Oklahoma City Thunder Might Not Be Worst NBA Team This Year, After All

Josh LambertContributor IDecember 21, 2008

After the win against the Raptors, it seemed as though this team has figured something out.

The Thunder lost tonight to the Cleveland Cavilers by 11 points, 102-91. If it were not for the freakish play of LeBron James, Oklahoma City might have earned another win.

Here are some teams that make me think that the Thunder aren't the worst team in the league.

The Minnesota Timberwolves are 4-22. The Timberwolves have lost the last 12 games so far. The Thunder have met Minnesota twice, losing at home by three to the Thunder, and then winning at Oklahoma City by two.

The Washington Wizards are 4-21. The Wizards have dropped 11 of their last 13 games, with the two wins versus Golden State and the New Jersey Nets.

The Thunder are now 3-25, But they are closing in on the Timberwolves and Wizards. All three teams are struggling, but the Thunder have shown great improvement. There is still a lot of basketball to be played. We'll have to wait and see which team goes on.
