Thunder look to attack basket vs. slumping Suns

Even without Russell Westbrook on the floor for a big chunk of the early part of the season, the Oklahoma City Thunder have found ways to be successful offensively -- usually by attacking the basket.

That went away for a period of Saturday's 111-96 loss to Dallas and a day later, Thunder coach Billy Donovan emphasized offensive aggressiveness with his team.

"You've got to put some pressure at the basket," Donovan told reporters. "If you're not putting any pressure at the basket, I think it's really difficult to have a good offensive night because there's no threat to go to the rim -- everybody's just kind of spread out, staying at home."
