Oklahoma City Thunder Betting

The Oklahoma City Thunder know that every win counts from here on. Their wins or losses are crucial, results which could make or break their final position in the postseason wars. IIf the playoffs were played today, OKC would be facing the Denver Nuggets. OKC is struggling so far but can correct that in their remaining games. Tasked to lead the OKC offensive will be Chris Paul and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander anew. Though they are against a struggling team, stepping up on defense should be added insurance for the Thunder.

Players to watch: S. Gilgeous-Alexander SG 61 GP 61 GS 35.4 MIN 19.2 PTS 0.7 OR 5.5 DR 6.2 REB 3.3 AST 1.1 STL 0.7 BLK 1.9 TO 1.7 PF 1.7 AST/TO 17.44 PER

New York Knicks Betting

The New York Knicks troubles are far from over. They continue to weed out the problems from within and hope to resolve them as early as now. The task of bringing down the Thunder will not be easy though anything can happen. Julius Randle exploded in their last game and will need to replicate that against the Thunder. Aside from him, help is needed from guys like RJ Barrett and Bobby Portis. Extra effort on defense could help if New York wants to finish the season strong.
