01:34 PM ET 11.14 | Trailing by 11 entering the fourth quarter of their last game vs. the Detroit Pistons, the Oklahoma City Thunder played five guys the entire final 12 minutes to come back and win the game. Those five guys look like the new crunch-time lineup for OKC: Russell Westbrook, Kevin Martin, Thabo Sefolosha and Kevin Durant. It's a small lineup and the Thunder are at their best with those five on the floor together. Through eight games this season, the Thunder have an offensive rating of 103.4. With this lineup in the game, that rating shoots up to 125.6. Defensively, the Thunder have been better with this lineup out there as well improving their defensive rating from 94.7 all the way down to 80.6. It's still early in the year and we only have a small sample size (24 minutes) with this core playing together but it was very clear two nights ago that this will be the new closing lineup in OKC.
