Thunder coach Rich Kromm called this a huge weekend for his team. But what would make it a successful one?
The Thunder plays Utah Friday and Saturday and Las Vegas on Sunday at Stockton Arena. This is a great chance to try to make a move up the playoff seedings, and with less than a month left in the regular season, its certainly time to get moving.
So lets look at this — Stockton can certainly beat Utah, the games are usually tight. The Grizzlies are a good team, but Las Vegas has struggled mightily. The Wranglers have just 15 wins and will only make the playoffs because San Francisco folded.
So there’s six points available this weekend. For Stockton, five points or more is a success, four points is a push and three or less is a missed opportunity.
* The Thunder is holding its sixth annual “Easy Being Green” event today and Saturday. The first 1,000 fans, ages 18 and older, entering the arena receive a free Easy Being Green tote bag. Local businesses and organizations will also be on hand for a “green fair” to help educate fans about eco-friendly products.
