With another triple-double vs the Boston Celtics on Sunday, Russell Westbrook will reach eight in a row and pass Michael Jordan for the all-time lead in that regard. The Thunder can collect their seventh win in eight games when they host the C’s tonight.
- The total has gone UNDER in 12 of the Celtics’ last 17 games.
- The total has gone UNDER in the Thunder’s last three games.
- The Thunder are 1-5 ATS in their last six games after a loss.
The Celtics are coming off a disappointing loss to the Toronto Raptors on Friday, as the squad shot 37.3 percent from the floor at home. Boston’s need for rebounding help is becoming more obvious by the day, and the team’s 29th ranking in defensive rebounding is leading to losses both on the court and at the betting window.
The club split the two-game series last season, with Boston earning a 100-85 win at OKC in their last meeting.
Tailing Oklahoma City during its current streak has been extremely profitable. The Thunder are 6-1 SU and ATS in their past seven tilts.
