Here’s what makes the Spurs so dangerous: they are so good at converting off your missed shots. The Thunder’s defensive activity in half-court situations thus far in Game 1 has actually been excellent. They’re sliding their feet, getting hands in the passing lanes and smartly helping off weakside shooters to cut off driving lanes.
The problem: the Spurs have scored six of their 10 points in transition situations. We’re not talking about layups here, more early offense that comes from the defense not being set. This was how the Spurs really killed the Clippers, and the Thunder have to be alert and find their men quickly.
