I know, I'm just egging. And I'm refering to the big plays in the first half.

He would love it if the Spurs were out completely.

If the Thunder tie it up I think the Spurs are in trouble. They better make sure they steal one of those game at OKC

After game one, I knew that I had seen almost all I had needed to see of that series; I just wanted to see what adjustments OKC would make. We've got our answer. The Thunder just don't have what it takes to slow down the Spurs. It really is that simple. The Thunder are a solid offensive team, but they're an average defensive team. Against a team that passes the ball as well as the Spurs, average won't get it done.

About the only team that could possibly beat San Antonio is Miami, and I'd immediately put them as an underdog. But the Heat definitely can bang inside. However, they will need to rest Bosh and get him as ready as possible. They will need the big bodies to bang around with San Antonio.

Even then, I don't see how SA can be stopped. They're a textbook team to watch in terms of executing the fundamentals. It's a lot like watching the 49ers under Bill Walsh or the Patriots under Belichick, except it's basketball, not football. But it's precision and timing, and flawless execution. It's five guys knowing exactly what to do, how to get it done, and when. Individually, there may be more talent on other teams, but this is one of the best teams I can remember seeing in a long time.

You have every reason to be worried if OKC ties the series at 2-2 because they played well enough to win game 1 and it will be 3 games left with both teams needing 2 wins. I don't see how someone could think the spurs are a lock to win the series at that point.
