If the OKC Thunder play the way they are capable of playing, they should come away with a victory on the road. The differences between games 1 and 2 have highlighted Oklahoma City’s biggest weakness: inconsistency. Who knows which Thunder team we see in this game. Let’s hope for one that snags the series advantage and goes up 2-1.
