Boston's defense has been a problem as they have allowed opponents to score over 100 points in each of its last five setbacks. Oklahoma City is one of the toughest teams in the league to defend with its combination of Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook and have put up 115.3 points in their last three wins. Kevin Martin has settled comfortably into the sixth man role for Oklahoma City, averaging 17.8 points. Boston is surrendering 99.3 points, and allowed the Spurs to shoot 58 percent on Wednesday. Not a good sign against Durant, Westbrook and company.
