Thunder: A team in transition?

"That will be key for us. Last year, and so far this year, we’ve struggled a little in the half-court (offense). If we can get out and get buckets in transition that helps us. In order to do that we have to be good defensively.”

It all starts, Carlesimo said, with defense.

"When we had good defensive possessions (against Houston) we ran very, very well,” Carlesimo said. "Unfortunately, there were a number of possessions we gave them multiple shots or we put them on the free-throw line.”

"Transition is a big function off our defense. On nights we’ve defended well, the more good defensive possessions we’ve had the more we’ve been able to run. But we also want to control the number of possessions in a game. We don’t necessarily want to have a 100-possession game. That probably doesn’t work for us.”
