Ball-handling: A. Perhaps the Thunder's best game of the year – 23 assists and only seven turnovers. Two of the turnovers were offensive fouls. The Thunder had 14 assists in the middle two quarters. Westbrook had nine assists. In eight playoff games against the Lakers and Spurs, Westbrook has 45 assists and just 10 turnovers.
Three-point game: C. The only downside to the Thunder defense was letting the Spurs sink 11 of 26 3-pointers. It's not like the Spurs were wide open on those shots, but they were clearly hot. Conversely, the Thunder made just six of 22 3-pointers and might have taken too many. Outside of Sefolosha's 4-for-10, the Thunder was 2-of-12 from beyond the arc.
Transition game: A. Steals and blocked shots lead to fast breaks, so no surprise, the Thunder outscored the Spurs 18-7 in transition. Through three quarters, the advantage was 14-1.
