Stephen Nover's NBA Spread Crusher
Oklahoma City vs. Minnesota,
03/05/2019 20:00 EDT,
Score: 120 - 131
Point Spread: +2/-107 Oklahoma City
It's a huge plus if Paul George can play for Oklahoma City. He has missed the past three games due to shouder soreness. But I like the Thunder as a 'dog even if George doesn't play.
The Thunder still are the better team and have double revenge for a pair of close losses to the Timberwolves.
Oklahoma City got out of its funk - a four-game losing streak - by coming from 13 points down to beat the Grizzlies, 99-95, at home. The Thunder have three tough road games following this game - Trail Blazers, Clippers and Jazz. So focus shouldn't be an issue.
Minnesota has dropped three in a row. I'm far from sold on Timberwolves interim coach Ryan Saunders.
