Thunder vs. Bulls Live TV: TNT
Five of the last six in this series between the Thunder and the Bulls failed to reach the ‘total’, and a lot of those games never even came particularly close. Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook are both averaging over 20 points per game this year, but neither really has consistently put together those dominating efforts that we have come to expect on the offensive side of the court. Chicago doesn’t have any truly prolific scorers outside of the paint, and there is very little consistent threat for outside shooting. The problem with that? Scoring in the paint is going to be difficult with Serge Ibaka manning the paint for the Thunder. Ibaka hasn’t contributed offensively like Oklahoma City would have hoped, but he is still a shot altering beast defensively, and he should be able to really hold down whichever of the three of Joakim Noah, Carlos Boozer, or Luol Deng he ends up matched up against more often than not. This one just screams to be a game that only gets into the 180s, not the 190s.
Thunder @ Bulls Pick: Under 191
Thunder @ Bulls Prediction: Bulls 94 – Thunder 91
