The NBA features a full slate of games on Wednesday, but arguably none is bigger than the tilt between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Los Angeles Clippers. Both teams have already clinched their spots in the upcoming NBA playoffs, but are playing for position right now. The Thunder and Clippers are literally neck and neck with each other as we head down the stretch.

Essentially, both teams are playing for the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference and Oklahoma City holds a 1 1/2 game lead over Los Angeles in that race.

Each of the three teams have already clinched their Division.
