EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Let's all play GM for a minute, and we'll all pretend we're running the worst team in the NBA. At our disposal is a player ranked 15th in the NBA in assists, a seven-year veteran who has been considered a rock-solid backup throughout his career -- although he was a starter in 73 of his 76 appearances last season. After notching another nine assists Monday night in a 103-99 overtime loss to the New Jersey Nets -- a total that easily could have been a dozen or more if the Thunder had knocked down several open jumpers, that particular point guard has now tallied 20 dimes in his past two games.
