Oklahoma City Thunder vs San Antonio Spurs prediction

The Oklahoma City Thunder are on the end of a back to back and coming off a close game, so there could be a bit of a letdown here. However, the Thunder continues to be cash cows for NBA bettors, and the Spurs haven't given us much reason to get behind them. When the Thunder and Spurs clashed back in November, OKC won 123-87. The San Antonio Spurs just don't play defense, and it's hard to take them serious against good teams. I have no choice but to side with the Thunder and the chalk.
