Video: Top plays from Oklahoma City’s dunkfest over Dallas
By Anthony Slater – Aslater@opubco.com - @anthonyVslater
In many ways, Oklahoma City’s preseason finale was a bogged down defensive slugfest, beating Dallas 88-76 in Wichita on Wednesday.
But the limited scoring was filled with highlight reel plays. Here’s a countdown of the top 3:
3. Harden in the open court
With the contract situation lingering, Harden has struggled in the preseason. But when the fluid lefty gets in the open court, he’s at his best. Check out this smooth drive and finish.
2. Durant to Westbrook
I’ve always felt the backdoor pick for an alley-oop was underutilized. Doc Rivers loves to dial it up in Boston. And it seems like a play, when called and executed right, could get you two easy buckets per game. Anyway here’s the Collison-Westbrook-Durant version. Keep your eyes on the Nick Collison screen, it sets this dunk up.
1. Westbrook returns the favor
We’ve got another Collison-Westbrook-Durant alley-oop, this time with changed roles. A nice outlet by Collison sets up one of the prettiest plays in the game. Not much is better than a halfcourt lob. And these two pull it off with such ease, on both ends.
