NBA Standings 2012: Thunder Has A 3 Game Lead Over Spurs, 1 Game Back Of Bulls

The Oklahoma City Thunder got a huge victory when they defeated the Chicago Bulls 92-78. The Bulls were without Derrick Rose, but a blowout win over the team with the best record even without their star player is still a good win.

Sunday's win for the Thunder kept them three games ahead of the Spurs for the best record in the Western Conference and only one game back of the Bulls for the best record in the NBA.

With just one month left in the regular season the Thunder is likely to be the No. 1 seed out West, but their opponent is still very much up in the air as the bottom of the Western Conference is extremely tight. So, their opponent could be anyone's guess at this point as the difference between the West's No. 6 and No. 10 teams is only three games.
