Aldridge & Leonard combined to shoot 28-36.
KD & Russ 11 of 34. That's 17 more made shots w Aldridge making 7 more himself than KD/Russ.

Just don't lose by 40. But i wouldn't bet against it, 117-80, 5:00, 4th.

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 1, 2016

Let the record show that SA shot over 68 percent before subs hit the floor in 4th. This historically great defense got historically great O.

Can't miss Spurs 105 Thunder 66 after three #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 1, 2016

This game counts as one loss right? #News9Sports

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 1, 2016

The Spurs are simply playing out of their minds.#news9thunder

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 1, 2016

Spurs may hit the century mark in the 3rd. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 1, 2016

T on Russ! #News9Sports

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 1, 2016

#Thunder playing harder, smarter to begin 3rd. But losing ground, 85-53. Really gonna be a test to fight hard & not lose composure.

I know he's not gonna make them all, but can't OKC get someone in area code of Aldridge before he hits another 18-footer? #NEWS9Thunder

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 1, 2016

Spurs up by 33 and yet they're the only team playing with defensive intensity. We haven't played any D since game 1 against Mavs.

— Kelly (@kellyogle) May 1, 2016

Spurs 73 Thunder 40 Half, Durant 5-14 shooting 11pts. Russ 3-12 shooting 8pts. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 1, 2016

The good news? #Thunder have only 6 turnovers.
And I would say it's good news that it's a 7-game series. However....@NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 1, 2016

Same defense we played against the Mavericks, difference is on the other end San Antonio can stop us, Dallas couldn't.

— Kelly (@kellyogle) May 1, 2016

How many times will OKC foul at the three-point line? #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 1, 2016

Where's the effort? Your down 30 & a D Rbd hits floor in gimme putt range from 4 #Thunder players & SA gets OR. Inexcusable. @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 1, 2016

Good news: this will still only count as one loss. #GlassHalfFull #News9Thunder

Last postseason game I saw in Texas, OU lost by 44. The Oklahoma City Thunder are on pace 2 surpass that. In the 3rd. 53-24.#NEWS9Thunder

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 1, 2016

Wow, 80 percent shooting, 5-6 behind the arc, Spurs not slowing up, leading 53-24 #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 1, 2016

This is a defensive clinic (see russ 0-5), but Spurs were more impressive on O, 18 22, only 82 percent. #NEWS9Thunder

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 1, 2016

43-20 end 1. Spurs can't play better, or OKC worse. They'd best compete on D more! KD & #Thunder must've blown 8 layups. #News9Thunder

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 1, 2016

The Spurs miss at the buzzer but lead big 43-20 after one, SA sizzling at 81% shooting. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 1, 2016

Down 20. Singler for KD. Russ hasnt scored. Ouch

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 1, 2016

Somebody tell the Spurs it's ok to miss once in awhile, up to 80 percent. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 1, 2016

Spurs shooting 76.9, OKC 29.4, ouch #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 1, 2016

.@spurs putting on a clinic early vs. @okcthunder. #News9Thunder #WellOiledMachine #OKCvsSAS

— Chuck Fisher (@cfishernews9) May 1, 2016

Spurs near-flawless. Leonard corralling Russ. Better not get behind too far behind this bunch, esp at home. #News9Thunder

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) May 1, 2016

Not the start they were wanting, Spurs up 17-6 #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) May 1, 2016

When Jimmy is in the house you know it's a big game. #News9Thunder pic.twitter.com/rz9Un7TDdP

KD's been out shooting since 2 hrs b4 tip of awfully big Game 1. Pulling early upset would be huge. #News9Thunder pic.twitter.com/jWfHGezmHg

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) April 30, 2016

KD steady as ever. Getting no headline comments from this cat. @news9 @News9Thunder pic.twitter.com/y7zlky0Rcp

Spurs guard Patty Mills expects a long series with OKC. A possession by possession matchup. #News9Thunder

Don't try this at home. Andre Roberson from 3 at shoot around in San Antone. @news9 #Thunder pic.twitter.com/kLXbLzfm32
