Stadium: Chesapeake Energy Arena.
Oklahoma City, USA.
The Oklahoma City team knows how to make noise, but the thunder is short-lived. It has never turned into a full-blown storm this season. Moreover, tonight's visiting team is more like a rock that cannot be frightened by thunder.Get Your Welcome Bonus!
Still One of the Most Interesting Teams This Year Without a Win
Oklahoma has managed to surprise everyone this season. They lose with a league record and win one of the leading championship contenders by 21 points.
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is the brightest star of this team. At times, he can pull out games by himself, but it is still complicated to win two games in a row against adamant opponents, even with his talent and team's help. Especially at home, the Thunder beat the last time on January 1, and then the series of three straight losses. Today it will be challenging to end the streak.
Cavaliers Go to the Playoffs and That's it
This season's biggest surprise continues its march to the first postseason since LeBron left. After a setback before the new year, J.B. Bickerstaff's squad seems to be finding its rhythm again. Three straight road wins a tough one in Sacramento, a +20 in Utah and a quiet one in San Antonio. All in all, you could say that the team has tried all options, and with no problems in the lineup right now, a fourth win today is very likely.
Expert Betting Tips
The Cavaliers will dictate their terms for the home team, and Garland's return added even more difficulties for the opponent. This guy is constantly loading under the other's rings and gives threats from the perimeter, both from himself and his team's shooters, whom he can bring to the free throw attack. It will be hard for Oklahoma to do anything against the visiting team tonight.
