Hustle: A. The Thunder made up for poor play with effort. From Westbrook's maniacal forays into the paint to the 50/50 plays on loose balls won by Harden and Thabo Sefolosha down the stretch, the Thunder worked its way to this win.
Rim protection: A. Fourteen blocked shots. Fourteen! And not just from Ibaka, who had nine. Durant's block of J.R. Smith's 3-pointer in the final 10 seconds helped save the game, but in the final three minutes, Harden had a big block of Arron Afflalo's shot, with Denver up five.
