Normally speaking, when the Nuggets are playing at home, especially when they are in such a tight and important game as this one is, we’re all over them. Tonight though, we’re going to go after the ‘over’ instead, knowing that there really should be no way that this one doesn’t get into at least the 220s or the 230, and maybe even a heck of a lot more. We’ll start with recent history. The two meetings this year reached 239 and 214 points, and both games flew past the ‘total’. Oklahoma City has scored 119, 102, 127, and 119 points in its last four games, and in those outings, it is shooting a blistering 51.7 percent from the field. Denver’s last four games have featured 111, 119, 113, and 113 points, and it has made at least 44 shots from the floor in three straight games. These types of shooting percentages don’t happen on accident. There’s no way that we can do anything but play the ‘over’ until we see either of these two teams calm down. This should be a track meet from the get go, and it wouldn’t surprise us if this one looked more like an All-Star Game than an NBA regular season game in March.
Thunder @ Nuggets Pick: Over
Thunder @ Nuggets Prediction: Nuggets 124 – Thunder 121
