The Thunder have struggled to finish strong, and are now fighting to keep their top seed in the NBA's Western Conference in this final week of the regular season.

Oklahoma City has dropped five of their last nine games, putting their once-assumed position as the Western Conference's top seed in doubt. They head to Phoenix, where if both the Suns and Thunder can hold on through the league's final week of the week regular season, the teams would meet in the first round. The Suns are tied for eighth with the tiebreaker advantage over Houston. OKC, meanwhile, is trying to hold off a surging Spurs team that holds the advantage over the Thunder, having won the season series. Since the All-Star break, Phoenix is 11-2 at home.
