The Thunder really turned on the jets a couple nights ago against the Los Angeles Lakers, and they put together one of the best offensive games that we have seen a team play in quite some time from top to bottom. Sure, the Lakers went on their runs over the course of the game, but this was a no-contest when the Thunder really played the part of a team that wanted to win by a ton of points. The trip to MSG is going to be significantly more difficult, though we have to wonder whether F Carmelo Anthony is really going to be in the lineup or not after leaving the game against the Cleveland Cavaliers injured. These two teams don’t know a heck of a lot about each other, but the one thing that both share in common is the pace with which they would prefer to play. Granted, if Melo isn’t out there, the clip of the game won’t be as quick. If he is and is healthy though, there isn’t going to be much stopping what the Knicks can do on the offensive end of the court. Look for this one to come right down to the wire, and we think that as a result, the fourth quarter will send this one past the ‘total’.
Thunder @ Knicks Pick: Over 206.5
Thunder @ Knicks Prediction: Thunder 112 – Knicks 107
