OKC is playing at a high level right now as Westbrook seems to be in the zone. He has been the early frontrunner for MVP and is likely going to eat up this Miami backcourt. The Heat won’t be able to match the offensive pace Westbrook will put on with his scoring and passing, as the Thunder win their fourth straight.
