The Oklahoma City Thunder need a win after losing six of their last nine games. The Oklahoma City Thunder are averaging 106.7 points on 44.9 percent shooting and allowing 112.4 points on 46.3 percent shooting. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is averaging 23.2 points and 5.3 rebounds while Al Horford is averaging 14.2 points and 6.8 rebounds. Luguentz Dort is the third double-digit scorer and Ty Jerome is grabbing three rebounds. The Oklahoma City Thunder are shooting 34.4 percent from beyond the arc and 73.4 percent from the free throw line. The Oklahoma City Thunder are allowing 35.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.3 rebounds per game.
The San Antonio Spurs look for a win after winning seven of their last 10 games. The San Antonio Spurs are averaging 111.3 points on 45.5 percent shooting and allowing 111.1 points on 46.6 percent shooting. DeMar DeRozan is averaging 20 points and 4.9 rebounds while Dejounte Murray is averaging 15.8 points and 7.1 rebounds.

The Thunder are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 road games and 5-11 ATS in their last 16 Thursday games. The Spurs are 8-17 ATS in their last 25 games as a favorite and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Thursday games. The under is 8-3 in Thunder last 11 overall. The under is 5-1 in Spurs last 6 Thursday games. The Thunder are 1-6 ATS in the last 7 meetings in San Antonio.
The Oklahoma City Thunder are 12-6 against the spread on the road, but they're a tough team to trust given a lot of their losses are blowouts and they're losing their last five games by an average of 8.2 points. The San Antonio Spurs are winning their last five games by an average of 5.4 points and they're about as healthy as they've been in a while. I'll lay the reasonable number with the Spurs, as I just don't trust OKC, especially on the road.
