Oklahoma City vs. Milwaukee,
01/02/2017 19:00 EDT,
Score: 94 - 98
Point Spread: +2/-110 Oklahoma City
The Oklahoma City Thunder, coming off an easy blowout win over the LA Clippers, go on the road to take on the Milwaukee Bucks who are coming off an easy win over the Bulls and are back at .500 on the season.
The Milwaukee Bucks come into this game playing some fairly solid ball but are only 3-2 over their last five games despite playing no team with a better record than themselves. The Bucks have been successful this season thanks to their defense, decent ball movement, and most importantly to the insane play of the Greek Freak. The Bucks need to find a way to surround Antetokounmpo and Jabari Parker with talent if they want to turn this team into a contender.
The Oklahoma City Thunder have a player who can very arguably be deemed the best player on the planet right now in Russell Westbrook as he is managing to average a triple double on a nightly basis and is basically single handedly carrying this team to wins. The Thunder are a middling defensive team but are top ten in both rebounding and offensive production per game.
Take the Thunder in this one as they are the better overall team and have Westbrook and the big men inside to get the win on Monday night.
