A three-game losing streak by the Thunder has allowed the Spurs to tie them for first place in the Western Conference. How jacked up do you think Durant, Westbrook and co. will be to break out of this slump tonight?
I’m theoretically on-call to write the “six thoughts” recap of this game, but if it’s the steamrolling I expect it will be, I might not bother. Let’s see if anything interesting happens. I don’t know about you, but I’m looking forward to the regular season wrapping up so that I can focus on basketball that matters instead of witnessing the death throes of another doomed Raptors season.
I’m a big fan of Joakim Noah’s fingerguns, but Russell Westbrook took it to another level with his “BOOM!” exclamation here. Maybe we’ll get to see this again tonight.
