Again, he's on the defense. We have been lit up by every 3 point shooter in the the league over the last 3 years. This is nothing new. James Harden is a great player, but he has NEVER been a good defender.
Once Westbrook and Durant start playing better OKC will be fine. I think they are both trying to expand their games now for a later payoff.
Kevin Martin is plus 15 without Durant and Westbrook on the floor this year. He's averaging 16 points on 9 shots which hasn't happened since Artis Gilmore in 1981. To say OKC isn't as playing as well yet because of the trade is just lazy journalism.
They have played sloppy this year, and part of that is the adjustment I'm sure. It's just irritating that they aren't paying more attention to what they are paid to analyze.
Also, Memphis is pretty ****ing good.
The sky is falling.....
