I'm allowed to post my feelings about how the series has turned in the past week. And for a team to be so dominant and lose 3 in a row all of a sudden is the definition of a choke whether you wanna believe it or not. I state what is happening in a playoff series and no one can argue that this will go down as the biggest choke in spurs history if they lose this series for the reasons below

1. they were two wins away from the finals

2. They had won 20 in a row

If there is one team that can defeat the Thunder two times in a row it's the Spurs. San Antonio will have to put up two masterpieces to pull it off but it is not impossible for them to do so.
This is true but OKC hasn't lost at home all season if I recall.

I'll give credit where credit is due. OKC was the better team last night. They deserve to win. Spurs were disappointing. Missed 11 consecutive FG attempts in first half, that's . If OKC wins this series, that's three championship holders they defeated in the playoff rounds. My support will remain on the WCF winner. For now, it's still Spurs. If OKC wins, I'm going for Thunder to win it all.

Yeah, if the Spurs would've had a solid first half, they probably would've won.

SA played a good second half, but they still didn't deserve to be in that game late. With OKC up by 11, Russell Westbrook proceeded to turn the ball over 3 times in a row. All 3 of them UNFORCED. Double dribble, then offensive foul, then Backcourt.

I know you can't blame the Spurs for taking advantage of what was given to them. But San Antonio didn't "earn" their way back into that game, it was more of Russell giving them the game. He's super talented and having a great post-season overall, but sometimes Westbrook checks out of games for a few minutes.

If Westbrook would've gotten the ball to Durant on those 3 straight turnover possessions, OKC wins by 8+.

Most of all is their poise under pressure...they sure grew up big time in this game. Still another game to be played and the Spurs will fight pretty hard.
Great post. The main reason I picked the Spurs to win the series is that I was unsure that OKC had enough playoff seasoning as a team. I readily admitted that they had the guys, just maybe not quite this year.

A hard-fought WCF, we all know the Spurs will bring it for game 6 and the fan energy in OKC will be an amazing thing to see. You have to respect their fan energy and enthusiasm.

Yeah, Westbrook was my only other concern. He keeps trying to be the "star" and get's wild from time to time.
