The Bucks have been a little back-and-forth this season and now coming off a win. Oklahoma City has been playing well for the past two weeks and will have the best player on the floor in Westbrook. In a game that could be close, I like the team with the best player. That is OKC. I’m going with the Thunder and the points.
