Posted : 15 April 2024

Oklahoma City Thunder's rookie center, Chet Holmgren, proudly displayed the team's Northwest Division champions T-shirt, emphasizing the recognition of their hard work after clinching the Western Conference's No. 1 seed with a commanding 135-86 victory over the Dallas Mavericks. Despite the achievement, the Thunder remained focused on their ultimate goal as they transitioned their attention to the upcoming playoffs.


With a record of 57-25, the Thunder secured the No. 1 seed, becoming the youngest team to achieve this feat since seeding began in 1984, boasting an average age of 23.9 years, as confirmed by ESPN Stats & Information research. This remarkable ascent from a lottery team just two years ago highlights the team's rapid development and dedication to improvement.


Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, the Thunder's standout performer, expressed the team's collective mentality of taking each day as it comes and focusing on continuous progress. Despite the excitement surrounding their achievement, Gilgeous-Alexander emphasized the team's awareness of the challenges ahead and the need to remain grounded amidst their success.


As the playoffs loom, the Thunder and the Denver Nuggets, the second-seeded team, eagerly await the results of the West play-in games to determine their first-round opponents. Meanwhile, the Phoenix Suns secured the sixth seed, setting up a first-round clash with the Minnesota Timberwolves. With the stage set for playoff matchups, anticipation builds as the Thunder prepare to showcase their talent on the postseason stage.
