Thunder vs Nuggets Play of the Game: Defense to Offense for the Slam

New, comments

This is pure Thunder basketball. What we see here is the advancement of every players' skillset this season. Serge Ibaka is no longer a mere weak-side shot blocker, but stays with his man until the end and keeps the ball in-bounds. Kevin Durant makes the correct pass up the court to advance the ball past the defense. Russell Westbrook only has to take a single dribble before lofting a perfect lob pass to James Harden, who is streaking up the left sideline, and Harden finishes it with flair.
