Is Russell Westbrook already the most exciting player in the NBA? After Kevin Durant left Oklahoma City to join Golden State in the offseason, Westbrook became the lone superstar in the Thunder offense and he hasn’t disappointed so far. Westbrook will try to notch his third straight triple-double and keep OKC undefeated when they tangle with the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday.
– Shark Bites
- The Thunder are 3-1 SU in their last four games against the Clippers.
- The total has gone UNDER in eight of the Clippers’ last 11 games with one day off between games.
- The Thunder are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games on the road against the Clippers.
Oddsmakers initially set the Clips as 7-point home faves with an OVER/UNDER of 207.
Los Angeles has also enjoyed some early season success and carries a perfect 3-0 SU and ATS record into the tilt. The Clippers are known for their powerful offense, but it’s their efforts on the defensive end that’s helped them the most so far. L.A. held Utah to 75 points on Sunday before limiting Phoenix to 36 in the first half on Monday.
All-Star center DeAndre Jordan is a crucial piece of this Clippers team, and sports bettors shouldn’t worry about the thumb he injured on Sunday. Jordan recorded 19 points, 11 rebounds and two blocks with the thumb wrapped in Monday’s game.
Oklahoma City took three of the four meetings between the squads last season, with Westbrook averaging 27 points, 12.3 assists and 7.5 rebounds. Without Durant around, expect those numbers to go up this year when the Western Conference heavyweights collide.
