Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is averaging 22.3 points and 5.5 rebounds while Al Horford is averaging 13.7 points and 7.2 rebounds. Hamidou Diallo is the third double-digit scorer and George Hill is grabbing 2.1 rebounds. The Oklahoma City Thunder are shooting 34.2 percent from beyond the arc and 73.2 percent from the free throw line. The Oklahoma City Thunder are allowing 36.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.1 rebounds per game.
The Los Angeles Lakers look to stay hot after winning 12 of their last 15 games. The Los Angeles Lakers are averaging 112.8 points on 48.7 percent shooting and allowing 104.6 points on 45 percent shooting. LeBron James is averaging 25.5 points and 7.7 rebounds while Anthony Davis is averaging 22.3 points and 3.2 assists.

The Los Angeles Lakers are shooting 38.2 percent from beyond the arc and 75.2 percent from the free throw line. The Los Angeles Lakers are allowing 34.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.3 rebounds per game.
The Thunder are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 road games and 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Lakers are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The over is 6-2 in Thunder last 8 Monday games. The under is 20-8 in Lakers last 28 overall. The Thunder are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Los Angeles.
The Oklahoma City Thunder are 8-3 against the spread on the road this season, but they're also 1-3 against the spread as a double-digit underdog. The Thunder just lost to the Lakers by 29 points less than a month ago. The Los Angeles Lakers are winning at home by an average of 7.9 points while shooting 50.1 percent from the field, and they should be a little more focused this time out after the Pistons took them to double overtime. I'm not confident the Thunder can stay in this game. I'll lay the chalk.
