OKC got away with 19 turnovers in the opener but not 2-nite, too many missed 3's & another question mark down the stretch #News9Thunder

Game Over! Spurs 93 Thunder 85

2 second half OKC FTs vs 19 in 1st. Either Spurs have done good job of not fouling or refs have done a bad job of not calling. @news9
