Two of the top teams in the Western Conference will face off this Friday as the San Antonio Spurs travel to Oklahoma City to take on the Thunder. The Thunder took the last meeting between these two, winning 102-92 in Oklahoma City earlier this month.
The Spurs had a five-game winning streak snapped on Wednesday in a 110-98 home loss to the Golden State Warriors. That game most likely secured the 1st seed in the West for the Warriors and locked the Spurs into the 2nd spot.
The Thunder, on the other hand, are still trying to climb the standings in the conference.
They have won two straight, including a 114-106 overtime victory over the Magic in Orlando on Wednesday. Oklahoma City is currently in 6th place in the Western Conference.

Free San Antonio Spurs vs. Oklahoma City Thunder NBA Prediction:
The Spurs are the better team here, but they do not have much to play for. That might mean that Greg Popovich could sit some of his key guys which would give the Thunder the advantage.
