Oklahoma City Thunder's Latest Performance :
The Thunder are coming off a win against the Spurs after falling to them in double-OT. In the second matchup, they got help from their bench leading the way was Schroder, he led all scorers in the second half with 19 points on the night. He will look to continue his strong performance against his former team on Tuesday. Abdel Nader contributed with 15 points going 6-for-6 in the game. Patterson had 13 points it is great to see the Thunder bench go to work this tells us how stacked this team is. It was another day in the office for Westbrook as he made 9-of-24 shots for 24 points and added 10 rebounds, seven assists, two steals. The Thunder are now only three games back of the top seed in the West and shouldn’t have a problem going up against the Hawks.
Atlanta Hawks 's Latest Performance :
The Hawks will continue their four-game homestand against the Thunder. In their last game, the Hawks had no answer for Giannis. Leading the way for the Hawks was Trae Young as he scored 26 points and grabbed a career-high 10 rebounds. He was held to 1-of-5 shooting from deep, but went 7-of-16 from the field overall and was 11-of-13 at the line. John Collins secured yet another double-double late in the fourth and continued his stellar play in 2019 he finished the game with 13 points and 11 rebounds. Alex Len had a solid outing before fouling out he ended the game with 12 points with eight rebounds in 17 minutes of action. Playing against the Thunder will be a challenge for the Hawks if Collins doesn’t return from his injury because the Hawks doesn’t match up well with this Thunder team at all as it might be a very long night for those watching in Phillips Arena.

Against The Spread Selection: Oklahoma City Thunder
My reason for the pick :
The Thunder to pick up an easy win on the road against the Hawks. When you thought the Thunder relied only on their big three for offense their bench played a major role in the previous game against the Spurs. I expect the same thing against the Hawks Schroder will be playing inspired basketball since he is playing against his former team he should have a great game going up against Trae Young. Thunder should cover the spread on the road.
