A 3-minute look at the upcoming Thunder schedule.
Best home stand: The Thunder have a pair of six-game home stands, but the November 18-29 stretch is really good when some of the best in the West come through Oklahoma City. The five-game stand starts with Denver and then the Clippers. There's Utah, San Antonio and then Golden State. That's some serious playoff power.
