Oklahoma City Thunder against the Cleveland Cavalierss – or almost certain playoff participant from the west against the penultimate table in the weaker east anyway. Sounds like a clear matter and it will probably happen. The hosts had a very difficult game plan in January. No franchise in the NBA occurred more frequently, and the majority of them abroad.
Oklahoma City Thunder vs Cleveland Cavaliers NBA Betting Tips
The fact that the end result with twelve wins and five bankruptcies turned out to be very positive is a huge achievement. OKC is still only in seventh place in the west, but the placement is deceptive of the danger of missing the postseason.
The gap to the direct pursuers is already a whopping five more wins on the Grizzlies and even seven in the case of the Blazers. Oklahoma therefore has to look less in the rear view mirror and can slide even higher. Here the distances are much smaller.
In the case of the Cavs, it can again be expected that the tanking mode will soon be switched to. Not much will go this season. In addition, various names of top performers such as Kevin Love are currently being traded as potential trade candidates in the winter transfer window, which of course does not promote the team spirit.
In the upcoming duel between City Thunder and Cavalierss, the tip is aimed at the particularly formidable Dennis Schröder and a scoring value of more than 20.5 points. Although there was only one start in the season, the German fulfills his role as “Sixth Man” more and more.
The Point Guard from Braunschweig has an impressive series of seven games with more than 20 points. Tip-off in the Chesapeake Energy Arena on February 6th. The Oklahoma vs. Cleveland prediction is played with four units.
Oklahoma City Thunder – Statistics & current form
Although there are currently some trade rumors surrounding Dennis Schröder, the Knicks are said to have particularly looked at him, but on the other hand, this is not a completely new topic. It seems unlikely that the Point Guard wants to put up with traditional New York chaos as the next step in their careers.
In any case, he plays very consistently with his current employer. Although Chris Paul, who has been nominated as an all-star for the tenth time this year, is still at Eins, this does not prevent Schröder from performing regularly.
With an average of 19.1 points per game, the Welfe is at the level of his best season 2017/18, at the end of which Schröder said goodbye to the Hawks from Atlanta in the direction of Oklahoma. After a rather below-average start to the season, his shape curve has been pointing upwards since December.
The trend has long since ceased to be one, but Schröder is constantly at a very high level. Although you can be satisfied in the Cinderella City so far, the balance in front of your backdrop has not been better compared to the guest performances. With 15 wins and ten bankruptcies, it is rather identical.
Nevertheless, the master from 1979 is of course the clear favorite in our eyes against the stumbling guests. At Oklahoma vs Cleveland are therefore a good idea for a clear home win with at least twelve points difference.
Cleveland Cavalierss – Statistics & current form
Cleveland travels to Oklahoma with a losing streak of four games in his gym bag. First, the defensive is weak: 114 points per 100 possessions. This poor record is only topped by the Washington wizards with an additional “1” after the decimal point.
In the latest basement duel with the Knicks, it was only lost after extra time, but those who don’t hit the Knicks usually know how bad things are going for themselves. Another evidence of the desolate condition was the previous match against the bottom of the table in the west in the form of the still decimated Warriors.
Against the former series champion, it set a 112: 131 blowout in front of its own backdrop. In addition to the lack of quality in the squad, the replacement of the coach chair was a bet that has so far not worked. John Beilein, who had previously only trained college teams, was hired for the very young team.
The idea behind it was that basketball hunters from “Forest City” were given a coach who was particularly experienced in dealing with youngsters, but his equally lacking experience with the type of basketball in the NBA seems to be a too significant negative factor. On top, the Ohio franchise had to accept failures again and again.
For example, long-term rookie Dylan Windler is missing. The use of the Tristan Thompson Center is also currently questionable. The Texan would be missing especially in the already weak defensive mentioned, since Thompson comes up with the ninth best rebound rate in the NBA.

The positive season of Oklahoma so far was not to be expected with regard to the departures last summer. After all, Russell Westbrook (Houston) and Paul George (Clippers) were the two faces of the franchise.
But the newcomers, such as the recently double-digit All-Star participant Chris Paul or the just 21-year-old Shai Gilgeous-Alexander immediately closed the gaps. The latter combo guard last month, for example, each marked 20 points and rebounds and ten assists against the T-Wolves from Minnesota.
Key Facts – Oklahoma City Thunder vs Cleveland Cavaliers tips
⛹🏽♂️ The Cavs produce the most turnovers per game (14.5)
⛹🏽♂️ Oklahoma clearly won the only season game against Cleveland so far
⛹🏽♂️ The guests rank second to last in the Eastern Conference
This made the Canadian the youngest player in the history of the NBA with such an impressive triple double. Instead of a rebuild, as was suspected in many places before the season, OKC is thus back on the postseason course. Last but not least, Dennis Schröder also ensures this.
In its second season with the franchise from the Northwest Division, the Lower Saxony is starting more and more. Since December it has had almost 50 percent of the field goals, which means that its meter yield has grown steadily. For the upcoming game between City Thunder and Cavalierss, the tip includes over 20.5 points by the Guard.
The prediction is underpinned by the very good performance of the 26-year-old in the first season game a few weeks ago against the Cavs, when he achieved the best result of his team with 22 points.
