Here is the bad news. OKC remains firmly entrenched in the 8th seed, as they missed a great opportunity to make up ground on the "We're peaking at the right time!" team from San Antonio. Furthermore, the Clippers, Trail Blazers, and Rockets also won (and Dallas won last night), which means that OKC's climb out of the 8th seed remains a difficult climb with only 10 games remaining.
Looking ahead, the Thunder have two winnable games this weekend, first facing the Jazz and then the Suns.
