Since Kevin Durant's moving MVP acceptance speech, the Oklahoma City Thunder seemingly have no worries. Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers probably believes his team can do something to change that.
The Thunder enter Game 4 on Sunday with a 2-1 series lead and are coming off consecutive games of shooting better than 50 percent from the floor. Both Durant and Russell Westbrook have been getting plenty of open looks themselves, but the Thunder are also benefiting from a more assertive effort by the team's two stars to create for the role players. Take forward Serge Ibaka as an example. He shot a combined 15-of-20 in the last two games, and in Game 3 Oklahoma City also got 14 apiece off the bench from Caron Butler and Reggie Jackson.
Los Angeles has not had as easy of a time moving the ball and knocking down open looks. Blake Griffin wasn't his efficient self in Game 2 and conversely was about the only option with pick-and-roll mate Chris Paul in Game 3. Their teammates have shot just 30 percent from three-point range in the last two outings. But that Clippers defense could certainly use an upgrade as well.
