The Oklahoma City Thunder look for a season-best sixth straight win Tuesday night when they travel to Brooklyn for the first time to face the new-look Nets.
The Thunder have been dominant in their five-game winning streak, winning their last four games by an average of 25 points. OKC is coming off a 100-79 rout of the New Orleans Hornets on Saturday. The winning streak has helped the Thunder (14-4) keep pace with the Memphis Grizzlies and San Antonio Spurs near the top of the Western Conference standings.
The Nets have seen early success their first season in Brooklyn with an 11-5 record to start the year. The Nets lost their last time out, however, 102-89 on the road against the Eastern Conference-leading Miami Heat on Saturday. The loss snapped a five-game winning streak for Brooklyn.
NBA TV will carry the game nationally, while Fox Sports Oklahoma will have the regional broadcast. The Thunder and Nets tip off at 6:30 p.m. CT.
