Next Five for Thunder

Today: vs. Toronto, 6 p.m. (FSO) — One of the Thunder's worst performances this season came during a 111-99 loss at Toronto on Dec. 3.


Wednesday: vs. Utah, 7 p.m. (FSO) — Much has happened since Oct. 31, when Utah handed OKC its worst home loss of the year (120-99).

Friday: vs. Minnesota, 7 p.m. (FSO) — Thunder has won eight straight against the Timberwolves and will attempt to complete season sweep.

Sunday: vs. Portland, 7 p.m. (ESPN, FSO) — These teams last met Nov. 12. OKC leads 2-0, and there are plenty of new faces for both teams.

Tuesday, March 29: vs. Golden State, 7 p.m. (FSO) — Stephen Curry is averaging 31.0 points and 9.5 assists against Thunder this season.

TEMPERATURE GAUGE

WHO'S HOT?

Oklahoma City Thunder. In the last 10 games, the Thunder ranks first in the NBA in point differential (plus-11.9) and blocked shots (7.5); second in 3-point percentage (.409), assist differential (plus-4.2) and steals differential (plus-3.0); third in scoring (106.7), free-throw percentage (.810) and steals (9.8); tied for third in field-goal percentage (.485); and fourth in opponent 3-point percentage (.325). Even OKC's free-throw percentage “defense” ranks first (.709). Goes to show why OKC is tied with the Los Angeles Lakers for the best record in that same time span at 9-1.
