Bulls at Thunder: What bettors need to know
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Chicago Bulls at Oklahoma City Thunder (-8.5, 196)

The Chicago Bulls have the second-best road record as they visit one of the top home clubs in the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday. Chicago’s 17-10 road mark trails only the San Antonio Spurs but the Bulls will face a tough test in battling Oklahoma City, which is a gaudy 24-4 at home. The Bulls are just 4-6 over their last 10 games but Oklahoma City lost a season-worst three straight games before downing the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday.

Oklahoma City shot 57.8 percent from the field and matched a season-best for points in the 127-111 win over the Timberwolves. But the Thunder’s recent play on the defensive end remains substandard in the view of coach Scott Brooks and several players. “All five guys that are on the court have to be tied on a string,” center Kendrick Perkins said after the win over Minnesota. “It only takes one guy to mess up the whole thing as far as our defensive concepts.” Chicago routed the Charlotte Bobcats 105-75 on Friday one night after a woeful 86-67 loss to the Miami Heat. Oklahoma City defeated the Bulls 97-71 in Chicago on Nov. 8.

TV: 9:30 p.m. ET, ESPN, WGN (Chicago), Fox Sports Oklahoma

ABOUT THE BULLS (32-23): Chicago reached 100 points for just the second time all month with the trouncing of the Bobcats. Perhaps more pleasing was that the Bulls had 37 assists on 42 baskets and committed just six turnovers. The Bulls had 27 miscues in the loss to the Heat. “I thought we played a great team game and we needed this game after (Thursday) night,” forward Luol Deng said afterwards. “I thought we didn’t play well at all (against Miami). It feels good just to get a win. We’ve just got to keep it moving.” Point guard Kirk Hinrich (elbow) has missed nine of the last 10 games.

ABOUT THE THUNDER (40-15): Guard Russell Westbrook had a splendid performance with nine assists and seven rebounds to go with a season-best 37 points in the victory over the Timberwolves. Westbrook was 13-of-22 from the field and made all nine of his free-throw attempts. “He had nine assists, that’s good basketball,” Brooks said afterwards. “The way he scored, he took a lot of good shots and had a high percentage. Russell had a very, very good all-around game.” Westbrook is averaging 27.4 points over the last five games. Forward Kevin Durant had 27 points and is averaging 29 over the past four outings.

TRENDS:

* Bulls are 4-0 ATS in their last four road games.
* Thunder are 8-1 ATS in their last nine home games.
* Over is 4-0 in Thunder’s last four overall.
* Over is 4-1 in Bulls’ last five vs. Western Conference foes.

BUZZER BEATERS:

1. Chicago has split four meetings in Oklahoma City.

2. The Thunder made all 22 of their free-throw attempts in the victory over Minnesota.

3. The Bulls are 23-7 when holding opponents below 90 points.

Warriors at Pacers: What bettors need to know
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Golden State Warriors at Indiana Pacers (-8, 196.5)

With how well the Miami Heat have played recently, the Indiana Pacers’ surge in the Eastern Conference has fallen below the radar a bit. The Pacers will be looking to post their fifth straight double-digit win when they host the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday. Indiana has won its last four by an average of 27 points and just got former All-Star Danny Granger back on Saturday. The Warriors have won three straight behind Jarrett Jack and David Lee.

Golden State snapped a five-game road losing streak as Jack came through for 23 points at Minnesota on Sunday. The veteran guard comes off the bench for the Warriors but plays starter minutes and is usually running the offense at crunch time, with Stephen Curry sliding over to the shooting guard spot. Jack gives defenses an extra outside shooter to account for in addition to Curry and Klay Thompson. The Pacers, who own the best scoring defense in the NBA, will not be intimidated by Golden State’s plethora of options.

TV: 7 p.m. ET, Comcast SportsNet Bay Area (Golden State), Fox Sports Indiana

ABOUT THE WARRIORS (33-23, 29-26-1 ATS): Golden State was struggling to adjust to having Andrew Bogut back in the lineup. It is hard not notice that the Warriors have played better the last two games with the former No. 1 pick out again dealing with back spasms. When Bogut is out, Golden State relies heavily on a smaller lineup with Carl Landry in the frontcourt and Lee crashing the boards. Lee has posted back-to-back double-doubles, including a 25-point, 22-rebound effort in an overtime victory over the San Antonio Spurs on Friday. Jack, who like Landry comes off the bench, has been the team’s best crunch-time option on offense during the three-game winning streak. The veteran point guard has put up 24.7 points and 7.3 assists in that span. The Warriors kicked off a five-game road trip with Sunday’s 100-99 win at Minnesota and will get stiff tests from four of the best defensive teams in the East over the next week, with visits to the New York Knicks, Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers following Tuesday’s date with Indiana.

ABOUT THE PACERS (35-21, 32-24-0 ATS): Indiana is starting to look like a legitimate challenger to the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference. The Pacers are holding opponents to an average of 89.4 points and lead the league in rebounding. Granger went 1-for-10 in 19 minutes off the bench on Saturday as he began to shake off the rust from missing the first 55 games. Granger could prove to be the biggest midseason addition to any contending team if he can provide the Pacers with another perimeter scorer to go along with Paul George. Indiana has put up 107.5 points during its four-game winning streak - almost 14 points better than its season average - and has moved up into the No. 2 spot in the East.

TRENDS:

* Favorite is 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings.
* Home team is 8-2 ATS in the last 10 meetings.
* Over is 15-7 in the last 22 meetings.
* Warriors are 5-16 ATS in the last 21 meetings.
* Warriors are 1-10 ATS in the last 11 meetings in Indiana.

BUZZER BEATERS:

1. Bogut did not travel with the team to Minnesota on Sunday but could join the trip at some point this week.

2. The home team has won nine of the last 10 meetings in the series, including Golden State’s 103-92 home win on Dec. 1. George was held scoreless on 0-of-7 shooting for the Pacers in that setback.

3. Granger has averaged 23.6 points and 7.1 rebounds in 14 career games against the Warriors.
