Injury Report: Nets guard Jeremy Lin is out for the season after suffering a ruptured patellar tendon in the season opener. The Thunder have no one on their injury report.
Who The Trends Like: Brooklyn is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings in Oklahoma City and 5-2 ATS in the last seven meetings overall. The Thunder are 5-1 ATS in their last six games after scoring 125 points or more in their previous contest.
Who We Like: Oklahoma City has begun to hit its stride, winning four in a row including a dominant 148-124 triumph Sunday at the Cavaliers. The Thunder, however, sometimes have a tendency to mail it in against lesser opponents or after a big victory. This contest qualifies, especially against a Nets team that has won two in a row at home versus the Heat and at the Pistons. I'm going to confidently state that Brooklyn manages to keep it within the number tonight with energy from Rondae Hollis-Jefferson providing a boost for his entire team.
