OKC Loud Links: Love is in the Air

The Thunder take on the Timberwolves tonight at home in a classic trap game where the team has been known to let up. They just came off of an emotional win last night against the Clippers, and the big bad Heat are waiting for OKC on Sunday night. The Thunder must not forget that this is not the Wolves of seasons past; this Minnesota team is in the hunt for a playoff spot.
