Game: Oklahoma City Thunder (509) @ Atlanta Hawks (510)
Time: Monday 11/30 8:05 PM Eastern
Pick: Oklahoma City -2 (-110)
Atlanta had a magical season last year, but lost a key starter and they are just not the same team, seventh in the weak East. The Hawks have lost six of nine, getting smoked by San Antonio the last game, 108-88, as their thin bench was exposed. Their defense, so strong last year, is not the same, either, 14th in points allowed and 18th in field goal defense. The Hawks are on a 3-8 ATS run, just 2-5 against the Western Conference, and face one of the top teams in the West tonight. Oklahoma City is healthy with Kevin Durant back. He has been back for three games now and appears to have brushed off any rust remaining from his recent hamstring injury. Oklahoma City is 10th in the NBA in field goal shooting defense, No. 2 in points scored, and 11th from the free throw line. Oklahoma City is 19-7 ATS against the Hawks, including 10-2 ATS at Atlanta. Play Oklahoma City.
