The Thunder & Nets hook-up in Mexico City late Thursday night and we’re backing the underdog. OKC stormed back in a win over Utah last time out, using a 32-14 fourth quarter to make-up for what had been a struggle for most of the first three quarters. But OKC failed to cover the spread again. While they have won three in a row SU, the Thunder haven’t covered a number since November 22, losing six in a row ATS. One of the main culprits is Carmelo Anthony. The former Knick is struggling with his shot, to say the least. Even in the win last time out, Carmelo made just 6 of 19 shots, including missing all five treys. Anthony is shooting a career low, 41% on the season. The problem is, he still takes too many shots and until he passes on a few looks, or starts making his attempts, he’s a detriment to this team and makes it ultra tough to back when laying this many points. Brooklyn continues to make backers money, playing competitive basketball and covering eight of their last nine games. We’re recommending a play on the Nets plus the points on Thursday. Thanks & GL!
