Bet here and win
Oklahoma City Thunder
The Thunder reached the 6th place and are slowly approaching the top five of the Western Conference. The team shows a stable game and feels comfortable at the top of the tournament table. The guys of Billy Donovan lost two games in a row, but they showed class in the last meeting.
Oklahoma had no problems dealing with Detroit, though now everyone is lazy to beat the pistons. Thunder dominated the floor and simply played in their style (114-107). The meeting with another outsider of the league is ahead, but in this case we will have to do even more.
The guests of the upcoming game, unlike their opponents, are quite confidently located in the playoff zone of the western conference, and 13 victories in the last 15 away matches demonstrate a high and stable level of the team, which is not often met with the leaders of the conference.
New York Knicks
New Yorkers may still surprise from time to time, but in dream team looks terrible. Mike Miller’s players tried to fight for the middle of the standings, but almost all the attempts failed.
The management of New York made a mistake in the off-season, when they did not invite Kairi Irving and Kevin Durant, but everything went to the point. After two victories in a row, the Knicks were unable to continue the series and lost to Utah (104-112), although it was noticeable that the team did their best. In a word, there’s a strong desire to win, but no opportunities yet.
Mike Miller’s players, despite the fact that they won the last two games, is only the fourth victory out of 10 past games. Performing in this way, the team is on the third line from the bottom of the standings table, and we can’t expect any stable result from them during almost the entire season. Because their performance is at this level all the time.
Thunder vs Knicks Prediction
Summing up the statistics we have for this match, we see a clear advantage of the guest team in this game. Such results as Oklahoma shows away recently only a few teams show in both conferences, so it will probably be the most important criterion that will help to determine the favorite for this match.
