#Thunder would have difficulty winning G7 here bc GSW would've won 2 straight. So G6 is basically their chance to get back to Finals. @news9

Can anything shut up Draymond Green. He won't stop talking trash at Serge. @news9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 27, 2016

...a dandy Saturday. Enough time for Russ to decompress, for the refs to buy new peas for their whistles & for fans to wet theirs. @news9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 27, 2016

KD tripped? #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 27, 2016

Stop with the Turnovers (15) Warriors up 9 #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 27, 2016

Warriors 81 Thunder 77 after three #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 27, 2016

The building is frustrated & ready to explode. But #Thunder D & superstars have them wondering if GSW can close deal down stretch. @news9

I used to be a big fan of Draymond. But the antics of the Kung Fu Fighter have worn me out. He'd be rich if paid by the word. @news9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 27, 2016

That's exactly what they needed to do, plant that seed of doubt in the Warriors' mind coming out of haltime! #ThunderUp

Great start in the 2nd, T on Green, 4pt play from KD, Thunder down one. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 27, 2016

KD's 6-16 FG not indicative of his night. The stroke (& D!) will be there in Money Time. Two 3s help an otherwise poor 4-14 for Russ. @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 27, 2016

As long as this game is close, @okcthunder's length, athleticism, firepower capable of taking over and winning it. #News9Thunder #OKCvsGSW

— Chuck Fisher (@cfishernews9) May 27, 2016

Bogut's 10/8 offsetting continual struggles from Kung Fu Kid (Green 4/8). #Thunder w solid production--except for Serge (1-5, 2 pts) @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 27, 2016

Warriors 58 Thunder 50 H, Durant-15pts, Russ-13pts (4-14 shooting) #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 27, 2016

#Thunder focusing successfully on 3-Pt D. GSW 3-12 while #OKC 6-11. @news9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 27, 2016

The Thunder may be trailing, but still playing with the swagger of a team that believes they're better and will win.. #ThunderUp

— Kelly (@kellyogle) May 27, 2016

Two #Thunder TOs trying to force Serge O into game. Can't worry about him. Score. And score again. GSW is. @news9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 27, 2016

Loudest it's been all night. Can't let Steff Flurry come back in style & allow him to begin to dominate series. D up. 47-39, 5:23. @news9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 27, 2016

Warriors on a Curry run, 7-0 #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 27, 2016

Adams back. #Thunder played pretty darn well w o the big guy. @news9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 27, 2016

Morrow might as well contribute unexpectedly well...following the lead of Andre and Dion. #thunder don't want to host a game 6. @news9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 27, 2016

Time for a Morrow interview after the game #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 27, 2016

Bad sign for the @warriors: @okcthunder not playing well at all in the 1st Q, but only down 4 to start the 2nd Q. #News9Thunder #OKCvsGSW

— Chuck Fisher (@cfishernews9) May 27, 2016

Unlike last few games when #Thunder coulda/shoulda ended 1 qtr up 8-12 points, OKC fortunate to be down 4. @news9 #OKCvGSW

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 27, 2016

.@MrAnthonyMorrow making a surprise early appearance in Game 5. Maybe to try and generate some offense? #News9Thunder #OKCvsGSW

— Chuck Fisher (@cfishernews9) May 27, 2016

Warriors 25 Thunder 21 after one, shaky start but hanging in there, Russ 1/9 shooting #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 27, 2016

First fouls called on GSW w 77 secs left in 1st. Morrow in.

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 27, 2016

Zebras not hiding it very well. There's a good reason Billy D's been arguing call the whole quarter. Playing poorly, but battling. @news9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 27, 2016

Losing Adams at 9:34 hurt...GSW shooting better, except Green still out of whack. And refs are not gonna send Russ or KD to line. @news9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 27, 2016

Thunder shooting 22.7 percent, but the bigger story, Warriors are foul-free with 3:29 left in first. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 27, 2016

4 fouls on Thunder, zero on Warriors #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 27, 2016

No call in the lane, a makeup call is on the way favoring the Thunder. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 27, 2016

2 quick fouls on Adams, Hello Dion #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 27, 2016

Craig Sager tell Oracle fans OKC's own war vet/my pal @EdPulido is his hero for overcoming setback n battle! @News9 pic.twitter.com/0UwNyF9Put

#Thunder in a terrific frame of mind following shoot around. Logic says GS bounces back. But OKC playing so well, logic is worthless. @news9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 26, 2016

Carrying no momentum & limited expectations into playoffs, @OKCThunder on brink of 1 of the all-time astonishing runs to NBA Finals. @NEWS9
