The Oklahoma City Thunder plays the 2nd of a three-game NBA road trip Thursday night when OKC visits the Golden State Warriors at 9:30pm our time in Oakland. With three victories in their final four regular season games, the Thunder could reach the coveted 60-win mark for the season, which would be a franchise “first” since coming to Oklahoma City from Seattle.

OKC (57-21) enters the game against the Warriors off that 90-80 road win at Utah Tuesday night to keep pushing San Antonio for the top seed in the Western Conference. The Spurs (57-21) held Denver to a season low 11 points in the first quarter Wednesday night, but Denver rallied big-time for a 96-86 win, the Nuggets franchise-record 21st straight home victory.  And with the loss, the Spurs fall into a TIE with the Thunder for the top seed in the West. If the season ended today, the Thunder would earn the #1-seed because they have a better record against the Western Conference teams than San Antonio does, trying to improve on their half-game lead over the Thunder.

The Thunder game against Golden State will be nationally televised on TNT and locally carried on Fox Sports Oklahoma.
