Two Interesting Adjustments By The Thunder

1. Offensively, Kevin Durant is trying to post up more, even if LeBron James is guarding him. Durant has not caught the ball close enough to the basket, so this is a sound strategy.

2. Defensively, they showed a new double-team wrinkle on LeBron James’s first post up against James Harden. Instead of double-teaming from the middle of the floor, the Thunder sent Kendrick Perkins along the baseline. The advantage is that James can’t survey the court and pick out shooters as easily. It’ll be interesting to see if it works going forward.
