For the first time since its season opener at San Antonio on Nov. 1, the Thunder has played more road games than home games. When folks around here last saw OKC play in person, the team's schedule was extremely top-heavy, having played five more home games than road games. Back from a six-game road trip — the longest in franchise history — the Thunder's sked will be perfectly balanced at 23 games played both home and away when Thursday's 7 p.m. contest against Memphis is completed at Chesapeake Energy Arena. Many factors will influence what transpires the remainder of the 82-game regular season.
