Salt Lake City, UT – The Oklahoma City Thunder gets closer to the end of the regular NBA season when they play the Utah Jazz tonight at 8-o’clock (Oklahoma time) in Utah. The Thunder has just five games left before the playoffs and OKC is still chasing San Antonio for the top seed in the Western Conference. Sunday’s home loss to the New York Knicks knocked the Thunder down into the number two spot behind the Spurs, but there’s still time to claim the top spot in the West, which would mean home court advantage throughout the playoffs.
Tuesday’s game is the first of three straight games away from Oklahoma City. The Thunder (56-21) will go from Utah to California for a Thursday night game at Golden State and then make the short trip to Oregon for a game at the Portland Trailblazers Friday night. The final two games of the regular season are at the Chesapeake Energy Arena downtown Monday, April 15th against Sacramento then Wednesday, April 17th against the Milwaukee Bucks.
