It'll cause a matchup nightmare for opponents, with the Thunder's five most dynamic weapons on the floor at the same time. Combined, the group averages 84.5 points per game.
“When we move the ball and we play pass-first basketball, using our athleticism, we can get out and score with the best of them,” Durant said. “We just have to get more reps together.”
So far, in their brief time, the group is averaging 1.04 points per possession, a solid number that you'd only expect to increase as their comfort level does.
“Guys are going to have to have (different) roles when we're on the floor (together),” Durant said. “If I'm just a spacer, a spot-up guy, Serge is just a screener, Reggie is just a guy running the offense and Lamb is a shooter, we just have to figure out what our role is with that unit.”
And as of late, it seems, Brooks is attempting to do just that.
Despite some early struggles, he seems set on getting the lineup some quality run together, allowing for some late-game on-the-job training.
And if it works out, we could be looking at the Thunder's present and future closing five.
