Kevin Durant talks about OKC Thunder’s early-season struggles
It has been a struggle out of the gate this season for the new-look Oklahoma City Thunder dropped nine of their first nine games.
However, there has been plenty of optimism around the team about them eventually turning it around at some point this season. Golden State Warriors star forward Kevin Durant also falls in line with that belief holding firm that they will build the chemistry necessary to finally have consistent success the court, according to Erik Horne of the Oklahoman.

“The Thunder team they have Russ, PG, and Melo. They’re still trying to figure out to play with each other. We talk about chemistry a lot, it’s just about being comfortable on both ends with each other. I think they will figure it out at some point. They score so well all three of them that any given night they can go off. All of them score 20 points a game so at some point in the season they will start making their shots and start to play together and it will be fun to watch.”
It has been a major adjustment period for the Thunder for all three of their superstars having to learn how to play off each other. This is the first that each has been on a team with a player of equal or greater talent on the court with them.
On top of that, they all have to shift their games a bit away from the isolation type of basketball that they have grown accustomed to playing over the last several years, especially Carmelo Anthony and Paul George. It’s just a matter of them figuring it out over time and finding the best way to be more efficient on both ends of the court.
Oklahoma City have a huge test in front of them on Wednesday night against the defending champion Golden State Warriors to gauge where they are at in the process.
