Climate control. Do you bet on the Heat or the Thunder? In this National Basketball Association match-up we find the Oklahoma City Thunder at home taking on the Miami Heat. The game will be played on Sunday, January 30, 2011 at the Oklahoma City Arena. The banged up Heat come in with an overall record of 32-14 and 15-9 on the road. Currently, several key players are questionable for the game. Chris Bosh is most likely out for the game and Dwayne Wade is listed as questionable. The Thunder have their roster intact and have an overall 30-16 record and are 17-6 at home. Both teams have won five of their last ten games.

Thunder Preview

The entire offense of the Thunder seems to find its way through the hands of Kevin Durant. He is leading the team and the NBA in scoring at 28.8 points per game. He can put the ball on the floor and score as well as rebound his position. Guard Russell Westbrook leads the team is assists with 8.5 per game and he has a steal rate of 1.9 per game. Serge Ibaka is the leader in three categories for the Thunder. He rebounds 6.9 per game, shoots at 56% from the field and blocks 2 shots per game.

Tips and Predictions for Thunder/Heat

These are two very good teams with some awesome offensive players. The Heat may be a bit crippled in that regard if Bosh and Wade are not their at the opening tip. Monitor the status of these players. At press time they had traveled with the team to Oklahoma City. LeBron is arguably the best player in the NBA but he alone can not stop Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder at their home court. The Thunder win this game but not before without a struggle. The odds courtesy of Centrebet and the oddsmakers are playing the waiting game to see if everyone is healthy. At 12 hours before tip-off and nothing is shaking.
