Bad for the blood pressure, but a great basketball game with so much at stake. #News9Thunder #GSWvsOKC #WesternConferenceFinals #Game6

That's five on Mr. Green #News9Thunder

KD can rest in August. Get him back in! @news9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 29, 2016

Never expected to hope it's Steph taking 3s. Thompson is a home-breaker.
Poise & buckets. #Thunder need 'em badly. @news9 #OKCvsGSW

Thunder 83 Warriors 75 after three, hang on Thunder fans #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 29, 2016

#Thunder don't play gr8 in 3rd but see 5-point halftime lead swell to 8. Crowd can feel it. Gonna take tenacious D & much-better FTs. @NWES9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 29, 2016

Good to see Kanter score a few (6pts.) #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 29, 2016

14-of-22 OKC FTs. And it's become a 'thing.' Crowd pensive...murmers..misses adding up.
BTW Billy's Hack-a-Whomever has worked. @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 29, 2016

Serge sure had a running start. Took 9 steps then...airborne....misses! How? Wasted points. @news9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 29, 2016

It just seems right for Green to foul out tonight. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 29, 2016

Too many great players on both teams on the bench in foul trouble. Ridiculous not to let the players decide a classic. #News9Thunder

— Jeff Bardach (@JeffBardach) May 29, 2016

Getting to the line is great. But hope not relying on iso ball too much and too early. @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 29, 2016

How big is this? A play here or there could determine so much. Enjoy it. @NEWS9 65-62

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 29, 2016

Crowd on its hands. This is when needed. GSW landing blows. @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 29, 2016

Sticking w OKC win prediction but'll take better half.
KD/Russ 0-8 threes. Need to out-RBD & push lead to +10 early 3rd. @NEWS9 #OKCvGSW

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 29, 2016

Crowd completely bummed-no MO. 5-point lead not indicative of how game was played. But all that matters is, up just 5-& GSW 36%FG.

Thunder 53 Warriors 48 Half, Durant 16pts. 6-19 shooting, Ibaka-12pts. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 29, 2016

The officiating is....well, it's how i expected it. I always hated ppl blaming officiating. But this is clearly 1-sided. And a shame. @news9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 29, 2016

Did Billy instruct Dre to foul Iggy in that kind of situation? @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 29, 2016

I don't care what anybody says. A kick below the belt is WAAAY worse than getting dunked on. #AdamsRevengeOnDraymond #News9Thunder #GSWvsOKC

— Chuck Fisher (@cfishernews9) May 29, 2016

And somehow, it's a 6-point game. @NEWS9 #OKCvGSW

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 29, 2016

.@warriors hangin' around despite not playing well. Feels like @okcthunder should be up 15-20 points. #News9Thunder #GSWvsOKC #stillclose

— Chuck Fisher (@cfishernews9) May 29, 2016

GSW getting most of the calls or this one could be closer to 20 than 10. @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 29, 2016

Adams flying dunk a combination of Bob Beamon & King Kong. Airborne longer than it takes to say 'Sorry Draymond-Comin'-Through-Pal.' @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 29, 2016

Adams never cheats a dunk #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 29, 2016

#Thunder D the difference so far, GSW 27%FG. But here comes Steph. And he nails 27-footer @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 29, 2016

The Warriors have 23 pts. with 7:28 left in the first half. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 29, 2016

Andre Roberson has become a fan favorite. His defense is a level beyond exceptional, so far. 33-21. @NEWS9 #OKCvsGSW

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 29, 2016

FT matchup: OKC 3 of 4. GSW 1 of 2.
31-21, @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 29, 2016

Amazes me they don't give Steph or KD a call but repeatedly send Kung Fu Draymond to line. @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 29, 2016

has @StephenCurry30 been held scoreless in a first qtr this season? He has zero in the 1st tonight. #News9Thunder #GSWvsOKC

— Chuck Fisher (@cfishernews9) May 29, 2016

EKanter goes from 6 mins & nothing in G5 to 4 quickies in 1st minute of 2nd qtr, 29-20. It be loud. & ready to be louder. @NEWS9 #OKCvsGSW

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 29, 2016

Run away with it....... Thunder up 29-20 #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 29, 2016

Thunder 23 Warriors 20 after one, KD 2-10 shooting #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 29, 2016

If @russwest44 keeps hitting that jumper, it's going to be a long night for the @warriors. #News9Thunder #GSWvsOKC

— Chuck Fisher (@cfishernews9) May 29, 2016

Killer call on indifferent contact on Adams. Sends to bench w 2 PF. @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 29, 2016

Only thing better for OKC than Russ hitting mid-ranger jumper is if the game ended right now. 16-12 #Thunder. @NEWS9 #OKCvsGSW

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 29, 2016

Amazing what a little movement to the bucket can do. #Thunder MUST keep attacking the hoop to win. #News9Thunder

— Jeff Bardach (@JeffBardach) May 29, 2016

Serge has to be aware of 1 on 1 mismatch when Curry is on him. Got 2 anyway, but IQ? Lead by 4. Time out. @news9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 29, 2016

Once again KD doesn't get 2 fouls that could've sent him to line for 5 FTs. Better adjust. Been season-long thing. Strong GSW start @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 29, 2016

Thunder down 12-9, KD tough shooting 2-8 from the field. #News9Sports

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 29, 2016

One of those games where every possession has game-deciding feel to it. Need Russ & KD to settle into their shots ASAP. @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 29, 2016

So Tom Izzo is in the house. That didn't happen by happenstance. Smart move by someone. Draymond's composure GEW Key 1. @News9 #OKCvsGSW

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 29, 2016

Kerr switched goals tonight so the Warriors offense would be in front of the their bench in the 2nd Half, due to crowd noise. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 28, 2016

Morrow all-twine in warm-up. #thunder prefer to limit mins of Morrow & Kanter bc of bad D that Kerr exploits. @NEWS9 pic.twitter.com/dVxTEEwJUu

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 28, 2016

KD prepping for biggest game of life, aside from 2012 Finals. Says "aggressive start is key." @news9 #OKCvGSW pic.twitter.com/5MfpbPvfFB
