Just like Thunder's low TO count was anomaly in Game 1, 41/42 FT stats was anomaly yesterday. It won't happen again. We need to keep banging from inside. Sessions knows what he has to do, so I see him doing just that again. The key for this game seems to be rebounding, IMO. If we rebound well, we'll win. We can't give up 10+ offensive rebounds. Especially to their guards, Westbrook and Harden.
To me, the reason Thunder is still in this is because of 2 major plan.
1. Durant - Perkins : Screen and roll. Most of Durant's points came from that tactic. We need to do a better job defending that and settle Durant for long jumpers.
2. Harden : I can't believe there isn't an help defender when it's needed. Bigs need to do a better job getting his way and forcing him to shoot above them. He always takes the contact, whether he forces or not refs always whistle the call.
If we solve these two problems, which IMO are easy to solve with our group, we'll win this series 4-2.
