OKC Thunder | Game 44: Brooklyn Nets

The Oklahoma City Thunder is ROLLING right now, winning 4 of their last 5, and looking good while they do it. All four wins have been by double digits, and the lone loss was a single-digit decision against the Miami Heat. The Thunder wraps up a 4-game road trip tonight as they take on the Brooklyn Nets.

The Nets will be playing without Kevin Durant, who suffered an MCL sprain in his right knee just a few days ago. Still, the Nets are poised to keep the train rolling. Brooklyn ran off 12 straight wins not too long ago, and they have gone 2-2 since. Still, the Nets have plenty of weapons to figure out how to win with Durant sidelined.
