The league has officially spoken on the Thunder’s top 10 plays of last season. Definitely a little different than my top 10, but to each their own, I suppose. And this version is the complete kind, regular season and playoff combined.
One thing that I’m reminded of in watching this: How absurd was Westbrook’s steal against the Grizzlies in Game 5? I mean, that’s the kind of thing that never happens. Like when the announcers are saying, “OK, you go for the steal here and then you have to foul.” Nobody ever actually gets the steal.
And in the Thunder’s case, they entirely mangled the situation and risked the clock just running out on them, but Westbrook bailed them out. Had the Thunder finished it off and won the game, we’re talking an all-time moment, I think. In fact, they had like three of those potential moments in this top 10 (KD’s four-point play, Westbrook’s four-point play), except they lost those games.
