The Spurs have lost the season series, so they can only afford to lose 2 more games than the Thunder. Their closing schedule is one of the more brutal ones I have seen. A win against them Thursday would go a long way to putting them on ice, but as has been noted elsewhere, being second of a back to back and third in 4 nights, it looks like a scheduled loss.
