We’re not sure if Russell Westbrook is human at this point. The dynamic point guard is doing everything he can to propel the Oklahoma City Thunder to the playoffs, and despite his ridiculous performances he still trails James Harden in the MVP race. Westbrook and the Thunder are in tough tonight with the mighty San Antonio Spurs in town, and sportsbooks opened the Spurs as 2-point road chalk with an OVER/UNDER of 207.5.
– Shark Bites
- The total has gone UNDER in 10 of the Spurs’ last 14 games on the road against the Thunder.
- The Thunder are 7-2 ATS in their last nine games at home against teams with winning records.
- The Spurs are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games on Friday.
Westbrook posted his second 50-point triple-double of the season as he racked up 57 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists while the Thunder rallied to a 114-106 overtime win over the Orlando Magic on Wednesday. The veteran now has 38 triple-doubles on the year, which leaves him three behind the legendary Oscar Robertson (1961-62), and it helped OKC clinch a playoff spot.
San Antonio’s five-game winning streak was halted in a 110-98 loss to the Golden State Warriors earlier in the week. The Spurs trail the Warriors by 3 1/2 games for the top spot in the Western Conference, and they’ll need a better effort from Kawhi Leonard going forward. Leonard had a shaky game vs the Warriors, finishing with 19 points on 7-of-20 shooting.
The Spurs have a terrible track record in OKC, going 3-14 SU and ATS in their last 17 trips to Chesapeake Energy Arena.
