No. 6: 2010-2011

The 2010-11 run was one of the best in Thunder history. It ended with the OKC Thunder getting bounced in the Western Conference Finals at the hands of a destined Dallas Mavericks squad. The Mavs would go on to beat the new-look Miami Heat in 2011, and it is hard to believe that had the Thunder knocked off Dallas in the conference finals, they wouldn’t have been champions as well.

The bench unit was Serge Ibaka, James Harden, Nick Collison, Nazr Mohammed, and Eric Maynor.

James Harden averaged 12-points per game off the bench, blitzing in threes at a 34-percent clip. Serge Ibaka not only turned in solid offensive production, with 9.9 points per contest, but he anchored the bench unit defense.

Ibaka turned in over two blocks a game in 2010-11. Ibaka also grabbed 7.6-rebounds a game. Eric Maynor played in all 82-games, backing up Russell Westbrook, and he dished out 2-assists per game, to go along with his four points.
