Nuggets from my notebook from Tuesday's Game 2 loss at San Antonio.
- As the saying goes, everything that could go wrong did go wrong. Early, often and all night for the Oklahoma City Thunder. Even when the Thunder stormed back from a 22-point deficit and pulled within six, OKC was plagued by a bad bounce here and a tough break there. It was just that kind of night. The kind you'd just as soon like to forget ever happened. The kind you'd like to write off as one of those occasional clunkers that come around in this league's marathon season. But the problem is you can't do either of those things after Tuesday night's loss. Because what this win did for the Spurs was prove to the Thunder, and every other person with a basketball brain, that San Antonio is simply the better team. There was only a sliver of doubt before this series started. Now, even that has been shredded like the Thunder's defense against Tony Parker in the pick-and-roll. This Western Conference final might still be far from over. But something, something drastic, must change and change soon for the Thunder. Or else there's no way OKC wins four out of five and sees its first ever NBA Finals.
