NBA FREE PICK: Take Oklahoma City. According to latest NBA trends, Oklahoma City is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games following a S.U. loss, 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games, 6-1-1 ATS in their last 8 after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game, 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS loss, 13-5-1 ATS in their last 19 vs. NBA Southwest, and 27-12-3 ATS in their last 42 vs. Western Conference.

Oklahoma City is coming off a 115-110 defeat at the hands of the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday, while Dallas handled Phoenix 109-99 on Friday night. The Mavericks begin the week in 11th place in the conference, gaining precious little ground despite winning six of their last 10 games. The club's biggest issue is a porous defense allowing 102.9 points per game, third-most in the NBA. The Mavericks have been particularly generous when facing Thunder superstar Kevin Durant. The three-time scoring champion has torched Dallas for 92 points in their past two meetings. Durant has missed just 14 games in his career. Oklahoma City has won the last eight encounters. Nowitzki has been ice-cold against the Thunder, shooting just 26.7 percent in their two meetings this season.
