After back-to-back blowout wins, the Oklahoma City Thunder sit on the precipice of the second round. This would mark the OKC Thunder's first playoff series win since 2016.

ODDS: 

The Thunder enter the day as 4.5-point favorites against the New Orleans Pelicans, and the total over/under is 204.5 points.

KEYS TO THE GAME: 

The OKC Thunder are nearing a series sweep against the New Orleans Pelicans. The biggest key to this contest will be forcing Willie Green to rip the first timeout this game has to offer. A quick start will deflate an already dejected Pelicans squad and crush any mustered juice squeezed out of this depleted squad.

With a massive Josh Giddey game - who always performs well in New Orleans - the Thunder can put this series on ice and celebrate their first series win since 2016.

Oklahoma City will need to continue their trend of tenacious defense - without getting complacent OKC can again limit a lackluster New Orleans offensive attack to a sub-100 point game. The Pelicans have yet to crack above 92 points much less triple-digits.

How many minutes does Jonas Valanciunas play? There is no good answer for New Orleans. Either lean all in on Larry Nance Jr. - as they did Saturday - and lose any semblance of depth, or let Jonas Valanciunas get cooked alive by the versatile Thunder troops.
