It's a 2012 Western Conference Finals rematch this Thursday as the red hot KD and Thunder take on the Spurs, followed by the streaking Los Angeles Clippers and Chicago Bulls on Saturday.Last week the NBA continued on ESPN with Kevin Durant setting a new career high 54 points in a win over the Golden State Warriors, the San Antonio Spurs survived against the Utah Jazz and the Los Angeles Clippers thumped the New York Knicks. Lets see what you can look forward to this week on Foxtel! San Antonio Spurs vs Oklahoma City Thunder Time & Date: Thursday 23rd January from AT&T Center Coverage: LIVE at 1:30pm AEDT The San Antonio Spurs have lost their winning edge in recent games and will come into this match against the Oklahoma City Thunder vulnerable to defeat if they don't perform. After winning four games straight, the Spurs narrowly escaped to win against the lowly Utah Jazz and New Orleans Pelicans. A loss to the Portland Trail Blazers followed and a win is hardly impressive against the Milwaukee Bucks. The Thunder are certainly coming from winning against stiff competition, Kevin Durant has blown teams apart averaging 38 points, 6.6 assists, 5.8 rebounds 2.4 three's and 1.4 steals over his last five games. In a testament to making the players around him better, KD has made the transition of Serge Ibaka to the Thunder's second in command smooth as Ibaka has flourished with 18 points, 60.9 FG%, 11 rebounds and 2.8 blocks per game over his last five. San Antonio have lost their mojo and injuries to key players Tony Parker, Danny Green, Tiago Splitter and Matt Bonner have caused it. Although they just like any other team, the Thunder without Westbrook for example, are also affected and must adjust to win with the guys that are available for play. It means an increased role for Patty Mills and he just recorded 20 points and 7 assists in 27 minutes against the Bucks. Aaron Baynes is also expect to see time on Kendrick Perkins, Ibaka and kiwi Steven Adams. Watch For: Desperation. The Spurs have a 1-8 record against teams above .500, unexplainable by Manu Ginobili and coach Gregg Popovich. They themselves have said the Spurs have not had a signature win this season and there's no way giving up a game to the Thunder at home will help with playoff seeding. Chicago Bulls vs Los Angeles Clippers Time & Date: Saturday 25th January from United Center Coverage: LIVE at 12:00pm AEDT DeAndre Jordan and the Los Angeles Clippers have got to be the hottest team in the league right now, even though this amazing run of play hasn't included Chris Paul. Seven wins from their last nine games, all without Chris Paul, means the Clippers mean business. It's hard to imagine the 2013 Clippers coached by Vinny Del Negro to perform at this level Doc Rivers has them playing at. Champion teams are TEAMS, not individuals that carry a team and Los Angeles are playing well as a unit. Jordan, Blake Griffin, Darren Collison and J.J Redick have all increased their production to cover for Paul and have not fallen into the trap of trying to replace Chris Paul. This sort of cohesive unit is what the Chicago Bulls are looking to the future for, as the Luol Deng trade to the Cleveland Cavaliers looks to accelerate the development of Jimmy Butler. The Bulls have won seven out of their last nine games, with the only two losses strangely both coming at the hands of the Washington Wizards. Joakim Noah has been on a magnificent stretch himself, no trade or Bulls front office staff looking towards the future for draft picks are going to deter Noah from giving 110 percent, coach Tom Thibodeau called Noah's recent play "His best stretch" for his career. Watch For: Joakim Noah vs DeAndre Jordan. It's safe to say there is going to be a double techinical called on both players at some point during the match, neither of them can keep a cap on their aggression and that's what we love about them. Rebounds will be more scarce than Brian Scalabrine playing time, back in the day when he was on the Bulls' bench.
