Clippers Vs. Thunder Game 2 NBA Playoff Betting Trends

The Los Angeles Clippers may have won game one in hostile territory, but its the Oklahoma City Thunder are carrying the momentum into game two after Kevin Durant’s moving MVP acceptance speech yesterday.

Midway throught the first round of the 2014 NBA playoffs no one expected the pairing of the Oklahoma City Thunder and Los Angeles Clippers in round 2.

Doc Rivers and the Clippers breathed out an emotional sigh of relief with their win against the Golden State Warriors in the first round of the playoffs. The Donald Sterling scandal may continue to hang over their heads, but getting several tough games in and surviving is all they can ask for.

Oklahoma City’s distraction came from a headline, and Kevin Durant answered the bell in dispelling the "Mr. Unreliable" label that had NBA analysts clamoring about the impending league MVP skipping town down the road. So now, maybe, it can be just about basketball.
