With this game, we immediately are drawn to the ‘over’. Four of the last five meetings in this series have resulted in games going past the ‘total’, including a 149-140 overtime game last year that easily eclipsed the number of 210. Oklahoma City has won 12 games in a row, and in all but one of those 12 games, it has scored at least 100 points. Yes, the defense has played formidable ball in that stretch as well, but the truth of the matter is that Minnesota should be able to at least remotely stick around and not get its doors totally blown off. If that’s the case, we have to remember that before going to the Sunshine State, where both the Orlando Magic and Miami Heat shut them down, the T’Wolves had scored at least 108 points in three straight games. G Ricky Rubio is back in the fold, and he has had a couple of games under his belt and a couple of days off at this point, and that’s only going to make this offense all the more efficient. We really don’t see a way that this one doesn’t get to at least 200.
Thunder @ Timberwolves Pick: Over 198
Thunder @ Timberwolves Prediction: Thunder 106 – Timberwolves 102
