With the OKC Thunder down by 25, they rallied back for a stunning victory over the Jazz. The hard work will have to continue as they still trail 3-2 in the series.

Two things ring true with this OKC Thunder team: they are highly inconsistent and highly entertaining. We have revelled in the mighty comeback at home in game five – see our post game analysis here. As much fun as it was, we must look ahead quickly to game six.

Russell Westbrook went bonkers in the last game to propel the OKC Thunder past the Utah Jazz in the second half. It is a bit discouraging however, that they were in such a predicament in the first place.

Not getting into such a large hole may prevent another historic comeback, but that is preferable nonetheless.

We saw some interesting rotations by Oklahoma City in game five that they could try to utilize again going forward. By this point in the series, both teams know each other very well. Some different looks could be one of the slight edges that OKC needs.

Stealing a game on the road will be a tall task. If Utah wins, they move on to play the Rockets. If the OKC Thunder win, they get one final home game and a load of momentum.
