Tough at Home 12/19/13
UNDATED - There's only one team in the NBA that hasn't lost at home this year. Oklahoma City puts that distinction on the line tonight.
The Thunder ride a seven-game winning streak into tonight's game against Chicago. That's part of a league-best 20-4 record for OKC that includes a 12-0 mark at home.
The last time the franchise opened a season with 12 straight home wins was in 1993-94 when the team was in Seattle.
The Bulls are hoping to have point guard Kirk Hinrich (HYN'-rihk) back in the line-up. He's missed three straight games with back stiffness including last night's loss at Houston.
Golden State hosts Southwest Division-leading San Antonio to round out the limited NBA schedule. The Spurs will be without guard Tony Parker for the second straight game. He's returned to San Antonio to received treatment on bruised shin. San Antonio has won five of its last six.
The Warriors have been strengthened by the return of Andre Iguodala (ihg-woh-DAH'-lah), who missed 12 games with a right hamstring injury.
Golden State has lost three of its last five games.
