The Oklahoma City Thunder have had a rather eventful postseason thus far, with some closely contested games as well as a devastating injury to Russell Westbrook.
Since the Thunder will be without their star point guard for the remainder of their playoff run, they are in an unprecedented situation since the Oklahoma City era began.
Because of this sudden change in the Thunder's gameplan, we've seen a different type of team since Westbrook's injury in Game 2 of the first round.
As a result, there are some judgments that fans can make about the team, especially in a high-pressure environment like the postseason.
Some of these judgments that are made do hold a certain amount of credibility and value, while there are others that are a bit rushed or may be based on a small sample size.
Whatever the case, it's time to separate the facts from the fiction regarding the Thunder's playoff run thus far, so we can get a clear picture as to how well they are functioning without Westbrook.
