Wednesday: at Philadelphia, 6 p.m. (FSOK) – Once running away with the Atlantic Division, the Sixers have lost five straight while the Thunder has won five straight and leads Northwest Division by nine games.

Thursday: at Orlando, 7 p.m. (TNT) – Too bad this wasn't the first game after the break so the Thunder could have joined their All-Stars in town afterward. OKC won its season-opener against the Magic.

Saturday: at Atlanta, 6 p.m. (FSOK) – Already without center Al Horford for the regular season after pectoral surgery, Hawks are hoping All-Star guard Joe Johnson is able to come back from knee ailment.

Monday: vs. Dallas, 7 p.m. (NBA TV, FSOK) – Another chance for OKC to show how it stacks up against the world champions. Thunder puts 12-game home winning streak and 15-1 home record on the line.

March 7: vs. Phoenix, 7 p.m. (FSOK) – OKC beat the Suns on New Year's Eve. Thunder led wire-to-wire and sat its starters the entire fourth quarter. Better game was OKC starters vs. bench. Starters won 54-53.
