Spurs vs Thunder Free Pick June 2, 2012

The fourth game of the Western Conference finals between the San Antonio Spurs and Oklahoma City Thunder will be played tonight in Chesapeake Energy Arena, home of the Thunder. OKC won game three by 20 points over the Spurs to narrow the Spurs’ lead in the series to just 2-1 heading into tonight’s action.

The Spurs shot only 39.5% from the field in game three. Tim Duncan only shot 33% from the field and is shooting just 27% from the field over the last two games combined. Tony Parker, the team’s leading scorer was held to 16 points. Nevertheless, the Spurs still lead the series, still hold home court advantage and reaching the NBA finals still runs through San Antonio.

The Thunder received the normal great offensive punch from Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant, the league’s leading scorer. However, they also were helped by Serge Ibaka and Thabo Sefolosha on both the offense end and defensive end. Sefolosha scored 19 points and Ibaka added 14. Defensively, both helped make life miserable for the Spurs with their tough straight up defensive efforts.

The Spurs only scored 82 in game three, but during their 20 game winning streak San Antonio scored 100 or more points 18 times. The Thunder improved to 6-0 SU during the playoffs at home. Overall, in their last 15 home playoff games, the Thunder is 12-3 SU. However, the Thunder has not been too successful ATS in home games after winning a home game. In that scenario, the Thunder is just 4-9 ATS.

The current line has the Thunder as a 3 ½-point favorite after opening with OKC as a 4-point favorite. The total is resting at 202 ½. Smart money is taking the Spurs plus the points to return to their winning form. The total will make winners of those who take the OVER.
