The Western Conference Finals series between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the San Antonio Spurs has shown that the Thunder have the best double team in the NBA.
Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook are a dangerous duo, and despite all of the talk that suggests they can't play together, they have dominated all opposition this post-season.
2013/14 NBA MVP Durant has the most amount of points during the playoffs after leading the regular season scoring as well. Durant has 29.8 points per game, and nearest to him is LeBron James way back on 27.3 ppg.
To find his teammate Westbrook you don't have to look far down the list of top points scorers this post-season, with Russ fourth in ppg.
No other team has two top ppg scorers both in the top five, and out of the teams left in the running for the NBA title, Miami come the closest with LeBron second and Dwyane Wade 21st, with only 19.1 ppg.
The first two games of the finals in the West showed how dysfunctional the Thunder can play, as they sometimes lack a plan B. But when they are rolling they're rolling, and KD and Westbrook are a huge part of that.
Now that the Thunder have won two games straight they head into tonight's match-up level in the series. Westbrook and Durant were vital in those games, with the two combining for other 70 points in Game 4.
If OKC are going to win the NBA title this campaign, it will be on the back of great play by the league's best double act.
