03/13/2012 20:00 EDT,
Score: 104 - 103
Point Spread: -10/-110 Oklahoma City
Today's winner is Oklahoma City over Houston. This is my Sure Shot Winner.
Houston stole a one-point, 96-95 win over Oklahoma City about a month ago. Can you say REVENGE? Right now, the Rockets are crashing, as they have lost 6 of their L7 SU and boast an 0-8 ATS record in their L8 games. Now, their second-leading scorer, Kyle Lowry is out with a bacterial infection. It's only going to get worse for Houston who is already just 7-14 both SU and ATS as a visitor this season, including a 5-12 mark as a road 'dog. Not to mention that they are 0-4 ATS their L4 games played at Oklahoma City. The Thunder walk in sporting the overall best record in the West at 32-9 on the season. OKC averages 105.5 PPG at home in this year's campaign. Super-star, James Harden has hit 30 or more points in 2 of his L3 outing, shooting a remarkable 63.2%. Forward, Kevin Durant is the NBA's second-leading scorer with 27.9 PPG and don't forget about his 7.9 RPG. Russell Westbrook is right there adding 23.7 PPG and 4.7 RPG. Serge Ibaka and Kendrick Perkins own the glass, combining for 14.1 boards per game. This is truly the most talented team in the West. They face a Houston squad that has given up 108 PPG and 49% shooting in their L5 contests. Take Oklahoma City. Thank you.
