This is a six point game in the fourth quarter, San Antonio leads, 5:40 left.
There’s some suspect officiating in this game. When you see bodies flying on one end and a touch foul on the other, there’s suspect officiating. These officials are doing their best to keep this one close.
Or maybe not. San Antonio wins, 120-111 to take a 2-0 lead.
It’s going to be interesting, because the Spurs have won 20 straight games. That’s not going to continue. Personally, I think when The Streak is ended, it’s not going to be a close game but a total blowout.
Here’s some numbers for you: Westbrook, Durant and Harden went for 88 points combined. Tim Duncan scored 11 points and went 2 of 11 from the floor. Tiago Splitter was 6 of 12 from the line. The Oklahoma City Big Three outscored the San Antonio Big Three by 23 points. They lost.
Not only did they lose, they have to beat a team that’s won 20 straight games four of the next five. San Antonio is looking to get a split on the road. I’m pretty certain the Thunder will win game 3. Game 4 means everything. If the Thunder can win that game, it’s a 2 of 3 series. If it goes back to San Antonio 3-1 Spurs, the Heat can start booking rooms for the second week of June in San Antonio.
Charles Barkley is talking about Oklahoma City using a small lineup. Interesting, because DeJuan Blair kills the Thunder and he hasn’t even played in this series. I’d look for Popovich to be flexible. I thought Oklahoma City was going to win Game 1 and if they lost Game 1, they’d really fight hard for the split. It was evident Kevin Durant was really fighting hard for a win in tonight’s game, but other than the OKC Big Three and occasional Derrick Fisher sightings, the Thunder didn’t really have much else. Lack of depth really hurts the Thunder, despite having the Sixth Man of the Year.
