Keys to the Game

  • Limited Turnovers
  • Strong Perimeter Defense
  • Dominate the Boards

The season opener is finally here and it’s time to start a new era of Thunder basketball. With a clean slate from last season, the Thunder will look to limit the amount of turnovers tonight. Perimeter defense will be a factor not only in this game, but for the entire season. Seeing the evolution of Andre Roberson and adding Victor Oladipo to the team should improve the perimeter defense from last year. Last but not least, the Thunder will look to dominant the boards on both sides of the ball. Be on the lookout for double digit rebounds from both Steven Adams and Enes Kanter.
