Thunder, Hawks clash in OKC

Excerpt:

Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook were the highest-scoring duo in the NBA last season and it doesn’t seem to be any different in 2012-13. Oklahoma City’s dynamic pair of teammates combined for 51. 6 points per game a season ago and look to stay on track this evening versus the Atlanta Hawks at Chesapeake Energy Arena. Durant, a three-time scoring champion, and Westbrook scored 23 and 18 points, respectively, in a season-opening loss to the San Antonio Spurs, then combined for 55 points in Friday’s 106-92 win over the promising Portland Trail Blazers. Westbrook poured in 32 points and Durant tallied 23 points, 17 rebounds and seven assists. “We were running the floor better, finishing better and I thought our defense was great tonight,” Westbrook said.

  • Aggregate Sentiment is meant to be an indicator of an individual’s overall sentiment.
  • The Mean is meant to be an indicator of an individual’s average comment sentiment.
  • The Standard Deviation, when there are enough quotes, will indicate an individual’s consistency of sentiment (i.e. a Standard Deviation of 0 would mean they were very consistent in their sentiment and 1 would mean they were very inconsistent).

Note that quote stats are likely to be meaningless beyond the aggregate score due to the tiny sample size. However, they are always provided just in case you find something useful there.
