NBA FREE PICK: Take Oklahoma City. According to latest NBA Trends, the Thunder are 16-5 ATS in the last 21 meetings, 8-3 ATS L11 Sunday games, 6-1 ATS L7 home games, 6-1-2 ATS L9 following a SU win. Hawks are 1-6 ATS L7 on the road in series. The Thunder are loaded again this season. After a very tough loss at San Antonio in their opener, they bounced back in a big way, defeating an underrated Portland squad, by 14. At home, Oklahoma City feeds off the energy of the crowd. They take on an Atlanta team that had to replace Joe Johnson, Jamal Crawford and Marvin Williams. Now they'll be without star forward Josh Smith, a great defender, who has an ankle sprain. The Thunder should have their way inside without the lanky Smith patrolling the lane.
