Research Notes

  • How value is Russell Westbrook to the Thunder? He is extremely valuable, especially on the DEFENSIVE end of the court. This postseason, his absence has caused a major lapse in Oklahoma City's defense.Offensive, defensive and net ratings are measures of a team's points per 100 possessions.

  • Kevin Martin was 0-of-5 on catch-and-shoot jumpers in Game 5, and has made 6-of-25 (24 percent) in the series. Martin led the team in efficiency on catch-and-shoot jumpers during the regular season, averaging 1.26 points per play while shooting 43.7 percent.

  • James Harden made a playoff career-high 7 3-pointers, and his average made shot came 19.8 feet from the basket. Harden shot 4-of-25 from 3-point distance in the first 4 games of the series, and his average made shot was 5.2 feet of the basket.

  • Kevin Durant was the primary ball handler on 14 of his 19 4th-quarter touches in Game 5, but failed to score. Durant is averaging 24 more touches, mostly in the backcourt as the team's primary ball handler, since Russell Westbrook's injury.
