07:27 AM ET 12.16 | With a 101-98 win over Orlando on Sunday, the Thunder continued their winning ways at home, where the franchise is now a league-best 12-0. The next two home opponents, Chicago and Toronto, are Eastern Conference foes that don't figure to pose much of a threat. The two after that, Houston and Portland, could get it done. But if they don't, the Thunder's streak could stretch into February. "We never really talked about it, to tell you the truth," Thunder guard Russell Westbrook said of this year's home dominance. "But I think as individuals and around the locker room, we do a good job of just coming in here taking care of our fans and coming in and competing each and every night and trying to win the game." Before this season, the Thunder's best start at home was a modest 3-0 mark.

OKC is playing well, but they are covering up Perk big time. He is completely useless offensively, and these days his defensive presence can hardly be felt. I'm not sure what they can do about him, but surely they cannot hide him come playoffs. OKC will pay a price for not having a legit center.

They 'll be undefeated until February. Their defense goes up a notch more at home.

Possibly. But they are a top WC team and every team is supposed to be tough to beat at home. It's an accomplishment if they do it, just not sure how big.

I take exception to this article. The Mighty Raptors are a threat to themselves.
