However, that record is just one of the many positive signs that the Thunder are right back where everyone thought they would be. This team is clicking on all cylinders right now as it steamrolls its way through inferior competition.
Trading James Harden was a controversial move that led many to doubt whether Oklahoma City would be able to challenge for an NBA title again in 2013. The Thunder have answered those doubts, proving that they were not going to allow their aspirations to be swept away with the departure of a single player.
When you look at how this team is playing, it is clear that they are still a championship contender. Kevin Durant and his teammates are performing at a very high level in almost every facet of the game.
