2012 NBA schedule: Oklahoma City Thunder play Chicago Bulls on Thursday

Mike DiNovo-US PRESSWIRE

The Oklahoma City Thunder face a tough road test against the Chicago Bulls on Thursday.

With the NBA season still young, teams are fighting for early momentum. The Oklahoma City Thunder have a chance to build some of that momentum when they travel to Chicago to face the Bulls on Thursday.

Chicago is still without Derrick Rose, but the Bulls should be able to provide a stiff challenge to the Thunder, who are trying to find themselves after a trade sent James Harden to the Houston Rockets. Chicago is off to a 2-1 start, while Oklahoma City sits at 1-1.

OKC-Chicago isn't the only marquee matchup this week. The new-look Brooklyn Nets travel to Miami Wednesday to take on the Heat. A win over the defending champs would send a message to the NBA that Deron Williams and co. are not to be taken lightly.

Also on Wednesday, a Western Conference battle will receive national attention. The Clippers and Spurs meet in Los Angeles, and the game will be televised by ESPN.
