t KD also needs to pass out quicker to put pressure on the D. The second reason is KD is getting played extremely physically in the post, even when it's guys like Kidd guarding him. (Side note: Kidd can push and lean on KD in the post but no one can do that to Dirk at the other end. Go figure.) So KD's got to make himself a better target for an entry pass. There are a lot of possessions where Westbrook can't even get it to KD in the post out of fear of turning it over.
On Thabo Sefolosha's future with the Thunder:
Because of his skills and his cap-friendly contract, Sefolosha will be around for a while. He can basically get it done on call defensively, and that's something every team needs. Even if (when) he becomes a reserve next season, he'll still have value as the Thunder seeks to try to continue its stated goal of being a defensive-minded organization.
On Serge Ibaka's play against the Mavericks:
I don't think he's still hurt. I think he's playing against a guy named Dirk. He makes a lot of people look bad. That matchup is the exact opposite of what Serge does well. He's not a good man defender. He's a great weak side defender. The proof is shown in this series by his one block-per-game average.
