OKLAHOMA CITY – Kevin Durant was named the Western Conference Player of the Week and the Thunder completed their best homestand in franchise history.
 
Now, we'll see what happens when OKC goes back on the road starting tonight in Sacramento.
 
The Thunder have won seven games in a row – including all six in their most-recent homestand that included wins over the Clippers, Spurs, Golden State and the Timberwolves.

Starting tonight against the Kings, the Thunder will play three games in four days, all on the road, including Wednesday night in Portland against what has turned out to be one of the best teams in the Western Conference.
 
And after returning home Sunday against the Pacers, the Thunder plays another pair of back-to-back games on the road, at Atlanta and at Memphis.
 
The Thunder will have one more six-game homestand later this season. The longest road trip of the season is four games and that doesn't happen until April.
