NBA FREE PICK: Take Oklahoma City. According to latest NBA trends, Oklahoma City is 6-1 ATS last 7 road games and 22-8 ATS last 30 following an ATS loss. Houston is 2-6 ATS last 8 after scoring 100 or more points in their previous game and 3-9 ATS last 12 following an ATS win. 

The Thunder (63-24 SU, 51-34-2 ATS, 38-47-2 O/U) are trying to stave off the Rockets (47-40 SU, 44-42-1 ATS, 42-45 O/U), who are trying to become the first team to come from 3-0 down to win an NBA playoff series. Oklahoma City is playing without Russell Westbrook, who injured his knee in Game 2. But the Thunder came back to win Game 3, 104-101 on the road without Westbrook. The Rockets have their own injury issues as they might be without point guard Jeremy Lin (bruised chest) and guard Carlos Delfino (foot) for Game 6. Expect the Thunder to do a better job defending James Harden and forcing him to his right as well as doubling him. Kevin Durant goes for 40+ tonight as the Thunder close out the series. Oklahoma City visits Toyota Center in Houston to take on the Rockets at 9:30pmET on Friday night. 

2013 NBA FREE PICK: OKLAHOMA CITY THUNDER +1.5
