Thunder’s Dynamic Duo and More
Oklahoma City has a great all-star duo of Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook but they are more than just those two players.  Serge Ibaka was the key player on Saturday night as he had a career-high 22 points and a career-high 16 rebounds. Ibaka gave Oklahoma City a different dimension on Saturday and it was too much for Denver to handle.

Denver’s Foul Line Troubles
Denver can point to free throw shooting as one reason they are down 3-0 in this series. They missed 15 free throws on Saturday night and in this series they have missed 36 free throws. They are shooting just 69% from the line.  Denver head coach George Karl called the free throw line a little nightmare for his team.
