OKLAHOMA CITY - As the defending Western Conference champion, the Thunder no doubt is wearing a target this season.
Judging from the early results, the bull's-eye is mighty big.
After Wednesday night's 107-97 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies at Chesapeake Energy Arena, the Thunder is 6-3 heading into Friday's 7 p.m. game at New Orleans, which is hardly a disgrace. That's a .667 winning percentage, which equates to a 55-27 regular-season record, which likely would result in home-court advantage for the first round of the playoffs.
Are teams playing OKC tougher than usual, or is the Thunder not playing up to snuff so far?
