For two games now, he’s gone with rookie wing Terrance Ferguson over sharpshooter Alex Abrines. He played stretch power forward Patrick Patterson, who has underperformed all season and who he called “rusty” after the big man underwent a scope on his left knee over the summer, only seven minutes during Wednesday’s blowout at the Orlando Magic. “Sometimes if you only get so many minutes in the game, you get the day after to practice, go three-on-three to get your rhythm,” Abrines said. “Get your game rhythm shots especially to not lose focus.”
But his new Thunder teammates have been competing against him for years in Houston and Sacramento and Toronto. They know that he’s only given glimpses of his defense, that he’s a better shooter than he’s shown. “They know, just because they’ve played against me and they’ve seen me, what I’m capable of,” Patrick Patterson said. “They know right now I’m just trying to get back to that elite level.” Patterson knows, too, that he’s better than he’s been.
