1. Can they execute in the half court offensively?
We all have seen the Thunder's ability to get out and run all over teams. However, the playoffs are much slower-paced and require teams to run half-court sets that actually produce. That is a weak point for OKC, and it must be fixed somewhat.
2. When will James Harden return?
After suffering a concussion via a cheap shot from Metta World Peace, Harden will sit out at least some period of time. When he'll return remains to be seen. If he does not return promptly, or if he doesn't play well upon his return, that elbow could become one of the most infamous in NBA history.
3. Will the supporting cast produce?
The bench and supporting cast of the Thunder don't get very many shots due to having to share the ball and court with Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and James Harden. However, they must be ready and able to produce when they get their opportunities.
