I know it's not Warriors related, but I enjoyed reading this article from the people at Basketball Prospectus on how the Oklahoma City Thunder coaching change has made a big change in the team's and Kevin Durant's play. Despite compiling the same record under Scotty Brooks as PJ Carlesimo, it appears the Thunder are improving and Durant has become near All-Star worthy. "Quite simply, Durant is playing a different game. It's also a much better one, as reflected in the massive spikes in his effective field-goal percentage and his True Shooting Percentage. Durant has gone from a low-efficiency, volume shooter to the kind of lethal, highly-efficient scorer he was in his lone season at Texas. And he's done it while slashing his turnovers as well." I'm not sure why the Sonics/Thunder hired PJ in the first place when Durant was drafted. I've been a fan of Durant since he played in Texas so I'd like to see his continued improvement. We'll get another look at him on New Year's Eve. Another 40 point game in the works?
