Series tied 2-2. Once again, notice that when cro-magnon Westbrook is not taking more shot attempts than anybody else in the building, the Thunder do better.

Pop must now adjust and take the 5th game, before coming back to OK to try to finish the series.

I have it playing out that way as well. I don't expect Ibaka to have such a huge game in game 5 either. Ditto with Sefalosha and Perkins. This OKC team gets rattled on the road and that'll be the end of them ultimately.

I try not to complain about the refs much but damn! I had to take both my shoes off to count all the blown/missed calls. Durant got fouled on a dunk with no spur closer then 2', but tony and Tim get plastered and laid out with no call. That was the story of the night. Or how about durants push off of capt jack right in front of the ref with no call?

Stern came out and shook hands with the refs before the game, should have known!!!!

The spurs now have a new streak, 2 losses in a row.


The spurs better find a way to turn this series around because if not this will be the biggest choke since 2004 when the Spurs was up on the Lakers 2-0 and lost 4 in a row

The refs are not going to be right 100% of the time.

You got one right! But you have to expect the refs to be right more then 50% of the time. Like the "block" ibaka got by pinning the ball on the board... Oh yeah that's called goal tending. (it has happened at least 3 times this series).

I think Diaw got pushed in the back in the 2nd qtr and they didn't call anything.

FINALLY a challenge.

Although, I didn't get to see the game tonight, so what did I miss (besides a Spurs loss)?

This is nothing new rigas. The Spurs have had to have beaten every set of officials on their way to four Titles. So the very pro-OKC officiating we saw tonight was par for the course. You cannot truly believe that there is a league sponsored conspiracy against San Antonio. Otherwise how would you explain the four Championships they have won.

If you follow the favoritism belief all the way to its conclusion you'd have to conclude that the playoffs, the regular season and everything associated with the play on the court is a huge rig. With everything predetermined from the beginning every season. I choose not to believe this. Having said that I fully believe that this Spur team is very capable of defeating both the Thunder and the officials and will take the series. Ditto with Boston or Miami.
