NBA Betting: West Finals – Game 4: GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS at OKLAHOMA CITY THUNDER (5/24)

PRO BASKETBALL — May 24

West Finals – Game 4
GOLDEN STATE at OKLAHOMA CITY

(America’s Bookie Line: Warriors -1.5, Total 222) — The Warriors got pushed around pretty good in Game 3, as OKC scored 83 points in the second and third quarters combined. Russell Westbrook was 10 of 19 from the field, but Westbrook doesn’t shoot that way too often against this opponent, and it is not unreasonable that he could come down to earth. That means a different OKC offense, and no one would expect that the Golden State attack will get 35% shooting from its starters once again. Not that Steph Curry went all that cold (7 for 17), but there is upside there. And Klay Thompson is only 29% from the arc in the series. Draymond Green was 1-9 on Sunday and drew a flagrant for a kick to Steven Adams’ groin that could have gotten him suspended. He needs to bounce back. if he does, especially on the defensive end, that makes things more problematic for a Thunder team that is hitting only 32% of its triples over the last six meetings with the Warriors. What’s important to remember is that Golden State hasn’t lost back-to-back games yet, and they are 10-2 ATS in revenge situations. They have also held 14 of their last 16 foes under 45% from the field. And they’ve had 15 offensive rebounds in the last two games, which isn’t bad. There is simply too much here for them not to bounce back.
