Point Spread: 15.00 | -105.00 Oklahoma City (Home)
The Thunder got throttled by the Pacers 152-95 last night. OKC threw in the white flag early in that one, so fatigue isn't going to be an issue. But after that embarrassing effort, I believe we'll see a much better effort from the home side tonight. Clearly, the Suns are the better team in this matchup. In fact, if going by their win/loss record, they're the best team in the NBA. However, I think the visiting side is going to classically get caught looking past its lowly opponent here. The SUns are off a highly satisfying 121-100 win over the Jazz. Phoenix has hit a "vanilla" part of its final schedule here, with this game at Oakland, followed by games at Cleveland and Atlanta. This one sets up as a letdown spot for the visitors, who could very well rest several starters; grab the points!
T.M. Prediction: COMING SHORTLY.
