way down against Toronto because their usually solid defense didn’t show up. They allowed the Raptor to shoot way to high a percentage early in the game and built themselves a hole.
Russell Westbrook scored 42 points in the loss. Big games from him are nothing surprising but he tool double the shots of anyone else on the team, including leading scorer Paul George. They need more balance.
George chipped in 19 but one was one of only three that reached double figures in this one. Steven Adams was a total non factor..
The NBA has a few terrible foul shooters but generally teams shoot it OK overall. OKC missed 14 foul shots and was only 51% for the game. That could have been the win right there and they need to right that.
This is not a back to back but the Thunder now hit the road to take on the same Toronto team. Their struggles since the break have continued.
They might have folded late but the Raptors got a nice road win Wednesday night at OKC. Now they come home looking to keep the good times rolling and put pressure on a Bucks team that is falling apart. They could close the season without losing again with ease.
As good as that would be they are also going to be managing Kawhi Leonard’s minutes and looking to bring Kyle Lowry back in an effective manner. With the injuries and additions they have made they are still feeling things out even though there are just 10 games left.
Pascal Siakam continues to dazzle. He scored 33 points with 13 rebounds in the recent win. His length creates an ability to get off shots at angles that don’t look right but still go in. He is very tough to guard and getting better.

Free Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Toronto Raptors NBA Prediction:
Toronto was +5 on the road and I can see that flip at home. Lowry’s status will be a factor though.
Toronto has been as great home team in terms of wins and losses but not against the spread this season, 16-20 ATS.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: No line currently posted.
I like Raptors to continue to roll. Something is up with OKC and this is not a great situation to sort it out. .
