Can OKC win its season-series vs. championship mainstay San Antonio?

W. Bennett Berry

Tonight, the Oklahoma City Thunder pursue a third-consecutive win while vying for regular-season supremacy vs. perennial contender San Antonio.

When these playoff-bound conference rivals last met, Oklahoma City enjoyed an unexpected 102-92 victory to halt the Spurs’ impressive nine-game winning streak.

From Chesapeake Energy Arena, Coach Billy Donovan’s crew hopes to author a similar upset vs. Greg Poppovich’s men as Russell Westbrook chases triple-double #39 of his stellar campaign.
