Can Oklahoma City Finish The Regular Season Atop The Western Conference?

With just six games remaining in the regular season the Oklahoma City Thunder are poised to finish the season as the Western Conference. The Thunder still have four games remaining on their final road trip of the season before their final two home games back at Chesapeake Energy Arena. This much is clear; Oklahoma City's still relatively healthy, they know who they are as a team, and they know what their ultimate goal is as a team.

Winning an NBA championship.

Home court would be ideal for the Thunder, as a 25-6 home record is third-best in the league. However, the Thunder have the second-best road record with a 19-10 record that is second only to the Bulls. San Antonio lurks right behind them, waiting to take the No. 1 seed away from them. Can they do it? Or is the top spot OKC's to lose. The Thunder play a potential second-round matchup next in the L.A. Clippers on Monday night.
