ESPN’s Kevin Pelton noticed something unique about Trail Blazers coach Terry Stotts strategizing for game two of the team’s playoff series against the Thunder — Stotts tasked an assistant coach with trying to anticipate Oklahoma City’s strategy.

Pelton said that this level of attention to the opposition’s strategy is not necessarily the norm for other NBA teams.

The Blazers lead the best-of-seven series with the Thunder 1-0; the next game is Tuesday at 7:30 at the Rose Garden.
