How to watch: Thunder vs. Spurs

Advice and prediction

I’d like to issue a formal apology to the Thunder. After I had a relatively strong start with my predictions, I was way off against the New York teams the last two games. If I remain far off base here, I’ll take a couple games off predicting to re-evaluate.

With that said, this is a game the Thunder could take. The Spurs are 18th in offensive rating and 20th in defensive rating. They’re 19th in 3-pointers allowed and last in rebounds, according to Lineups. The Thunder have been taking a high number of 3s. If they can make them and crash the boards, they’ll be well off.

Defensively, the Spurs don’t have a player performing at the level of Kevin Durant, Julius Randle, Zion Williamson or Brandon Ingram, all of whom the Thunder have played during this winning streak. Lu Dort and Darius Bazley have had plenty of practice over the past week to take on the Spurs.

The Thunder have played well defensively and shown pop offensively. It’ll take continued success from the bench, but they could win.

Prediction: Thunder 111, Spurs 105
