Greg Frank's NBA Pick of the day: Thunder vs Lakers

Thunder (+6) @ Lakers (218) tips off at 6:30 pm EDT

Greg Frank’s NBA re-start record: 2-4 (1-2 yesterday)

Thunder (+6) @ Lakers (218) — 6:30 pm EDT

Pick: Thunder +6

This is a layup for us. You could basically take clone our Nets-Bucks handicap from yesterday and apply it to this game. The Thunder are jockeying for playoff positioning in a muddled Western Conference after the Lakers. The purple and gold have clinched the top seed in the West. The top priority for both the Bucks and Lakers is to now get to the postseason healthy and ready to chase the Larry O’Brien Trophy. After Milwaukee lost outright as an 18.5-point favorite yesterday against Brooklyn, don’t be surprised if Los Angeles suffers the same fate as a much shorter favorite. We’re on the Thunder catching six here and would recommend sprinkling the money line at better than 2-1.
