    The Thunder are first in defense but only 28th in offense.

    I said the Thunder need to be top 5 in defense to have a chance to be an upper echelon team, but the offense can't be 28.

    Offense by what metric? We'll be at the bottom in efficiency metrics because we can't shoot 3s. Nothing to be done about that.

    They need to be at least in the vicinity of average.

    I think it's very exciting that the Thunder won @ the Clippers with those two basically non existent on the offensive end. It's going to be a totally different brand of basketball, but it can be just as effective. Defense travels. Role players are notorious for playing better on offense at home, so the road games are going to have to look like last night.

    Several players get ejected early for both teams and it turns into a D league game.

    If we foul KD hard a few times, and Green doesn't kick anybody in the nuts.

    Yep. He has to develop a little hook or something halfway reliable in the post. If he doesn't do it soon, he never will.

    I haven't seen all of every game, but I don't even remember his little eight-foot one-handed push-jumper much this year.

    But like Ro said, it's a pretty great sign that he and Kanter did nothing offensively and the team still won last night. I didn't expect that at all. Honestly, based on the first couple of games, I thought this might be a long year. But beating a supposed top-3 on their home floor is pretty huge.

    Westbrook dunks over Durant and shatters the backboard in the process.

    This game is a true barometer of Russ's maturation. If he is able to stay under control and continue to play like he is, that will be a huge statement on where he is as a player.

    Also lulz at the national media types trying to ask Russ you know who questions.

    When Russ sez he's not talking about that anymore, he means he's not talking about that anymore.

    Agree 100%, but he tried that shot several times in the first game and he bricked almost every one of them. I seem to remember some report about how he's been 'perfecting' it over the summer, but maybe it didn't translate to real games and he's laying off it for now.

    Looking at advanced team stats paint a picture of what Donovan and Presti are trying to do with this team:

    - Defensive Rating - 88.8 (#1 in the league)
    - Pace - 106.60 Possessions per 48 minutes (#1 in the league)
    - Rebound Percentage - 55.1% (#3 in the league)

    - True FG Percentage - 50.1% (Third WORST in the league)
    - Assist Percentage - 47.5% (Fourth WORST in the league)

    What do you do when you can't shoot and you have difficulty moving the ball on offense? Play defense, push the ball and rebound. I think the Grant acquisition makes a lot of sense in light of that. I still don't understand the fascination with Rudy Gay, but whatever.

    If the Thunder continue to buckle down on defense they will have a chance to win most games.

    But damn is it going to take a lot of effort and concentration.

    Draymond said he "really wants to beat OKC for KD"
    Wtf these guys really are gay lovers.
    Why does KD want to beat us so bad? To validate his defection? I don't get it

    I'm just hoping he turns into what we all thought and think Robes would turn into, slashing and cutting and living on dunks and layups.

    Wow what a dirtbag.
    Well what's different about GS? Well, you've got no bench, no defense, and you're going to lose at least one of your key players this off season. Lawz

    Was going to say, doesn't this team seem more fundamentally sound than before?

    But Russ was the selfish/out of control one, right?
