Thunder coach Scott Brooks said he and his team are not focused on making sure they earn the top seed in the Western Conference.
However, Brooks also admitted he studies the stats, the box scores and, of course, the standings.
And now with eight regular-season games to go for the Thunder, and that top spot still a possibility for Oklahoma City, figure Brooks is paying really close attention.
And so is Kevin Durant.
"You just have to play basketball," Durant said. "Yeah, you look to see who you would play if the season ended today, but we've played all these teams before. You just have to be prepared. It's just going out there and playing our game and seeing where that takes us."
Here's a peek at the possibilities and probabilities for where the Thunder could land and who they could match up with in the first round.
