Thursday’s game between the Oklahoma City Thunder (39-24 SU, 33-30 ATS) and the Portland Trail Blazers (39-24 SU, 37-26 ATS) looks like a close one on paper. However, the Blazers are on a roll right now, while the Thunder have been struggling. TNT will provide the coverage from Moda Center starting at 10:30 PM ET.

The Trail Blazers have won six of their last seven games at a perfect 7-0 ATS since losing 120-111 to the Thunder on February 11 as 5-point road dogs. Oklahoma City have followed up that victory with just two wins in their last seven games, going 0-7 ATS in the process. That’s partly because of Paul George; he’s missed the last three games with a sore right shoulder, and is listed as day-to-day.
The Blazers have been without Evan Turner (left knee) for the past five games, and his status for Thursday remains up in the air at press time. Enes Kanter is back in uniform after missing Friday’s game in Toronto because of travel concerns; Kanter has played in five games for Portland since getting waived by the New York Knicks in early February, putting up 21.4 points, 14.2 rebounds and 3.4 assists per 36 minutes.
