The amazing individual talent of Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant is saving the Thunder’s offense. Right now, Westbrook is pounding the ball too much and Durant is having a ton of issues getting open in a good spot on the floor. The Thunder still lead, though, because both are such great shot-makers.
The Thunder have just nine assists, but they lead. This is the frustrating thing about the Thunder in general. The great ball movement that we saw in the Western Conference Finals isn’t there anymore, for a variety of reasons.
