Thunder drops down to no. 9 in West after Spurs defeat

It seemed like the Thunder victory was established when they cracked up the biggest lead of 23 points, but the San Antonio surprisingly came back and managed to bag a 3 point win.

Pau George looking for a miracle

Both are teams seeking for vengeance against the defending champs, Russell Westbrook wants to defeat the Warriors for his grudges against former partner Kevin Durant, whilst the San Antonio wants to get back on the Dubs to avenge Kawhi Leonard’s  as well as the team’s fall when their ace was injured badly in the conference finals series.  But it seems like the Spurs are way ahead of this chase for redemption.

LaMarcus Aldridge led Spurs to their 10th victory with 26 points, taking free throws carefully, shooting 10 out of 12 backed up by Danny Green with 17 points, shooting 5 triples.

OKC in full control of the 1st 12 minutes, sizzled with a humongous 18 – 0 run in the final 5 minutes of the 1st spearheaded by OKC’s triple threat, 1st quarter ended 32 – 15 in favor of the Raging Thunder.

17 point lead even got more swollen up to a 23 point deficit in the early minutes of the 2nd quarter, but it’s Spurs turn to bolster their offense with a 10 – 0 run. Danny Green and Pau Gasol ran the offense, entering the dugout only behind 7 points, 55-48.

It was a tied ball game at the before the start of the 4th, Spurs slowly got back every quarter that passed whilst OKC ran out of steam as the game approaches the final crucial minutes. Their seemingly winning 23 point lead completely melted down.

It was a clear sign that Spurs defeated the OKC in the clash evidenced by Russell Westbrook’s number who usually plays and finishes with a triple-double but at the end of the game, Westbrook was one assist and rebound short to match his ‘usual’ game.

Scores

Spurs 104 – Aldridge 26, Green 17, Gasol 14, Anderson 10, Mills 8, bench – 29

Thunder 101 – Anthony 20, George 18, Adams 16, Westbrook 15, Roberson 2, bench - 30
