There were many concerns that the Oklahoma City Thunder might take a step back this season following their trade of James Harden.
But the Thunder have an 18-4 record, matching last season's mark though 22 games.
At the current .809 winning percentage, the Thunder is on pace to win 66 games, which would be a franchise record in any era.
“Last year we had a great year,” Scott Brooks said. “We came up short from our goal; like a lot of teams' goal is to win a championship. This year, we're just working and seeing where it takes us. We know that we have a good team. We just want to continue to get better.”
