The Winning Formula:

More from Thunderous Intentions

So here is what I am suggesting, when the Thunder scored 104 points, doled out 30 assists, won on the glass, and got to the free throw line at least 22 times plus a Westbrook triple-double they will win. Am I right?

I looked up OKC’s box scores and adjusted for when they had at least 104 points, 20 assists and at least 22 free throw attempts. This has happened 22 times this season and in those games, they are 20 and 2.

They lost a contest on November 20th to New Orleans in which they were trounced on the glass. So scratch that one of the list.

In February they played the new look Cavs and won on the glass but Russ only had 7 rebounds. No triple-double.

So in games where they hit the 5 marks, OKC is 20-0.
