Thunder Close In On Jazz, Huge Game Looms Wednesday


The Oklahoma City Thunder will get back to practice today as they get ready for what will be a critical game with the Utah Jazz on Wednesday night.

Utah lost to Toronto last night so the Thunder are now just one game behind Utah for fourth place in the Western Conference and home court advantage in a first round playoff series. If OKC beats Utah tomorrow night the Thunder will move into that fourth spot.

With no practice session yesterday there was no update on the health of guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander who missed Sunday's game in Boston with a bruised hip.
