“If you get into a situation where you’re saying, ‘I’m going to stop this one guy,’ then all of a sudden your team defense gets forgotten about,” said Suns coach Jeff Hornacek. “This is a team that’s been in the Finals. These guys are smart. Hovering around the weak side, they’ll use a different option and get layups and dunks.”

WESTBROOK, PERKINS LIKELY TO SIT

It’s unclear exactly what Thunder coach Scott Brooks will do with Russell Westbrook and Kendrick Perkins against Sacramento on Tuesday, but it’s likely that both will get the night off.

The Thunder has held both out of at least one game of back-to-back sets, and with the Thunder set to play a much stiffer test in the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday, it is believed both players will rest against the Kings.

Brooks typically had made the announcement during his pregame media session 90 minutes before the game.
