Oklahoma City vs. San Antonio Under 201

The Thunder and Spurs get set for Game 2 and the Under holds value here.

The Spurs are typically one of the slowest paced teams in the NBA as they dominate on the defensive end and really move the ball around offensively. However, that wasn't the case in Game 1. The Spurs racked up 124 points, shooting at an unreal pace, which included a 43 point first quarter.

Oklahoma City certainly can't compete if they continue to allow the Spurs to get as many open looks as they did in Game 1.

Expect the Thunder to really slow the pace down here in Game 2. They took many quick shots in Game 1 and allowed the Spurs to get out in transition and get easy bucket after easy bucket.

Both teams have been Under teams this year as well. Oklahoma City has gone Under in 45 of their games while the Spurs hold an Under record of 37-48-2.

Some trends to consider. Under is 22-7 in Spurs last 29 Monday games. Under is 14-6-1 in Thunder last 21 games following a straight up loss of more than 10 points.

This is going to be a much slower paced game here. Expect this to finish in the upper 80s or low 90s as that is simply the only way Oklahoma City competes and stays in the game.

Back the Under.

Good Luck, Razor Ray.
