The exciting Western Conference series between the Thunder and the Clippers seems destined for seven games. Game five is slated for Tuesday night in Oklahoma City with the series tied at two games. After dropping the series opener, the Thunder won two straight before losing game four to the Clippers. Now, the series is back in Oklahoma City as the Thunder prepare to take the lead once again. We like the Thunder with the game five win.
Thunder on verge of 3-2 series lead tonight
Oklahoma City returns home Tuesday night tied in their series with Los Angeles at two games. They have the chance to regain the series lead and move to within one win of the Western Conference Finals. No team has advanced to the conference round yet. Oklahoma City took a step back in game four after leading the series 2-1, but will look to rebound from that loss with a dominating effort on Tuesday night at home.
Clippers need a repeat performance in game five
Los Angeles would love for a repeat performance in game five after dropping the Thunder by a score of 101-99 in game four to pull even in the series. If they can command the play on both sides of the court for a second straight game, then the Clippers will be able to pull ahead in the series. These two teams have already been assessed 15 technical fouls in this series, so game five should be very interesting. The game four win occurred when the Clippers overcame a 16-point deficit with 10 minutes to play.
The odds for tonight’s game five between the Clippers and the Thunder will be found at Sportsbook.ag, where the Thunder are five-point favorites at home. We are going to lay the line with 15 percent of our bankroll on the Oklahoma City Thunder Tuesday night as they grab the win and take a 3-2 lead in the series.
