The Cleveland Cavaliers are looking to get back to their fourth straight NBA Finals. A season ago, the Cavaliers won 51 games, and were the second seed in the East. The Cavaliers had no problem going on the road and eliminating the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals. Cleveland needs to finish 23-15 to reach 50 wins for the fourth straight season.

Isaiah Thomas is back for the Cavaliers as their starting point guard. Thomas has played 6 games, and is scoring just shy of 15 per game. That is third for the Cavaliers, behind LeBron James and Kevin Love. LeBron James is scoring 2 points per game, ripping down 8 rebounds and dishing out just shy of 9 assists per game.

Thunder Looking for Fourth Straight Win

The Oklahoma City Thunder are looking to keep making a run at the Northwest Division. Coming into the game on Saturday, they are 3 games back of the Timberwolves in the Northwest Division. The Thunder beat the Hornets, Kings and Lakers after dropping three in a row. The Thunder allowed just 90 points per game in those three games.

The Thunder are led in scoring by their point guard and the defending MVP Russell Westbrook. He is scoring just shy of 25 points per game, along with 9.7 rebounds and 9.9 assists per game. Second is Paul George, who is adding 20.4 per game, and Carmelo Anthony comes in third, as he is scoring 17.6 points per game.

OKC Wins on the Road

Look for a great basketball game on Saturday. These two teams could both be playing in the NBA Finals. Sure, the Cavaliers are looking for their fourth straight, but something has not looked right with them for most of the season. Thomas coming back has not ignited them like many felt he would.

The Thunder will likely have to get by Minnesota, Houston and Golden State in that order to get to the NBA Finals. While that’s going to be tough, this is a team with some of the best talent around. The game on Saturday should be a good one – but we are taking the team playing better basketball. Bet the Oklahoma City Thunder +3.5 over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday afternoon.
