Thoughts on the Thunder and the Mavs

Filed under: Uncategorized — wwinston @ 10:58 am

Here are some thoughts on OKC’s win.

1.James Harden is the man! When he was in for129 minutes OKC was +48 points; when he was out -22   points.

2. More amazingly when Harden was in and KD and westbrook were out OKC was +19 points in 20 minutes.

3. Mahinmi should have played more for the Mavs. The Mavs were +11 points with him in and were even +1 with Mahinmi and Harden in the game.

4. West killed the Mavs: Mavs -41 points in 88 minutes with West in. Maybe Roddy B should have played more (12min +12 points)

5. Against Harden we should have seen more of Dirk, Mahinmi, Terry, Carter with Kidd or West 16 minutes +9 points.

6.  West, Dirk, Carter, Wright with Terry or Kidd wrecked the Mavs with Harden in 14 min -21 points.

7. Haywood, Dirk, Kidd Marion and Terry 8 min +7 pts) was also good with Harden in

8. In 54 minutes with KD and Westbrook in and Harden out Mavs were +3 points, so clearly Harden is the straw that stirs the drink.

9. In the 37 minutes Harden was out and West was in the Mavs were -5 points but when Harden was out and West out in 26 minutes theMavs were +27 points!

The Mavs could easily be 2-2 right now, but OKC made the plays and deserve multiple props!
