Now tied for first place in the Western Conference, the Oklahoma City Thunder will look to regain control of the top seed as it plays the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday. The San Antonio Spurs, who have won 11 straight games to pull themselves into a tie with the Thunder, play the Utah Jazz on Monday.

But the Thunder aren't the only team fighting for something in this game. The Bucks have won four straight and find themselves just one game back of the Philadelphia 76ers and New York Knicks for the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference.

The last time these two teams met was the finale of the 2010-11 regular season. The Bucks won an overtime thriller, 110-106, but the Thunder gave its starters plenty of rest with the playoffs looming.

The game tips at 7:00 p.m. CT and will be televised on Fox Sports Oklahoma.
