Thunder notebook: Scott Brooks lets team take a breather

Durant said he has worked hard on his playmaking skills.

"I know that's been an area of my game that people really don't get to see too much," Durant said. "I think I'm confident enough in my passing and my playmaking that I can make my teammates better. I'm getting better at that each year, so I think this year is when I really start to grow and you see more assists than turnovers, hopefully."

3-POINT "GREEN" LIGHT

Forward Jeff Green had the second most 3-point attempts on the team last season behind Durant, converting 104 of 312 (.333).

Green certainly wasn't shy from the 3-point line in Friday's scrimmage.

"Jeff is one of our better 3-point shooters," Brooks said. "It was definitely by flow. We don't want him to become where that's all he is. Jeff attacks and gets to the free-throw line and his midrange jumper is good. But his 3-point shot, the last 40 games or so, I thought he shot a very good percentage, maybe 38, 39 percent. He's definitely a big part of our offense. When he makes that, it puts a lot of doubt in the opponent's mind."
