Research Notes

  • If the last 5 years are any indication, the Thunder will win the championship this season. OKC has improved both its win percentage and season result in each season since the franchise moved from Seattle to Oklahoma City in 2008.

  • Avery Bradley had the task of covering Russell Westbrook for all but one of his offensive possessions on Sunday. Bradley was effective against Westbrook, holding him to just 15 points (season avg. 23.4) and a season-low two assists (season avg. 7.7). In his prior meeting versus the Celtics in November, Westbrook had 26 points and eight assists while Bradley was sidelined with an injury.

  • Kevin Durant made all 11 of his free throws in the Thunder's win over Boston...It was the sixth time this season that Durant made more than 10 free throws without a miss this season, most in the NBA -- former teammate James Harden is second with four.
