Scott Brooks' Coaching Blunder

The Oklahoma City Thunder coach has left Serge Ibaka out of the game through most of this fourth quarter, which has killed his team’s offensive spacing. Understandably, Kendrick Perkins is a good defender, but his presence made it easy for Tim Duncan to load up on Kevin Durant as a help defender.

The easy solution would have been to sub out Perkins whenever possible on offense. Why Scott Brooks didn’t do that, I have no idea.
