Oklahoma City Thunder vs Houston Rockets Preview
I typically really like the under in game 7’s, as we saw in the Denver vs Utah clash yesterday.
The problem is that this points total is already 8.5 points lower than what we saw in game 6 and I’m not sure the value remains at just 218 points.
As such, I’ll opt for a spread play here and take the underdog Thunder +5.5 points.
This number on a neutral suggests that there’s a huge gulf in class between the two sides, something that I’m just not seeing.
OKC didn’t even play particularly well in game 6, yet still managed to eke out a narrow victory.
I think there’s definitely room for better contributions from SGA, Schroder, And Adams here, which will only make them more competitive.
The pressure involved with a game 7 tends to make jump shots more difficult and Houston are heavily reliant on the 3.
We all remember the 27 consecutive misses against Golden State two years ago and a similar style meltdown isn’t out of the question here.
Westbrook is clearly out of sorts after his return from injury and I can see Harden waning down the stretch in a game where he likely plays big minutes.
I think we’re ultimately in for a pretty competitive game and I’ll gladly take the dog here through the key number of 5.
