Oklahoma City Thunder

In the last matchup, Kevin Durant and the Thunder, scored a 112-95 victory in Miami and James will be hoping to return the favor come Thursday night.
Oklahoma City (43-12), which leads the NBA standings, has a 23-3 home record, while the Heat (38-14) have a road record of 18-10.
Meanwhile, after spending months on the sidelines because of another surgery, OKC Thunder star point guard Russell Westbrook is set to make his comeback against the Heat after making it through a full practice Wednesday.
“I thought he had a good practice today,” Oklahoma City coach Scott Brooks said. “We went pretty hard, no question.
“We did a lot of things in transition, we did a lot of halfcourt. We did a lot of defensive drills, and he was able to participate in all of our drills.”
Miami Heat All-Star guard Dwyane Wade is expecting another tough game against a team that keeps getting better and better.
“It’ll be one of our biggest challenges of the regular season,” he said.
“Anytime we play them (is a challenge), especially now, after losing to them at home.
“And bringing in Westbrook, you’re bringing in a dynamic player at home, where they play very well. We’re going to have to play as close to flawless as we can to beat this team.”
