I did say Spurs in 6.

But I gotta admit, a 3rd straight sweep would have been awesome..... Oh well.

What a coincidence. Ball-hogging, cro-magnon himself Westbrook, didn't take as many shot attempts as two of his teammates. The result? A 20-point win over the Spurs. Do you think that the Thunder might get a clue from this.

For the Thunder to have a chance to beat the Spurs, Westbrook must not launch shots up at a record pace, but instead focus on defense and giving up the ball more to his teammates, especially Durant. Hard for him to do since he wants to be in the spotlight, but this is not his team. It's Durant's team.

Go Spurs.

Thunder can win this series if they unselfish ball by making the extra pass with Westb penetrating and passing out to the open guys or cutters. He needs to be a playmaker and not trying to be a heroesque or kobesque. They're an athletic team that can cut passing lanes off and deflect passes. It was an interesting strategy in quite a stretch of the game when they forced Duncan to do it all himself offensively and not letting Parker and Ginobili get involved. However, old habits are hard to break. I wouldn't be too surprised if they revert back to iso and 1-one-1 stuff. Hopefully, Brooks can keep them on the same plan as game 3. Sefalosa played great D on Parker and Ibaka stepped up tonight. Game 4 will likely be their hardest, most pressured game to win on Saturday....should be a very close game.

If Brooks keeps the same game plan he is a fool. Popovich will obviously make an adjsutment.

He's just one in several OKC fans (or "fans") who are acting like they just won Game 7 of the Finals.....

Notice, where was Libsk in the past 4 days?

Forgot to put a big red X across that third game. This series is far from over. 👍
