They beat okc coz of westbrook
No, they beat OKC because of:
Zero interior scoring from big men (Perk:2 Ibaka:4 Collison:6 - On 5/15 is atrocious for interior players)
Everyone except Durant had an off shooting night, only 3 guys in double digit scoring (Spurs had 5)
No Harden to bail them out
I hear so much about Westbrook's defensive lapse but what about Durants 4 turnovers? The team has 18 and while Westbrook's 6 is way too high 18 total is a good way to lose games.
The last 2 minutes of the game went like this
Duncan misses a shot. Durant boards.
Westbrook takes a 3, Perkins rebounds.
Westbrook misses and gets fouled. Makes 2 FTs
Parker misses and Westbrook rebounds.
Westbrooks trys an alley-opp, misses.
Westbrook fouls to stop a fast break.
Parker makes a 3.
Westbrook passes the ball to Durant and Kawhi Leonard steals it.
Parker makes the go ahead 2.
It seems like the only person on the Thunder who got anything going in the last 2 minutes is Westbrook. You can say that is because he was being a ball hog but I watched it and that wasn't the case. He tried to get his team involved they just blew. Durant had the chance at a game clinching play and he got his pocket picked. Yeah Westbrook blew the last defensive play but in a close game down the stretch lots of guys can blow it. It's my opinion that the problem in OKC is Scott Brooks and not any of their players. Food for thought.
