NBA Betting: West Finals – Game 6: GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS at OKLAHOMA CITY THUNDER (5/28)

West Finals – Game 6
GOLDEN STATE at OKLAHOMA CITY

(America’s Bookie Line: Thunder -3, Total 220.5) — So much of Golden State’s success on Thursday surrounded their ability to control things in the lane with Andrew Bogut, who had 15 points and 14 rebounds. That was out of the ordinary for him, so we wonder whether he can go a strong 30 minutes again. That may be okay, because Draymond Green has come alive, with 13 rebounds (five on offense) and four blocks. Sooner or later, Steph Curry and Klay Thompson have to get sharper at the same time from the outside, and the Warriors have more lineup flexibility with their bench. Remember that the Golden State defense was able to force Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook into some bad shots (39% combined) and they wouldn’t mind letting those guys dominate the ball and generate high “Usage’ rates if they can. This is a rare spot to be able to take Golden State plus points (only the fifth time this season, in fact).
