The Thunder were supposed to be fighting for a top spot in the West this season, not fighting for a playoff spot. But they are the team most hit by injuries to key players. Faced with the possibility of missing the playoff for the first time since 2009, the Thunder must soar to one of the last two playoff spots. They are 4 games behind Phoenix and five games behind San Antonio. Another problem for the Thunder is the New Orleans Pelicans, a team above the Thunder in the rankings.
The Thunder are ranked 13th in attendance for home games at the Chesapeake Arena averaging 18,203 per game in 2015 which has been constant since 2012/2013. The Thunder has a 12-7 record at home so far. OKC Thunder opening day ticket prices on the secondary market have dropped -36.61% from their high at the start of the 2014/15 season of $142.00 per ticket down to $90.00 per ticket average currently.

Here is a look at the Top 5 Games the OKC Thunder have coming up:
Timberwolves @ Thunder, Chesapeake Arena, January 26,
Starting price $22, Average price $58
The Thunder have the commodity of playing in the same division as the lowly Timberwolves. It is not just this game, but two more by the end of the season the Thunder will play versus Minnesota. And for a team desperate for easy wins, it doesn’t get as easy as playing the Timberwolves four times in the season. View all Thunder vs Timberwolves tickets at the Chesapeake Arena.
Thunder @ Pelicans, Smoothie King Center, February 4,
Starting price $8, Average price $32
The Thunder lost the first games of the season versus the Pelicans, but those were with half of the team injured. Now they have Westbrook and Durant back in uniform, which could be enough for the Thunder to win on the road. They will play the Pelicans at home just two nights later, which gives them a great chance to even things out with the team from New Orleans.

OKC Thunder tickets for their game against the Pelicans Feb 4th at the Chesapeake Arena start at $37.00 per ticket and are averaging $62.00.
Thunder @ Suns, US Airways Center, February 26,
Starting price $43, Average price $83
Unlike their duels with the Pelicans, the Thunder won two of the duels with the Phoenix Suns. Should they get into the playoffs, they must continue the success versus the Suns, a team that is three games in front of the Thunder in the standings. They will play one more game in Phoenix in April. The first two duels, which the Thunder won, were played in Oklahoma City. View Phoenix Suns vs the OKC Thunder Tickets at the US Airways Center.
Lakers @ Thunder, Staples Center, March 1,
Starting price $60, Average price $137
Same as with the Timberwolves, the Thunder must rack up a couple of easy wins in order to make up ground with the playoff teams. The first duel between the teams was as close as possible, with the Thunder wining 104-103. They will play one more game by the end of March, in Oklahoma.

Trail Blazers @ Thunder, Chesapeake Arena, April 13,
Starting price $29, Average price $66
Before the season started, the Thunder and the Blazers were supposed to battle for the title in the Northwest division. Just half the season in, Portland has the title wrapped up. The Trail Blazers have won two of the first duels between the two teams. For the Thunder, beating Portland has additional confidence value, given the fact they might meet in the playoffs. But they will also have to beat them at least once this season. View all Thunder vs Trail Blazers tickets for the Chesapeake Arena.
