I knew it would take a few weeks to get the thunder into a decent rhythm with westbrook... after returning from the break and losing 3 straight the thunder rebounded with a 3 game winning streak covering 2-3 with a push in the fold as well... with plenty of time to rest before they go to the staples center and play the inflated Kobeless Lakers, ( whom they closed out the 1st half of the season with a 107-103 victory in LA ) theirs no chance the thunder look pass the suns here tonight as they try to keep the momentum going for their return home match up against the Rockets on Tuesday... although the suns are 4-3 at home since the start of the 2nd half of the season the only team they have beaten with a winning record or even a record above .500 on the road in that span was the Spurs... luckily I took the Suns in that game... the win against the Spurs was SA 3rd game in 4 nights, they were w/o Parker and Leonard, they turned the ball over 18 times, they went 2-21 from behind the arch, and the came at the tale end of the Spurs annual 9 games in 18 days road rodeo... after goin 10-3 in December they went 9-7 to start the year off in January followed by a 6-6 campaign in February... 5 days into March and the suns are 1-1 going into a match up with the red hot thunder... do we see where this is headed ? after OKC they get a couple nights off but it doesn't get any easier when they play back to back in Golden State and LA @ the Clippers...13 games left this month for the Suns... after the Clippers the Suns play 10 games against eastern conference teams... Raptors, Nets, Hawks, and Wizards are some of the better eastern teams the Suns will travel to play and they all have good home records while the Suns are just 14-13 on the road ( just over .500 )on the up-side for the Suns they get the Cavs, Knicks, Magic, and Pistons who have a combined road records of 33-87 who will travel to Phoenix in that 10 game span. with 22 games remaining in the regular season the suns will play 14 of those match ups away from home... I believe the suns will go 6-16 during that streach... the slide starts now... they lose 3 in a row which makes the return home game against the Cavs very intense and almost a must win game if my prediction is right about their next 3... if the Suns start this month off 1-4 they'll go 6-16 the rest of the way... I know this was way too much info and research but darn it I do this everyday because I love sports and I love analyzing games and situations in addition to stat watching ATS etc. I got the Thunder tonight . only 1 home dog covered last night so I got short history repeating itself, Heat ml, Thunder -6, Clippers -10.5 but what do I know ?

This is strictly a numbers bet[other post]

* I know PHX does not match up with OKC..few teams do.

*good input>>Large

*Dragic missed practice Wednesday due to a left side strain but expects to play Thursday against the Thunder.

*If Drag is not in the lineup>>bet is off!!

Large u don't think Spurs at home is good choice?  But they did win big the other night n heats loss so  heat might get the win tonight? Lakers double digit under Dogs at home? Are we going against double dogs at home?

Looking at the last ten games OKC has played, there is no denying that the Westbrook/Durant duo is improved and firing well.  However, they impress on a minimal level IMO.  Break down the last ten logically:
Philly - garbage
Char-  improved but still bottom half, even third of the NBA
Mem- decent, but if it was in Mem OKC would of lost
Clev- improved, but still kinda suck, and OKC lost @ home to them
LAC- lost to them, tons of points at home given up
Miami-  OKC completely got destroyed in that game
LAL- squeaked out a win at the Staples Center
Port- A team that cant play D and OKC only managed 98 with a 3 pt win
NYK- really?
ORL- at home and still lost to a terrible squad (5 magic in double digits)

So they may be good, but struggled against better quality teams.  Phoenix has a long way to go, but they are fighting for playoff position where as OKC can lay an egg the rest of the way and still cruise into the playoffs.  Phoenix at home is a better team, as are most teams in the NBA.  Dragic should be a go.  Laying 6 on the road against a decent team? IMO I'm on the Suns.

Suns +6

money comes pouring in on the OKC but the line barely moves.  Enough for me to stay away or make a small play on PHX.

Westbrook and Durant just horrible last 3:30 min. of the game when it counted....can't even get the moneyline.

OKC is a  s h I t  defensive team really....it's why they're title pretenders...have zero chance if they meet the Heat in the finals.

When the Caron Butler (of now) is taking meaningful shots for you at the end of a close game....you know your team is declining.
