The Oklahoma City Thunder travel to New Jersey to take on the struggling Nets, and aim to rebound after a 105-102 loss to the Washington Wizards on Wednesday.
The game is the final leg of a three-game road swing for the Thunder, and Oklahoma City will look to start a new winning streak after the Wizards abruptly halted a seven-game streak for Scott Brooks's club.
The Nets are just a half game above the last place Toronto Raptors in the Atlantic Division, but have won two of their last four games, and PG Deron Williams is starting to find his stride after a slow start to the season.
At 12-3, the Thunder sits atop the Northwest Division, one and a half games clear of the Denver Nuggets. With four games against opponents with losing records in the next six nights, the Thunder has a chance to build that lead before a more difficult early Feb. schedule stretch.
The tip is at 7:00 PM CST, and can be seen locally on FS Oklahoma.
