Oklahoma City traveled to Milwaukee Saturday to take on a sputtering Bucks team.
For the Thunder, this was a great opportunity to try to make up some ground on the Spurs for the top spot in the Western Conference. San Antonio was a 2.5 games up going into Saturday's action.
The Bucks have been struggling recently, going 3-7 in their last 10 games. At this point, there's almost no way they'll miss the playoffs. Milwaukee is in a tough position because it is unlikely to move up into sixth, so a date with the Miami Heat or New York Knicks in the first round looms big.
Considering the Bucks are unlikely to beat either team over seven games, the Heat might be a more attractive option in terms of quality of opposition.
Let's take a look at the action and see who was able to get the early advantage in the season series between the two.
