Oklahoma City Thunder Front Office
The Thunder came in doing things a bit differently and it worked for most of Game 2, until it didn't. The scariest aspect of the Rockets was put on display: if you're going to throw your best punch at them, you'd better get way out in front because they can catch up in a hurry.
The best success for the Thunder have come when they've played big but how can you do that when the offense you're defending is so far from the basket? More specifically, where does Kanter fit in?
Russell Westbrook's first season without Kevin Durant is positively MVP worthy. Does it run the risk of becoming Sisyphean if he wants to continue playing this way and the Thunder can't improve his supporting cast?
