NBA Asian Handicap Previews – 12th February Tuesday

Thunder v Trail Blazers

Oklahoma City will be hosting the Trail Blazers on Tuesday at Chesapeake Energy Arena. Thunder have been excellent lately with only one defeat to be mindful of out of their last eleven games.

Oklahoma City even beat the Rockets last Sunday at Toyota Center. James Harden scored 42 points that night, but Paul George went higher to make 45 to which Russell Westbrook added 21 points to lead a 117-112 Thunder win over Houston.

OKC also defeated the Grizzlies last Friday at Chesapeake Energy Arena, where Jaren Jackson Jr. made 27 points, but got equalized by Paul George with another 27 points to secure a 117-95 Thunder win over Memphis.

Oklahoma City’s only loss out of their last eleven games was a 134-129 fall to Boston on Monday last week at TD Garden. George made 37 points to top the 30 from Kyrie Irving, but not enough to frustrate the Celtics win over Thunder.

Last Monday, the Trail Blazers fell 101-102 to the Mavericks with a one point deficit at American Airlines Center, where Damian Lillard made 30 points, while Luka Doncic made 28. Portland also lost to the Heat last Wednesday at Moda Center. The 28 points and eleven rebounds from Hassan Whitehead got topped by the 33 points from CJ McCollum, but Miami won anyway.

For this match, tipters are giving a line of Oklahoma City -6.5 to Over/Under 231.

The hosts’ last win was a 105-92 fall to Milwaukee earlier this month at home, where Giannis Antetokounmpo made 19 points, while Pascal Siakam made 28 points.

The Brooklyn Nets on the other hand are in a relatively bad shape. Their latest loss was a 125-106 fall to the Chicago Bulls last Saturday at Barclays Center, where D’Angelo Russell made 23 points but got topped by 31 points shot by Lauri Markkanen.
