Next five games for the Oklahoma City Thunder

By John Rohde, Staff Writer, Published: January 7, 2012

Sunday: vs. San Antonio, 6 p.m. (FSOK, NBA TV) — Spurs without Manu Ginobili, who has a broken hand. That means more playing time for former Oklahoma State standout James Anderson.

Tuesday: at Memphis, 7 p.m. (FSOK) — Thunder plays at Memphis for the second time in less than two weeks. OKC survived 98-95 in the first go-round thanks to a clutch jumper from Kevin Durant.

Wednesday: at New Orleans, 7 p.m. (FSOK) — Busiest stretch of the schedule — five games in six days — comes to a conclusion against the New Orleans Hornets, who pound the boards hard.

Saturday: vs. New York, 7 p.m. (FSOK) — The only meeting all season against the Knicks. Tyson Chandler once (temporarily) called OKC home. He signed a four-year deal to call NYC home.

Jan. 16: at Boston, 7 p.m. (TNT) — Nationally televised Martin Luther King Day game against the Boston Celtics. This is a big-time stage and a chance for OKC to make a big-time statement.
