Where Thunder stands in NBA title odds
Before games tip-off Monday night, the Jazz, Thunder and Mavericks are all within one game of each other in the Western Conference standings.
With almost no separation between the No. 5 and No. 7 seeds, first-round playoff pairings are still to be determined.
“If you’re looking at the standings and you’re not winning, then what does it matter?” Thunder point guard Chris Paul said Monday after practice. “You’re gonna mess around and fall out. I think what we try to focus on is winning games.”
The Thunder (37-23) is in no danger of falling out of the playoffs with just 22 games remaining in the regular season.
