Sunday NBA Action Rounds Off The Week In Style
If you are looking to round off the week in great style, the NBA has a number of great games for basketball fans to enjoy. There were a few games on Saturday that brought excitement and hopefully a few wins but Sunday has a great range of games for all basketball lovers.
The Nets won in Indiana, defeating the Pacers by a score of 111-123 while the Suns grabbed an away day victory over the Rockets, winning by 102-117. The Warriors had a home win against the Jazz, winning by 106-91. The Bulls slipped to defeat in Detroit, with the Pistons winning by 107-91. The Grizzlies also grabbed a great win, defeating the Trail Blazers by a score of 86-97.
Miami Heat @ Oklahoma City Thunder
Russell Westbrook continues to show excellent form for the Oklahoma City Thunder and he will need to continue in this form given that the team will be without Kevin Durant for the rest of the season. This devastating news was delivered on Friday, the same day that the Thunder defeated the Atlanta Hawks by a score of 123-115.
It is not as though the Thunder is the only team having to survive without a key man because the Heat are going to be without Chris Bosh for the remainder of the season.
The Heat hold a 32-36 record this season and this includes a road record of 15-18. The Heat have won their last three games, including a Friday night win against the Denver Nuggets by a score of 108-91. The Heat have a 7-3 record in their last 10 games.
The Thunder also hold a 7-3 record in their last 10 games with two wins in a row. The Thunder have a 39-30 record this season which includes a 25-9 record at home. For average points scored, the Thunder lead by 103.4 to 95.1 while for average points allowed, the Heat lead 97.0 to 100.7.
Both sides have injury concerns over and above their key players missing for the rest of the campaign. The Heat are possibly without James Ennis and Josh McRoberts while the Thunder are likely to be without Serge Ibaka while Nick Collison and Enes Kanter are being closely monitored.
Taking the Thunder at -3.5 handicap, with odds of 1.90, is likely to be a sensible bet for this Sunday clash. Bet Now!
