OKC Thunder | Game #26 Preview: Bucks

Tonight, the Thunder is finally back at Chesapeake Energy Arena for a short 2-game homestand as they host the Milwaukee Bucks. The Bucks are second in the Eastern Conference, and they have lost their last 2 in a row. Milwaukee has lost 2 consecutive games just three times this season, and they haven’t lost a third in a row, which makes this one perhaps all the more difficult for OKC.

OKC Thunder | Game #20 Preview: Rockets

It’s only been two days, but here we are again: Thunder vs. Rockets at Chesapeake Energy Arena. The first matchup didn’t go so well for the good guys as Houston was hot from three from the get go. A 48-24 first quarter jump paced the Rockets to a 136-106 blowout over the Thunder, but OKC has a chance at redemption after just one day off.

The Thunder Lowdown | Game #9: So Much for Tanking

The Oklahoma City Thunder wrapped up a 5-game road trip on Sunday night as they knocked off Kevin Durant and the Brooklyn Nets 129-116 at Barclays Center. Tanking does not seem to be on the agenda as the victory moves the Thunder to 5-4 on the season, and they continue to win games they probably have no business even competing in.

The Thunder Lowdown | Game 3: Magic Too Much for Thunder

The Oklahoma City Thunder picked up right where they left off last night as they hosted the undefeated Orlando Magic in the second game of a back-to-back Tuesday night. Despite playing within single digits for pretty much the entire game, OKC dropped to 1-2 as they were unable to hold on as Orlando grabbed a 118-107 win to move to 4-0.

Thunder Drops Final Seeding Game to Clips in OT

The Oklahoma City Thunder (44-28) did not finish out their final seeding game in the manner that they would have liked as they came up short in overtime to lose 107-103 to the Los Angeles Clippers (49-23). Both teams gave heavy minutes to their benches as key players got some rest ahead of the playoffs, and in spite of the loss, the Thunder looks to be ready to kick off Round 1 next week.
