Thunder, Lakers meet needing a slump-busting win

The Oklahoma City Thunder and Los Angeles Lakers enter Thursday's game in Oklahoma City needing a win.

The Thunder have struggled over the past three weeks, going 5-7 since Dec. 23. That stretch includes two losses to the Timberwolves and one each to the Mavericks, Wizards and Hawks -- all teams currently on the outside of the playoff race.

A big reason for Oklahoma City's struggles has been its defensive regression.
