This has turned into an unsuspecting close series.
The Thunder drew even as Kevin Durant went off in Game 4. Now, the series shifts back to San Antonio where both teams look to take control of the series back.
Oklahoma City Thunder
The Thunder have proven that they can hang with this Spurs team. They’ve also proven they have the ability to steal a game in San Antonio.
The Thunder stole Game 2 in San Antonio and then after losing homecourt right back, they got a stellar performance from Kevin Durant to even things back up in Game 4.
Kevin Durant has averaged 27.8 points per game this series. Right next to him has been Russell Westbrook, who has averaged 22 points and 10.5 assists.
What might be the biggest key to their success has been the play of Steven Adams. The C has recorded 10 or more rebounds in all 4 games while averaging nearly 10 points per game. Adams has been a force on both ends of the floor, really changing the complexion of this series.
The Thunder will look for Dion Waiters to repeat his performance as he scored 17 points on 7 of 11 shooting.
San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs will have their first test probably all season long here in Game 5.
San Antonio almost always knew they would be the #2 seed and never had to worry about much else. After sweeping the Grizzlies in Round 1, they now have their backs somewhat against the wall. A home loss here would set them up for elimination back in Oklahoma City.
The Spurs struggled on both ends of the floor in Game 4 in the 4th quarter as they were outscored 34-16. While they haven’t let Westbrook beat them, Kevin Durant certainly had his say as he picked this impressive Spurs defense apart.
Parker has stepped his game up lately, averaging 20.5 points per game over the last 2. Look for him to be a huge key here in Game 5.
