The Cavaliers vs. Thunder live stream online and televised 2016 NBA game will highlight the Saturday schedule with two of the NBA’s best teams and several of its best all-around players in action. Right now, Cleveland continues to lead the Eastern Conference with a record of 39-14, with Toronto about four games behind them. Oklahoma City is still a factor in the West, ranking third behind Golden State and San Antonio at 40-15. The game features a rematch of the superstars from the NBA Finals in which LeBron James’ Miami team dismantled Durant and Westbrook’s young Thunder team. Will OKC pick up an important home victory or will King James continue his dominance? The 2016 NBA live streaming online and TV coverage comes via ABC and ESPN.
According to ESPN.com in their Feb. 20 report, new Cavs acquisition Channing Frye is still not cleared to play for his new team yet. Frye reportedly did not accompany the Cavaliers to Oklahoma City for Sunday’s game and is continuing to go through necessary medical exams. While he previously missed the 2012-13 season due to a heart condition, Cavs head coach Tyronn Lue said there’s “no concern at all” that Frye won’t play for the team. The former Magic forward comes to the team bringing averages of just over five points, three rebounds and about a half a block per game. Also doubtful to play on Sunday will be Iman Shumpert as the Cavs guard has a sprained left shoulder he suffered in a win over the Bulls this past Thursday.
The Thunder enter this game off a close home loss to Paul George and the Indiana Pacers. In the matchup, guard Monta Ellis scored 27 for Indiana which was able to overcome a seven-point deficit with three minutes remaining. Kevin Durant put in 31 points while grabbing eight rebounds and his teammate Russell Westbrook had 23 points to go with a career-high 18 assists. Serge Ibaka also had a double-double with 12 points and 11 boards. The Thunder continue to hold that third place spot in the Western Conference standings, with the Clippers about four games behind them. OKC is also about six games or so behind San Antonio for the No. 2 spot in the West.
Vegas odds makers first listed Oklahoma City as four-point favorites in Sunday’s home game, but the line has dropped about a point at several sports books. The moneyline has the Thunder at -150 while the underdog Cavs are +130. The over/under points total is currently around 215 points for the complete game. On the season, Cleveland is 24-28-1 against the spread and 13-13 ATS on the road, while the Thunder are 21-32-2 overall ATS and 15-16-0 when playing at home. The Cavs currently have the second-best odds of any team to win the NBA Finals at 17 to 5, trailing only Golden State, while OKC is listed as a 10 to 1 favorite to win it all, ranking them fourth.
