With only six games left in the regular season the Thunder are in a tight race for the Western Conferences No. 1 overall seed. Currently the Thunder and Spurs are tied in the loss column with 16 each, but the Thunder have played two more games and have two more wins than the Spurs for that slim one game lead.

The Thunder are not only trying to hold off the Spurs for the best record in the West, but they are also trying to catch the Chicago Bulls who are two games ahead for the best record in the NBA.
