Dec. 23: Thunder 117, at Phoenix Suns 113

If the Thunder remains in playoff contention, a 117-113 win in Phoenix might be viewed as the most important game all season.

In danger of falling two games below .500, Oklahoma City posted a win at US Airways Center, where the Suns are 13-2 at home, including wins over the L.A. Lakers, Boston and Orlando.

OKC has posted several big road wins — at San Antonio, Miami, Utah, Memphis and Detroit — but none were as significant as a Dec. 23 win that allowed the Thunder to finish its most grueling part of the schedule 14-14.
