PBT Extra: Defense, Westbrook have Thunder turning season around

The Thunder have started to turn their season around thanks to their top five defense and Russell Westbrook taking control of the offense.

The numbers have long been there — their record says the Thunder are 11-12, but they have the point differential of a 14-9 team.

While much of the sports world kept asking “What is wrong with Oklahoma City?” turning their season around was simply a matter of winning some close games. Which they have started to do, three in a row now, and it’s a sign of things to come.

In this PBT Extra, the topic is what has been the difference in OKC, and the answer is good defense and more Russell Westbrook.
