The Thunder have won six of their last 10 games and also covered the spread in six of those 10 contests. They had their three-game winning streak snapped by the Cavs on Sunday, as they were routed 107-91 as a 7.5-point road underdog. Russell Westbrook did post his league-leading 24th triple-double of the season, racking up 20 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists.

The Spurs are 6-4 over their last 10 but are just 5-5 against the spread over that same span. They have now lost back-to-back games, dropping a 119-103 decision at New Orleans last week and then fell 105-101 to the Mavericks on Sunday. LaMarcus Aldridge finished 16 points, seven rebounds and four assists, hitting 5-of-14 from the field. Tony Parker also added 16 points with four assists in 23 minutes.
