The Thunder concluded a brutal road trip by going 3-2 and then 2-0 over the Utah Jazz. The team is quickly realizing that all other teams are setting their sites on OKC and bringing their best. It is a new perch for the Thunder to be sitting, but one that I'm sure they will use to grow and get better.
