“We're just moving the basketball really well,” Durant said. “And once you do that, combined with playing solid defense, then you always give yourself a chance to win.”
The five-game home stand starts Friday with the rival Los Angeles Lakers. It will be followed by visits from Indiana, New Orleans, Sacramento and San Antonio. The Thunder defeated four of those five inside Chesapeake Energy Arena last season. The Pacers did not play in Oklahoma City last year as a result of the lockout-shortened season.
“It gives us a chance to focus in, take it one day at a time and try to get some good wins,” Westbrook said.
And, of course, keep the fun going.
“Guys are coming through for us making big plays,” Durant said. “It's like we're just having fun out there. That's what it's all about for us. No matter what … we're never rattled. We just keep playing. That shows signs of a team that's growing up.
“We've just got to keep working every day. It's going to be tough times. But it's just how we get through them.”
