Trip number three to Oakland this season for News9 is on the way. The season will play on by the Bay. #News9Thunder

We don't win this series w/o the brute force Kid Kiwi brought! @RealStevenAdams #ThunderUp

The 4th can't finish soon enough, OKC only 8 pts. in quarter. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 13, 2016

This happens when you begin playing D on your heels. Turning it back around extremely difficult. Anything possible, Up 14, 5:21. @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 13, 2016

Someone better tell the Spurs this thing is over!!

— Kelly (@kellyogle) May 13, 2016

All due respect to reports that KD still will need a 6-7 game series w GS to re-sign I just don't see it. KD knows OKC is over hump. @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 13, 2016

Thunder 91 Spurs 65 after three #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 13, 2016

#Thunder O so dynamic that reverting to disinterested D isn't cutting into lead, 80-55. Still, better D is needed. #SPURSvTHUNDER @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 13, 2016

Should've guessed after G1 Andre Roberson would tear it up in a G6 where OKC closed out Mighty Spurs. #SPURSvTHUNDER @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 13, 2016

Who's this Roberson cat, and where'd he come from?! #ThunderUp

— Kelly (@kellyogle) May 13, 2016

Thunder need to re-focus on D right now!

— Kelly (@kellyogle) May 13, 2016

Russ w 3 careless turnovers in first 330 of 3rd quarter. Same number that entire #Thunder team had in 1st half. @NEWS9 #SPURSvTHUNDER

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 13, 2016

The lazy Gimmies #Thunder D giving up look like regular season mediocrity. Must stop that now. Don't give champions oxygen. Even! @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 13, 2016

Remember Game 1 boys... Remember Game 1.. don't let up! #Thunderup

— Kelly (@kellyogle) May 13, 2016

2 Russ TOs in first 1:40. That's only thing that could make it tight.

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 13, 2016

#Thunder need to keep D intensity & remain sound & it's hard to envision a comeback of this proportion. D end & limited TOs key. @news9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 13, 2016

.@spurs aren't playing like themselves at all. Only one person I know called for an #OKC blowout. This is surprising.#News9Thunder #SASvsOKC

— Chuck Fisher (@cfishernews9) May 13, 2016

THAT is Championship Defense my friends!!! #ThunderUp

— Kelly (@kellyogle) May 13, 2016

Thunder 55 Spurs 31 Half. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 13, 2016

If Adams develops a free throw extended shot he'll be a monster. Dominating now after a migraine is incredibly impressive. @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 13, 2016

Thunder playing great D on Aldridge and Leonard!

— Kelly (@kellyogle) May 13, 2016

Billy the Kid deserves much of the credit. #Thunder D about to hold #Spurs to under 20 in 3rd straight quarter. #SPURSvTHUNDER @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 13, 2016

Can't imagine how shaky #Thunder could be nursing 5-pt lead late 4th. Worth repeating. Important to extend lead while foot on throat. @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 13, 2016

Sure. KD 4 of 13 and 0-2 on 3s. Roberson 2 of 2 behind the arc. Easy to game to understand,....ha.

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 13, 2016

Roberson picks a good night to hit his first two 3's in the series. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 13, 2016

Are you feeling a Thunder win tonight?? #News9Thunder

— Christy Lewis (@LewisChristy) May 13, 2016

Boban is tall and Dion is playing outstanding off the bench, OKC up10. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 13, 2016

Westbrook would be the guy to do it if it could be done. He almost had 2 turnovers in one possession w/in 5 secs of each other. @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 13, 2016

Bark was always right even though it made locals crazy. Said OKC lacked inside scoring threat-easy points. Adams/Kanter now strength. @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 13, 2016

Thunder have a very rare chance to jump on Spurs & knock them out. Better do it, bc it won't be any better than now. 27-19. @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 13, 2016

Love the way Foy is finding himself! #thunderup

— Kelly (@kellyogle) May 13, 2016

OKC holds Spurs to 20 or less in back to back quarters. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 13, 2016

Great finish, OKC 25 Spurs 19 after one. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 13, 2016

Raise your hand if you believe Waiters knew OKC had a foul to give and fouled on purpose. #NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 13, 2016

Thunder on 12-0 run #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 13, 2016

So tired of Spurs flopping! #News9Thunder

— Kelly (@kellyogle) May 13, 2016

Said before game refs will give Spurs more than their share of calls after the attention in other games.

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 13, 2016

Bad call on Dion! #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 13, 2016

Not gonna win w KD continuing a2nd straight game of being loose w ball & not getting better looks. Back to SA getting easier shots. @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 13, 2016

#Thunder playing tight. Trail 14-8. @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 13, 2016

Pop calling early timeout, more playing time for his starters? #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 13, 2016

Billy D says winning 50-50 balls critical. Lotta talk about import of Rbdg. Says D key to 4th qtr success. @news9 pic.twitter.com/QLXwKWFoB9

The Secret Weapon? Talk is Pop may go his big man for inside help. Great listener-the Guy's all ears. @NEWS9 pic.twitter.com/B1nrFiTzvB
