I sure can't remember them all, but last night was my 90th Thunder game (not counting pre-season) this year and one that I will not forget. Russell Westbrook's late game hustle was beyond remarkable. He scored 10 points in the final 10 minutes, including a brilliant three-point play to give Oklahoma City a four point lead and leaving the Spurs searching for answers

I do remember Russ' near half-court shot to send the game into overtime at Orlando in game number two of the season, but last night's was the best from Russ.  The superstar finished with 35 points, 11 rebounds and 9 assists against the Spurs in Game 5. One shy of a triple-double and Oklahoma City is one win shy from moving on to the Western Conference Finals.

Before Game 1 on News 9, Dean Blevins and I were asked to give our predictions in the series. I cheated, sort of, saying Thunder in six or the Spurs in seven. Once again the one day rest will favor OKC and the home court advantage never hurts. I love San Antonio, but here's hoping this series is over in six.
