Research Notes

  • The Thunder made 19-of-28 shots inside five feet Friday, including 5-of-5 from Kevin Durant. The Lakers defense has struggled mightily over the last three games without Pau Gasol and Dwight Howard in the paint, allowing opponents to make 67.0 percent of their attempts inside 5 feet, which would be the worst percentage of any defense this season.

  • Russell Westbrook used isolation on a season-high 44.4 percent of his plays Friday, scoring 15 points on 7-of-12 shooting on such plays. Westbrook entered the game averaging 2.9 isolation points per game, while shooting under 30 percent.

  • Kevin Durant scored eight of his season-high 42 points in the post Friday on 3-of-4 shooting, continuing his improvement on such plays this season. Durant is averaging 1.08 points per play on post ups this season, which is ranked second in the NBA behind only Kobe Bryant (among 80 players with at least 40 post up plays).
