NBA playoff picture: Thunder look to gain edge on Spurs; Bulls try to hold on in East
Here’s what’s at stake for playoff-contending teams Thursday night:
Thunder at Warriors (10:30 p.m. ET): With a victory, the Thunder (57-21) can grab a half-game lead over the Spurs in the race for the No. 1 seed and home-court advantage throughout the West playoffs. Oklahoma City is set to own the tiebreaker over San Antonio because of a better conference record. Meanwhile, a loss for the Warriors (45-33) would bring the seventh-seeded Rockets (44-34) within a half-game of the No. 6 seed.
