;
→James Harden, A

Exceeded expectations in Orlando and raised his level of play in Las Vegas.

→DeVon Hardin, B-

Could have rebounded better, but hustle was commendable and contagious.

→Serge Ibaka, C+

After an impressive showing in Orlando, Ibaka largely disappeared in the desert.

→Shaun Livingston, B-

Should be higher given his circumstances, but more of an impact was expected.

→Byron Mullens, C+

His inconsistency in Orlando and Las Vegas perhaps indicates what we’re in store for.

→Robert Vaden, C-

His lone job was to make shots. He fulfilled his duty only twice in 10 games.

→Kyle Weaver, B+

He was asked to do more than anyone, from defending the other team’s best player to playing point guard.

→Russell Westbrook, A

Forget his turnovers. His improvement as a floor general and facilitator is what matters.

→D.J. White, B-

Turned in solid shooting performances, but defense and rebounding were inconsistent.

→Incomplete: Tony Durant, Richard Roby, Marcus Dove, Moses Ehambe, Keith McLeod, Doug Thomas, De’Angelo Alexander, Kyle Hines.
