We knew January was going to be tough for the Thunder. Seventeen games with only six at home. Eleven back-to-backs. By the end of the month, you could tell that the grind had taken its toll on OKC — and yet it still finished the month with an 11-6 record and an even firmer grip on homeport advantage in the playoffs. How did the Thunder do it? What positives emerged? What concerns? Berry and I talk about all that more on The Jenni & Berry Show.

1:55: Even though the Thunder looked tired at month’s end, an 11-6 record was a huge triumph.

3:04: Did OKC’s January performance clinch homecourt advantage in the playoffs?

7:00: Is Mark Daigneault’s trigger quicker on his rotations?

10:00: Shai Gilgeous-Alexander’s monster season continued with a monster January.

12:30: SGA wasn’t the only Thunder player to have a big January.

16:30: The Thunder didn’t exit January without a few concerns.
