How to watch: Thunder vs. Cavs

Advice and prediction

There's a reason the Thunder are favored to win this game. The Cavaliers are riddled with injuries (and the decision to bench center Andre Drummond) and have given up at least 120 points in eight of the games during their nine-game losing streak. In the lone exception, they gave up 119 points. So the Thunder offense should be able to bounce back from the 85-point output against the Milwaukee Bucks. OKC's defense has also played strong as of late (including that loss to the Bucks), and they should be able to continue this against Cleveland's lineup. Gilgeous-Alexander, Al Horford and Theo Maledon will all be together in the lineup for the second game in a row, and with a day for practice between, the lineup should be in better sync. I'd take the Thunder at -2.5. They should be able to beat that. As for the over-under, I'd lean under. Neither offense is particularly good, though OKC very well could go off in this matchup. Prediction: Thunder 113, Cavaliers 101
