#DavidWest can't guard @KDTrey5 out on the floor. #KD should keep taking it every time. #News9Thunder #SASvsOKC

I like the bench tonight, Waiters, Kanter, Foye#News9Thunder

Crowd trying to will team to win. Take that back. Their screaming for a free t-shirt. @news9 #Thunder

Hang On Thunder Fans! #News9Thunder

#Thunder need to extend lead, bc Spurs will finish strong, and you how our local Thumpers tend to stagger late, near the tape. @news9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 9, 2016

OKC picks up Nazr, Spurs pick up David West. @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 9, 2016

How come we keep seeing tweets from alleged sports media ppl watching Game Of Thrones and not this? Tape it. @news9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 9, 2016

so close, OKC shooting 50.8, Spurs 50.7 #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 9, 2016

Russ is 4 of 13. Good on the assists but dreadful shooting...& an off night on D. Gonna require him to play winning BB to win. @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 9, 2016

Now this is playoff basketball. Doesn't get any better than this. Unless you can win 'em all 140-69. @NEWS9Thunder

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 9, 2016

The Randy Foye fan club is back up and running. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 9, 2016

Spurs 81 Thunder 77, of course SA hits their first 2 three's at the end of the 3rd. #News9Thunder

Wow, the Spurs are scoreless behind the 3-point line. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 9, 2016

Falling behind Spurs and playing catch-up must be like spotting Joey Chestnut a couple of dogs in a hot-dog eating contest. @news9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 9, 2016

KD must play a lot stronger w ball. And step up like the star he is. He can't 'not' get to the line & have 'soft' misses on drives. @news9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 9, 2016

#Thunder won't win w Russ going 2-9. He & KD just 6-21. Spurs contest/always stop iso ball. Might take remarkable '3' half to win. @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 9, 2016

Leonard by far best player on floor--and in series. Playing stronger at rim & a deceivingly brilliant BB IQ. 9-0 run the dagger? @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 9, 2016

.@RealStevenAdams is tied with @KDTrey5 with 12 points @ half. That's good for #OKC. Adams' points come easy. #easybuckets #News9Thunder

— Chuck Fisher (@cfishernews9) May 9, 2016

Spurs 53 Thunder 45 Half, KD (4-12) 12pts, Russ (2-9) 5pts, 8 assists, Adams 12pts, 6 rebs #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 9, 2016

Great fly-by contest by Leonard forcing KD miss from 3. Another WINNING PLAY by Spurs. @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 9, 2016

Adams and Waiters lead OKC in scoring (10pts) each and hanging in there with the Spurs. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 9, 2016

Blitz pal John Holcomb points out that's second time KD has hustled back to get into strong defensive position. Great example! @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 9, 2016

Thunder containing Aldridge (3-8) & doing OK on Leonard (4-7). Russ must stop Old Man Parker. #news9Thunder

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 9, 2016

Hello Dion! 10pts ,Thunder cut Spurs lead to six. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 9, 2016

If Russ can't keep up w Parker, he can't keep up with many point guards in this league. Painful truth. Although he has the capacity. @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 9, 2016

Utilize your timeouts, keep Russ in and keep feeding Steven. Adams leads OKC with 8 pts. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 9, 2016

Billy. You can play rookie Cam Payne next year. Not now. Not yesterday. Not tomorrow. He's not ready. @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 9, 2016

Here's another common theme. OKC lucky to get ball in hands 35-feet from basket to initiate O. Opposite & layup city on other end. @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 9, 2016

5 turnovers in the 1st Q for @okcthunder, and the @spurs are getting easy baskets of the TO's. Not a good sign. #News9Thunder #SASvsOKC

— Chuck Fisher (@cfishernews9) May 9, 2016

Spurs 27 Thunder 17 after one, 5 Thunder turnovers #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 9, 2016

For the umpteenth time, KD gets fewer calls than any superstar I can remember. And it's killing the #Thunder. Playing uphill. @NEWS9Thunder

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 9, 2016

This feels familiar, 15-25. All the pressure in the world on #Thunder. #Spurs playing w house money...& extremely confident. @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 9, 2016

#Thunder desperately needs Russ to find mid-range jumper game. Entirely changes flow of OKC offense. Otherwise, a grind-fest #NEWS9Thunder

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 9, 2016

Mo Cheeks had to separate Russ from the official,, Russ picks up T. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 9, 2016

.@okcthunder starts 0-for-5 on 3's. Good 3P shooting not needed to win. #OKC only shot 26% in GM2. Def/T.O.'s key. #News9Thunder #OKCvsSAS

— Chuck Fisher (@cfishernews9) May 9, 2016

Roberson is so paranoid about his offensive game that he got a RBD in uncontested outback range but, looked to get rid of hot tater. @news9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 9, 2016

Thunder down 3 early, 0-5 from 3-point range. Adams leads the way with 5pts. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 9, 2016

This is a much different Russ. Playing more to his strengths. But these Spurs are so sound & so good, gotta play gr8 to have chance. @news9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 9, 2016

Tony Parker. Gotta think Russ isn't going 2 play loose D that allowed him & Spurs to get initial 15-OT lead. @news9 pic.twitter.com/oxi2v3QpqL
