San Antonio sent quite the early message in Game 1 of their 7 game series with the Thunder.
The Spurs grabbed a 1-0 series lead as they dominated in every aspect of the game, en route to a 124-92 win.
Oklahoma City Thunder
The Thunder were still in rather high spirits following their blowout loss in Game 1.
Kevin Durant said every game is like it’s own playoff series and nothing carries over. What does carry over is a 1-0 hole they are currently in.
Durant finished 6 of 15 shooting with 16 points while Russell Westbrook finished 5 of 19 with 14 points. Both performances are poor to their two statuses, as both Durant and Westbrook were non entities in Game 1.
While Durant was in high spirits about it being just 1 game, he wasn’t too happy when one reporter asked about his feelings. Durant said “Im not telling you” in regards to his answer, as the frustration was there mentally. He’ll need that mentality of it being a new game come Monday night.
San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs had no problem with the Memphis Grizzlies in Round 1 and many still questioned what kind of team they were given the injuries to Memphis.
However, all those doubts went out the door in Game 1. San Antonio led 73-40 at the half and took Durant and Westbrook completely out of the game. The Spurs suffocating defense has been their M.O. all year long and Leonard and company shut everyone down.
LeMarcus Aldridge made his mark in a big way.
Aldridge went for 38 points on a stellar shooting performance of 18 of 23.
San Antonio will look for another quick start here to as they attempt to keep the momentum. The Spurs shot 18 of 22 from the field in the first quarter and racked up a franchise record of 43 points.
