Report: Thunder to open 2015-16 season at home against San Antonio on October 28
The full schedule for the 2015-16 regular season is expected to be released this week, but bits and pieces of it have been trickling out ahead of the announcement. The Oklahoman‘s Darnell Mayberry is reporting that the Thunder will kick off their season at home against the Spurs in what should be a pretty great matchup:

This will be a phenomenal game, assuming everybody’s healthy. The Spurs made the biggest free-agent acquisition of the summer in LaMarcus Aldridge, and stole David West for the veteran’s minimum. Kevin Durant played just 27 games last season after undergoing foot surgery, and the Thunder expect the 2014 league MVP to be healthy to start the year. There’s a very good chance this matchup could be a preview of the Western Conference Finals, as it has been twice before.
