Fred Katz: Thought this quote from Russell Westbrook about how offenses in Europe “are 10 times better than NBA offense” was interesting: On second game defense, what he saw different “Just our awareness on what plays. I think one thing people don’t realize is guarding teams in Europe, their offenses are 10 times better than NBA offense just because they move around a lot. A lot of movement and not as much talent so they have to do different things to be able to score the basketball. I think it was a good experience for us to be able to go to Europe and be able to guard those offenses and some of the best teams. That’s always good for us.”
Erik Horne: Steven Adams (right ankle sprain) is out Wednesday’s game against Barcelona, per team. Will be reevaluated when Thunder gets back to OKC.
