The Thunder are hoping the San Antonio Spurs stumble in a race for the West's top seed, while OKC has to finish perfect.

The San Antonio Spurs seem to have the inside track on capturing the Western Conference's top seed, having just beaten the same Sacramento Kings squad that Oklahoma City wil face Friday to keep a half-game lead over the Thunder, with the tiebreaker advantage.

The Kings have lost eight out of their last nine games, so while an OKC victory seems like Friday night (the teams have split their season series, but the Kings have been in a tailspin to end the regular season), the Spurs will have to lose two games this weekend for OKC to have a shot at the top seed.
