Three Big Things:

Win by a little or lose by a lot.  The Thunder’s seven losses have come by an average of 17 points, while wins have been by an average margin of 6.5 points. The Los Angeles Clippers are one of the league’s best, but if OKC can keep it close, the Thunder have shown they know how to close.

Regular Season P.  Paul George is off to a hot start this season, averaging 24.8 points per game, while shooting 51% from the field and a scorching 51% from three. Though Lu Dort is giving up five inches to PG, Dort may be the Thunder’s best hope to slow George and keep the game close enough to give OKC a chance to steal a victory in Los Angeles.

Darius Bazl3y.  After shooting nearly 35% from three in his rookie season, Darius has been suffering from some sophomore struggles, converting just 27% on twice as many attempts .  As Bazley continues to develop his offensive skills off the bounce, the New Balance kid needs to start knocking down treys to keep the defense honest.
