So, yeah, this has been a horrible offensive start for the Oklahoma City Thunder. Just like in the fourth quarter of Game 1, the Thunder have been victimized by having too many non-offensive threats on the floor at the same time. Tim Duncan has not really bothered to guard Kendrick Perkins when he sets screens, limiting all the space Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant have to operate.
This is why starting James Harden may make sense for the Thunder. Granted, it’s also helped that Kawhi Leonard has done a much better job denying Durant the ball, but the major issue is the lack of threats alongside Durant and Westbrook.
