Atlanta Hawks (20-47) vs. Oklahoma City Thunder (39-29)

When and Where: Tuesday, March 13, Atlanta, Georgia, 7.30 PM EST

The Philips Arena in Atlanta will be the battling ground of second Hawks’ matchup in last three days as Oklahoma City Thunder comes to the city on Tuesday. The Hawks haven’t been really successful on Sunday against the Bulls, but that has been the frontline of this season for this team. Recently they’ve become the first team in the Eastern Conference that lost the theoretical chance of appearing in the postseason. The Thunder on the other side is coming off from a home win over San Antonio but they’ll play a game with Sacramento on Monday before traveling to Atlanta.

The Thunder eager to sweep the Hawks

The Oklahoma City Thunder took down the Hawks in their first duel this season at home on December 22 last year, and the sweep-off is looming against the team that has nothing left to fight for this year. Every win for the 39-29 Thunder until the end of the season will be very valuable, having in mind the fact that they are just 1.5 games above the no-postseason line (37-30 Denver Nuggets). The team scores 106.7 points per game (13th in the NBA) and allows 103.7 points to their opponents (7th in the league).

Russell Westbrook tops the team across the board with 25.3 points, 9.6 rebounds and 10.1 assists per contest. Paul George who gets team-high 2.1 steals per game is the second-best scorer with 22 points per game, while Carmelo Anthony posts 16.7 points per matchup. Other notable contributors are center Steven Adams with 13.8 and Jerami Grant with 8.0 points on average. In a win over the Spurs, Westbrook led the team with a triple-double performance (21 points, 12 rebounds, 10 assists).

The Hawks trying to avoid fourth straight loss

The Atlanta Hawks should try to quickly forget the 2017-18 season as it will be remembered as one of the worse in team’s history. Being the top-bottom ranked team in the 16-squads Conference is not something to be proud off and hopefully, the fans will have enough understanding of this roster and coaches. The squad scores 103.6 points per game (22nd in the NBA) and allows 108.6 points per contest to their opponents (23rd in the league).

On the individual stat sheet, point guard Dennis Schroder tops the team in scoring and passing with 19.2 points and 6.1 assists per game. Kent Bazemore and Taurean Prince keep pace with 12.9 points per contest each while John Collins adds third-best 10.3 points per matchup. Dewayne Redmon and John Collins are team’s defensive leaders with an average of 7.4 and 7.9 rebounds per clash. In Sunday’s loss to the Bulls, Taurean Prince led the team with 38 points while Mike Muscala added 19 points from the bench.

Trends:

Oklahoma City:

  • 2-6 ATS in their last eight games vs. NBA Southeast.
  • 1-4 ATS in their last five road games.
  • 0-6 O/U in their last six meetings in Atlanta.

Atlanta:

  • 6-1 ATS in their last seven games vs. NBA Northwest.
  • 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games vs. Western Conference.
  • 1-5 O/U in their last six games playing on one day rest.

The line will probably favor the Thunder greatly but we’re not expecting a blow-out here, giving the Hawks an ATS edge. On the other side, Totals segment might be the much safer option as both teams share a couple of low-scoring trends applicable to today’s matchup and that’s where your money should go primarily. Pick Under.

The Pick: Atlanta Hawks / Under
