Thunder's key to success: Beat the bad teams

Thunder analyst Grant Long said the biggest problem early in the season is it’s difficult to define the "bad teams.”

"Some teams don’t know they’re bad, yet,” Long said. "That makes it tougher. If a team starts 4-15 then the label can be applied this is one (game) you need to win, a team you’re supposed to beat.

"Even then I’m not a firm believer in that. That’s just statistics. On any given night a sub .500 team can beat the Lakers. Everybody will say, ‘They caught lightning in a bottle.’ Well, they won. You need to play well every night or you can get beat.”
