As we go into the offseason and the discussion continues about what free agents Oklahoma City should key on or who the Thunder should set their eyes to in the draft, one good way to gain some perspective is to take a look back at the season in stats.

- OKC did rebound surprsingly well ranking sixth in the league in rebounds per game (42.6). But while the Thunder hit glass well, they did give up 41.2 rebounds a game for a differential of +1.4, which was in the bottom 15 of the league.
