The Oklahoma City Thunder last won a playoff series in 2016. OKC beat the San Antonio Spurs in the second round and advanced to play the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference finals.

In that 2016 WCF, the Thunder famously blew a 3-1 lead over the Warriors, who then subsequently blew a 3-1 lead over LeBron James’ Cleveland Cavaliers.

When Did the Thunder Move From Seattle to OKC?

The Thunder played their first season in Oklahoma City in 2008. 

The franchise rebranding and relocation was announced in 2007 after former owner Howard Schultz sold the SuperSonics to a group of Oklahoma-based investors.
