The demeanor of the two teams and how they function together. Once again last night, when Golden State made their run you could see OKC’s body language go south and the bickering start. You don’t see that stuff in nearly the same way with Golden State and I think it absolutely makes a difference. They can hold each other accountable and you know Day Day gets on people, but I don’t ever see the kind of jawing back and forth I see with the Thunder.
I question how much OKC likes playing together, honestly. That can be OK…you don’t have to love each other to win, but it sure helps.
