The Thunder dominated the Derrick Rose-less Bulls yesterday and sits just one game behind the Bulls now for the League’s best record. They come into tonight riding a six game winning streak in which they have beaten the leagues upper crust including Miami, both Los Angeles squads and the Bulls. All of the wins during the streak have come by 9 points or more as the Thunder really make their mark among the league’s elite. The Grizzlies also come into the game on a bit of a roll having won three of their last four. Two of the wins in that stretch have come on the road vs. Milwaukee and the Lakers.
While the Thunder has been on an absolute roll we are thinking the Grizzlies in this one with the points may be a good option. The Grizzlies have played the Thunder tough in recent times and we expect that to continue. We were expecting a good game anyway and when we saw the amount of points the Grizzlies were getting we were comfortable pulling the trigger with a bet at online sportsbooks.
