With the regular season winding down, the Thunder will look to stay atop the Western Conference standings when they host the Sacramento Kings on Friday night.
Oklahoma City currently leads the San Antonio Spurs by 1/2 game for the top seed in the West. While the Thunder have lost four of their last six, they've done what they were supposed to do against lesser teams in the league, struggling against playoff-caliber teams. The Kings have the second-worst record in the West. These teams will be getting very familiar with each other, as three of the Thunder's final eight games are against the Kings.
However, the Kings won the one previous meeting between these team, 106-101 in Sacramento on Feb. 9. Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant combined for 60 points in that game, but the Kings ended the game on an 8-2 run. The pair have struggled recently, showing that another player needs to step up as a go-to player.
