Thunder vs Knicks prediction

You never count out the Thunder, a team that's fighting for the best seed in the West and has been a top-3 cover team all year. However, the Thunder are expected to be without Shai Gilgeous-Alexander due to a quadriceps injury. The Knicks are at home where 24 of their 44 wins have come, and they're fighting for a top-4 seed in the East. Also, the Knicks should be eager to rebound from that nasty loss to the Spurs. With OKC down its best player and the Knicks at home, this should be a decent sized Knicks victory. I'll lay the reasonable line with NYK.
