As great as R & K are it's incredible what decisions are made in late-game situations. #News9

So does KD try the go-ahead three? #News9Thunder

Are you kidding med? Russ fires a 3?!!!!!!!!!

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) April 19, 2016

KD is too good and too versatile to rely on shooting to get out of funk. Would've been much better off passing, rebounding, D, etc. #NEWS9

I'm tired just watching Russ run, jump, fall, sprint, leap, turn it over, slam dunk, frown, assist, miss, make ... & run some more. @NEWS9

Serge 3 sparks the crowd, let's see if OKC can put this one away, Thunder up 7 #News9Thunder

Donovan needs to step up & change attack. KD's killing him. Go through your best current O threat, Kanter. If stubborn, may lose. @NEWS9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) April 19, 2016

KD may make the rest of them, but he's shooting too much. 5 for 24. @NEWS9

That D ace who blocked shots & hit 19-footers w best in NBA has become a a freakish looking athlete waiving 4 ball behind arc: Serge.@NEWS9

Thunder up 62-59 after three, Durant struggling 5/23 shooting #News9Thunder

With the inability of #Thunder to close (nice way of saying they've choked w 4th qtr leads), they'd better separate from Mavs. Soon. @News9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) April 19, 2016

Awful judgement and lack of hustle by defensive ace Dre Roberson. @News9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) April 19, 2016

Mavericks only have two field goals so far in the second half. Thunder lead 58-50 with 5:43 left in third #News9Thunder

I believe the tide has turned, OKC up 8. #News9Thunder

Russ made that layup look real easy, OKC up 6. #News9Thunder

You'd expect Steph to recover but....if that wheel won't let him be who he is, the door would be cracked for OKC-SA. #Thunder @news9

Mavs 45 Thunder 43 Half, Billy has a few talking points in the locker room. #News9Thunder

Billy the Kid has played everyone but Perk in the first half. @news9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) April 19, 2016

Serge has regressed .... But he's at least improving on putting ball on floor & scoring. & when contesting defenders are flying past. @news9
