The first meeting between the Thunder and Heat took place back on January 29th in Miami was the Thunder embarrassed the Miami Heat in a 112-95 road victory as a +4 point underdog. In this game Miami got off to a fast start as they go up by 18 in the first quarter only to see the Thunder rally in the final three quarters to pound the Heat. In the second and third quarter OKC outscored Miami 70-45. Kevin Durant had a monster game with 33 points and seven assists on 12 of 23 shooting. The Heat had issues in that loss with turnovers as they committed 21 in the loss. LeBron showed up with 34 points but his supporting cast let him down in defeat. Prior to that loss to OKC the Heat had dominated recent meetings with the Thunder. Miami was carrying a six game winning streak against the Thunder entering that late January game. Miami was also carrying a six game against the spread run against OKC heading into that meeting. There is talk that point guard Russell Westbrook could return for the Thunder. That could be a short term negative and long turn positive for the Thunder. Westbrook will be rusty not only shooting but conditioning and ball handling could be an issue when facing an NBA elite team for the first game after a long injury. The Heat are in good form as they have won five of their past six road games.
With our NBA Pro Basketball pick for Thursday we will play on the Miami Heat +3 points against the Oklahoma City Thunder at the sportsbooks.
