Tonight, the Nets conclude their gauntlet of a three-game road trip, when they face the Oklahoma City Thunder at the Chesapeake Energy Arena. The Thunder enter tonight tied for the best record in the NBA at 25-6, including a 14-2 home record that's helped propel them to the top seed in the Western Conference.

The Thunder are not unbeatable, as they've actually lost two of their last three home games after a 13-0 start, including a 98-84 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday. That being said, OKC hasn't lost two consecutive home games since March 2012. The Nets have lost four straight on the road and are 4-12 on the road overall.

Oklahoma City won't have star point guard Russell Westbrook tonight, as he's recovering from his most recent surgical procedure on his right knee. Nets center Brook Lopez is preparing to undergo the knife to repair his broken foot this week, and backup center Andray Blatche is still out tonight due to undisclosed personal reasons.
