“Tonight, we didn’t get a lot of good looks offensively and we didn’t move the ball well enough,” OKC Thunder coach Scott Brooks said. “We took a lot of tough shots and our timing wasn’t where it needs to be and we missed a lot of 3s.
“Everything that happened tonight is correctable, which is good. It’s not that we had issues. The fact is, everything that we did wrong tonight we can go back and get better.”
