He's been better in the second half.

Never seen OKC share the ball like this before though. Good for them.

I think Brooks trusts Harden way more than Westbrook. He's made the last 5 entry passes to Durant.

Well, OKC got KD the ball, thats for sure. Nice job by Brooks with the playcalls getting RW to screen for KD to get the mismatches, and KD just hitting everything right now. I'm glad Harden is handling the ball at the top making the passes to KD and not RW.

Big props to Brooks and OKC for finding a way to slow down Parker and Manu.

We've got a series ladies & gents.

I was one (of the very few) that picked OKC in 6. I thought that if they took one of the first two in San Antonio, that the Spurs could be left reeling from that, after having won 19ish in a row, and that OKC could take advantage of that.

While I was picking with my heart, I also thought that after the Spurs won both at home that this series was not over - like many had predicted. OKC is just so good at home, and if they win the next game in San Antonio (they now have all the mo'), I can still see OKC winning in 6.

I think this one's going the distance, though. Hopefully (from a fan's perspective), there's a game 7 (and I don't really care who wins, although I'm an OKC fan - I just hope whoever wins can beat the Heat!)

They didn't really slow down Manu. The biggest difference has been not trying to get to the rim off the dribble over and over again by each guy individually. They have utilized the pass like the Spurs had been, and now with Parker being presseured a lot more it's been SA dribbling into traffic. It's been quite a reversal.

The series we thought it would be at the start! 2-2! KD show in the 4th Q. Most clutch player in NBA, now?

Big props to Ibaka though. His shot was money tonight. Nothing but net every time.

9/22, 25 pts combined and only 5 FTAs combined....

That = "slowed down" to me. Or call it "contained" if you like.
