Listen up, hoop heads! The basketball gods have blessed us with a David versus Goliath showdown tonight, and we’re not talking about a rerun of the biblical epic. No sir, we’re talking about the red-hot Oklahoma City Thunder, who’ve been thundering their way through the Western conference like a herd of caffeinated bison, squaring off against the Toronto Raptors at the Scotiabank Arena. Now, the Raptors might be more akin to a pack of baby velociraptors in the Eastern conference, but hey, every underdog has its day, right? These two teams are set to lock horns at the prime time of 7PM EST, and let’s just say, the betting lines are looking as lopsided as a seesaw with Shaq on one end. The over/under’s hovering around 231.5, with the Thunder at -15.0 (no surprise there) and the Raptors at 15.0. Now, the Raptors might be nursing a hangover from their 89-123 spanking at the hands of SAC, but the Thunder are still basking in the afterglow of their 119-107 victory over UTA. So buckle up, folks! Tonight, we find out if the Thunder’s lightning strikes twice, or if the Raptors can claw their way to an upset.
