Thunder offense stagnates at Indiana

After setting three consecutive season highs in assists, the Thunder’s offense stagnated Tuesday night in Indianapolis. 

The Thunder had 19 assists and 16 turnovers in its 111-85 loss to the Pacers. The lack of assists was primarily influenced by a season low 35.8 shooting percentage. 

“We definitely struggled on offense,” Thunder coach Billy Donovan said after the game. “I thought we had some opportunities to move the ball to the perimeter … I thought they were physical with us on our cutting and our movement.” 

The Thunder ranks 27th in the NBA with a 103.1 offensive rating. Offensive rating measures points scored per 100 possessions.
