NBA Playoff Matchup: Oklahoma City Thunder at Golden State Warriors

NBA Betting Pointspread: Warriors -7

Total: 218 points

Their only nine teams in the history of the NBA who have come back from a 3-1 deficit in games to win a playoff series, and the Golden State Warriors can join them on Monday night they come up with a victory against the Oklahoma City Thunder. They rallied in the fourth quarter for a 108-101 victory that was filled with drama in Game 6, and now they are the favorites on their home floor, while Oklahoma City might have to go back to the drawing board for some solutions after their two superstars got them into hot water. Game time is 9 PM ET at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, and BetAnySports customers to have the opportunity to place wagers even after the opening tip, as they partake in real-time action through the state-of-the-art software available with Live Betting Ultra.

Klay Thompson, Steph Curry’s partner in the backcourt, nailed eleven three-pointers on Saturday, establishing a new NBA playoff record. He and Curry combined for 70 points on just 51 field-goal attempts, and amazingly enough, the Warriors shot more triples than two-pointers. Meanwhile, Oklahoma City threw up a lot of bricks, and it was mostly courtesy of Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, who made 20 out of their 58 combined field-goal attempts (34.5%). Since they were taking 64% of the total shots from the floor, this became a problem. So did butter-fingers toward the end of the game, as between them they committed six turnovers over the last three minutes, something that provided a lot of chances for the defending world champions.

OKC does not have a lot of three-point shooting in its arsenal, truth be told, and they were a lousy 13% from long-range in Game 6. If they are going to take 23 shots from beyond the arc, they need to do much better this time. It is worth mentioning that they gobbled up 16 offensive rebounds, and that is one strength they can point to against the Warriors in this game, as they achieved a 52-28 advantage as far as points in the paint were concerned.

They have gotten some decent offensive production from big men like Steven Adams and Serge Ibaka, who have combined to score 22 points per game. But they will need more from the bench; Dion Waiters has been just a 39% shooter in this series, and the Thunder got only 11 points out of their reserves on Saturday. Golden State actually had fewer points off the bench (10), but BetAnySports patrons know they are capable of much more production than that.

One player who is most certainly worth watching is Andrew Bogut, the Golden State center, who played 27 more minutes in Game 6. He once again stayed out of foul trouble, which is obviously good news, and even though he did not match the numbers he had in Game 5 (15 points, 14 rebounds), his presence is very worthwhile on both ends of the floor.

Currently Golden State is listed as the favorite to eventually win the NBA title, priced at -119 at BetAnySports USA Sportsbook, you can get reduced juice wagering on all of your NBA action, as well as great free play bonuses.
