The month of the November is leaving us, but December brings more exciting NBA action. The Oklahoma City Thunder enter the last month of 2012 as the Northwest Division leader, but how will their December schedule impact that lead?
The biggest news for the Thunder came before the season, when the team traded reigning Sixth Man of the Year James Harden to the Houston Rockets. While it seemed like a drastic move at the time, the Thunder have proved that they are more than just a single player.
Yet again, they are among the top of the Western Conference and are likely to remain that way. However, the December schedule will not be an easy one, and the Thunder will have to play their very best if they want to keep their reputation as elite intact.
