Minnesota at Tulsa
Saturday 07/13 08:05 PM Eastern
1 unit on Game Total UNDER 160 -105 (risk 1 to return 1) RESULT: LOSS
Things just simply have not worked out for this Tulsa team since moving from Detroit. At 3-12, they have once again failed to show any upward movement. They have dropped their last five, and what has become an issue now is a struggling offense that has failed to reach 70 points in three of the five games. Minnesota sits atop the standings in the West at 10-3, but are also one game behind in the loss column to Atlanta - the leader in the East. Minnesota wants home-court advantage throughout the playoffs, so this won't be a throw away game. Minnesota plays defense, and against conference opponents that have played to a 7-1 UNDER mark in their last eight, as well as five straight to the UNDER in their last five on the road overall. The Lynx will come out early on the defensive end to diffuse the will of the Shock, who are struggling offensively as it is. Play the UNDER.
