The Thunder are back in action following an emotional OT win over the Trail Blazers less than 24 hours ago. Will OKC have anything left in the tank?

These Clippers will look far different from their previous version, as the great Bobi & Tobi Show has headed east to Philly. Yet the Clippers, despite everyone thinking they would fall out of contention, have held steady at the bottom of the West playoff seedings, and will likely hold onto that spot as they keep winning.

Since the Thunder’s energy stores will be on short display tonight, it will be imperative that Billy Donovan get some better production from his bench — Dennis Schroder, Abdel Nader, Nerlens Noel, and perhaps even Deonte Burton may have a role to play tonight.

Last but not least, keep an eye out for Patrick Beverley. Russell Westbrook has been feeling a little too feisty lately, and Bev is just the kind of guy to use that against OKC.

Can the Thunder turn-two?
