Takeaways from the 2019 Preseason

Nick Gallo

The regular season is on the horizon, less than a week away. The Thunder will have a handful of practices between now and a flight to Salt Lake City to prepare for its season opener Wednesday night against the Utah Jazz.

During that time, Head Coach Billy Donovan and his staff will look back at the four preseason games the Thunder played and relay some points of emphasis to the players to hone in on moving forward.

Overall, the preseason was a wonderful opportunity for the coaching staff to evaluate talent, try out a different starting lineup each game and get a pulse on what works and what doesn’t. Now there comes almost a second training camp, a solid work week to take what the Thunder put on film and turn it into actionable growth for the regular season.

In the meantime, here’s a breakdown of what okcthunder.com reporters Nick Gallo and Paris Lawson noticed over the past two-and-a-half weeks.
