The Wolves schedule does not get any easier after the loss to San Antonio on Tuesday. Oklahoma City is one of the West’s top-tier teams, and are quite good at home as well. It does help, however, that the Wolves have had a few days to lick their wounds and prepare for this game.

Oklahoma City is coming off of a victory at home over the Clippers, a game in which they fully commanded all night.

Of course, the Thunder employ two of the best five players in the league in Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. Although Durant has an MVP, it is Westbrook that has proven himself more valuable this season.

It will not be easy to beat the Thunder at home, but as Kevin Garnett would say, “Anything is Possible!”
