Nothing sounds better than the swish of the net. Last night, the OKC Thunder delivered another comeback win over the Brooklyn Nets that mirrored their previous match-up.

The Oklahoma City Thunder returned home to face off against the Brooklyn Nets after completing a four-game road tour that saw them go 2-2 to complete two regular season intra division sweeps of both the Portland Trail Blazers and Utah Jazz.

Having gone 4-6 in their last 10 games, OKC came into the game with an overall record of 41-26 for fourth place in the Western Conference standings. Brooklyn came into the game with an overall record of 36-33 for sixth place in the Eastern Conference standings. The Nets went 6-4 in their prior 10 match-ups, but they won their four most recent games and were eager to notch a signature win over Oklahoma City.

The Brooklyn Nets have been fighting a steady battle to stay in playoff contention. With a record just above the .500 mark, the Nets came into Chesapeake Energy Arena hungry for a win against a top tier team. Contrarily, the Thunder have been a top flight team all season, but they are currently working to regain a winning momentum after going 4-6 since the All-Star break.

The Thunder last played against the Nets in early December, a game in which they eked out a 114-112 win on the road after overcoming a 23 point deficit. Last night was the second and final time these two teams will likely face off against each other until next season.

Oklahoma City secured a 108-96 victory before once again going on the road to face off against the Indiana Pacers tonight. In a tale of two teams, here are three key takeaways from their win over the Nets.
