The Thunder dropped Game 1 after shooting an abysmal 5-of-33 from deep. People not named George and Ferguson went 0-of-16 from deep. The team couldn’t stop Enes Kanter.. and the rest was history.

Teams that win the first game of a best-of-seven series at home go on to win the series 76.6% of the time (98-30).

NBA teams who trails 1-0 on the road are 120-267. So, historically, this is an uphill battle for the Thunder.

Despite being just 4-4 after losing Game 1, the Thunder are 3-5 in those series. They’ve come back from being down 2-0 once, in 2012 against San Antonio. They have never been swept in the playoff (since relocation).

Are you worried about the Thunder going forward in the series?
