    The Thunder’s collapse in the final 2:06 – five turnovers and just one shot attempt – seems like something worth of watching in film study, but Durant said the Thunder didn’t watch any video from Game 6. “We know all about this team,” Durant said. “We know what we have to do.”

    How hard is a Game 7? How hard will be this winner-take-all showdown for the Western Conference championship? Even the team with all the momentum, and all the favor of home court advantage, and all the confidence from winning not just an NBA-record 73 regular-season games but a character-defining Game 6 in the Oklahoma City fiery furnace, sees Game 7 as a major mountain to climb.

    HOUSTON (AP) — Authorities in central Texas found two more bodies along flooded streams Sunday, bringing the death toll from flooding the state to six. It's unclear whether a body found in Travis County near Austin is one of the two people still missing in Texas. An 11-year-old boy is still missing in central Kansas, too. The latest flooding victim identified by authorities was a woman who died when the car she was riding in was swept from the street by the flooded Cypress Creek about 1:30 a.m. Sunday, Kendall County sheriff's Cpl. Reid Daly said. The car, with three occupants, was in Comfort, about 45 miles north of San Antonio. The driver made it to shore, and a female passenger was rescued from a tree.

    ST. LOUIS (AP) — Never mind toasters, blenders and slow cookers. Joplin, Missouri, tornado survivors Kayla and Ricky Smith had a more practical request for a wedding gift — shelter from the next big storm. The Smiths were on the leading edge of an odd trend in Tornado Alley: Engaged couples using bridal registries or word of mouth to request donations so they can purchase safe rooms, which are strong, pre-fabricated shelters typically installed in houses or garages. Several tornadoes have ravaged the Midwest and South in recent years. A month before the May 22, 2011, tornado in Joplin, which killed 161 people and destroyed 7,000 homes, hundreds died in a series of deadly tornadoes in the South. And a tornado in Moore, Okl

    The wedding plans had been made months in advance: a big, beautiful service in the groom’s hometown of Waxahachie. But on May 14, just two weeks before the big day, the bride’s mother almost died in a car crash on Interstate 20 near Canton. Felicity Valencia was flown to Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, where she underwent multiple surgeries. “I didn’t know if we were going to be able to get married,” said Ashley Lorraine, 22, also of Waxahachie. “All of our plans had been erased.” But her mother’s condition was more important. Despite the severity of Valencia’s injuries — her left arm had to be amputated, and she needed a skin graft on her left thigh — she was alive and stable. “We really had no idea what was going to happen,” said the groom, Navy Fireman Matthew Haught, 20. But thanks to the staff at Baylor, Valencia is still recovering at the hospital and was able to see her daughter get married Saturday, in a makeshift wedding in the hospital chapel.
