i tend to agree, although durant is going to assault them and it scares me when he can win a game single handily. i would say wolves win but durant scores over 35

with the fast phase of the wolves, i believe that durant needs time on the bench at least 3 mins per quarter.

Fully agree with everything in this thread. Over and T-Wolves for me. I see a fast pace in this game with both teams being able to get to the rim. Westbrook's underrated defense will be missed in this game. Nobody stops Durant, especially on the Wolves, so the Thunder should clear 100 easily. 208 is not a small number but I think its a bit low. Prediction: T-Wolves = 115+ pts

You don't need westbrook in this game, Reggie Jackson will abuse the nba's worst defender, Ricky Rubio

However. my point is the consistency in the 2nd half. i know that jackson got the skills. The absence of westbrook at first is not a big deal for me but when i watched the last 2 games of thunders. i conclude that, thunders is not good when westbrook is out. gonna take the risk of having the worst defender in the league. Thanks for your insight

In addition, wolves trying to get above .500 in the league.

Wolves destroyed OKC, minus westbrook, at home earlier this season.. and if it wasn't for westbrook playing and going off in okc, they would have beat okc again, had looked superior thru 3 qtrs that game too.  minnesota is the play, wait for a better number. coming from a HUGE Thunder fan, and I've never bet against my team. Will now.

wolves scorers: K LOVE 26.3 ppg, PEK, K-MART, BAREA
thunders scorers: DURANT 28 ppg, IBAKA, REGGIE and LAMB

that's all the glitz and glitter of this matchup.   Home team has won the last six games-- three at minnesota and three at OKC.   no westbrook.  

Wolves are ready!

Close game but Thunder will emerge on top. They won't lose 3 in a row. Book it.

i really want to believe in you, but as far as i can see their performance without westbrook. my mind told me that 70% of my money must fade the thunders.

As an individual person, i can't assure you this one but i've got the instinct that this would be fun and will give you $$$$$ 

The ball is round, anything can happen

While Westbrooks underrated defense will be missing, so will his rebounding and ability to get out in transition. No one comes close to his ability to accelerate down the court. Playing a fast tempo game would also play into the hands of MINN. Cant see why Scott Brooks would want to do that after two losses rather than slow the pace down and regroup. Minnesota's bigs are something OKC will also have to adjust to. Second chance points will be very limited imo. OKC didnt crack the 100 point mark vs a BK squad without Lopez and a horrible rebounding team like Portland.

Under 208

I wouldnt be surprised if OKC won straight up but if they do it will be with a huge defensive effort. Im staying away from Minnesota.

tough matchup here for thunder but elite teams (Heat, Pacers, OKC, Spurs) tend to make-up way better whenever they lost by 2 straight. One thing you can see with these teams, they can play offense and they can play bigtime defense! and that is what the thunders are planning to do to win here, focus more on their defense. I like the thunder is this game, when you have a superstar like Durant and without a clear defender on the side of Wolves that can handle him. Love can be guarded by Ibaka. I say Durant will make a 4th quarter run and will close out this game, pretty close game I should say. Anyway, BOL

durant is really in a different level.. he stands out together with lebron. they can dominate a game anytime and close it out even without their fellow stars. nice game it was and Durant will be the MVP if he can continue leading his team.
