New York Knicks vs Oklahoma City Thunder prediction

The New York Knicks in the underdog role is attractive because they continue to play well, and a red-hot Brunson is capable of willing this team to victory any given night. However, the Thunder are off a blowout win over the Timberwolves, and they've been one of the better covering teams in the league all season. Blindly backing OKC has made bettors money, and I'd need more points to consider the Knicks here. I'll lay the bucket with the Thunder.
