A Prelude to the NBA Finals

The playoff picture is slowly coming into focus. Two teams that are guaranteed a spot in the race for the NBA title meet on April 4 in Miami. The Oklahoma City Thunder visit the Miami Heat in what could be a prelude to a NBA finals matchup in June.

The Thunder comes in the matchup with the league’s second best regular season record at 40-13 and has locked up a playoff spot as they lead the Western Conference by two games over the San Antonio Spurs. On the road this season, the Thunder is 17-8 SU and against Eastern Conference opponents, the team is 11-3 SU.

Miami is 37-14 on the season for the third best record in the league and is 21-2 at home and 9-6 SU against Western Conference opponents. The Heat is three games behind Chicago for first place in the playoff race in the East.

Head to head the teams are deadlocked. Each time is 5-5 SU in the last 10 games the two have played against one another. The total has been OVER 7 times and UNDER 3 times in those same 10 games. The teams met in late March this season and the Thunder
easily handled the Heat 103-87 at home. The Thunder covered a 1 ½-point favorite spread in the win. The total in that game was 201 and the teams only combined for 190.

Oklahoma City is 4-1 SU in their last five games and that includes victories against Chicago, the Los Angeles Lakers and this same Miami Heat team. Miami is 2-2 SU in their last four games. The teams are strong in the backcourt and two of the three top scorers in the league will feature in this game.

Take the Thunder to cover the spread on the road and the total to end OVER.
