San Antonio was said to be the only team who could give the Warriors a run for their money.
Well right now, they’re one game away from being bounced out of this year’s playoffs.
Oklahoma City Thunder
Oklahoma City was routed in Game 1 and while Kevin Durant wouldn’t say exactly how he felt following the loss, he did say it was just 1 game and there were plenty more to go.
With the Thunder up 1, they got a stop and a rebound and forced the Spurs to have to foul. The only problem for San Antonio was that they fouled at the wrong time. After failing to grab Westbrook, the Spurs finally fouled as Westbrook put a layup in. The star PG completed the 3 point play and put the game away.
While he did turn the ball over 8 times in the Game 5, Russell Westbrook was still as brilliant as ever.
Westbrook finished with 35-11-9, as he completely took the game over late.
Oklahoma City will now try to close things out, at a place where they are 35-11 on the season.
San Antonio Spurs
San Antonio lost just 1 regular season home game and that came to the #1 seeded Golden State Warriors.
However this series has been totally different. The Spurs have dropped 2 home games and are now in dangerous of being eliminated. They’ll be forced to go on the road here in Game 6 and steal a win before they can think about a Game 7.
The Spurs are a good road team, which bodes very well. The Spurs have gone 30-15 SU and did steal Game 3 in Oklahoma City.
What worked so well for them in their Game 3 win was that they made somebody other than Westbrook beat them. By doing that, they were able to force turnovers and get some big open buckets down the stretch in transition.
The Spurs have averaged 112 points in the wins this series, but just 95 in the losses.
