08:09 AM ET 02.04 | Somewhat suddenly, the Thunder seem to be climbing uphill while on the road. Next to the status of Kevin Durant's rib, that's now the biggest question facing this team. It's also one you could pose to five different people within the organization and possibly get five different answers, most of which might seek to sugarcoat the ugly truth, which is the Thunder is in a real rut at the moment. Oklahoma City is just 3-4 in the past seven road games. Over that span, the Thunder has allowed 107.2 points per game and 46.8 percent shooting. Not exactly the type of numbers that validate the Thunder as a defensive-minded team. ... In the long run, the Thunder will have to win on the road at some point to secure the title.

Sweet Cavs win over OKC on Saturday. I was there. 4th quarter had a playoff-like atmosphere. Yeah, I know it's the Cavaliers but it was still fun.

They lose everytime Durant and Westbrook's jumpers are off. They are able to get to foul line and offset most of it though.

QUOTE(#4):

Just a small slump. The Thunder will be back on track after the all star break.

The Thunder are the West's best team but Miami is their Kryptonite.

Not worried, reg season every team are going to have some kind of winning problem before the playoffs unless your the 95-96 Chicago Bulls. Almost a perfect team.
