Everyone expects a great series between the Thunder and Spurs, and Game 1 certainly lived up to those expectations. A close game had Thunder fans buzzing in San Antonio and all over the country.
SEEN AND HEARD
*There were only a few hundred Thunder fans among the Spurs faithful in San Antonio, but they made their presence heard. They were loud enough to be heard on the TNT broadcast throughout the game and might've been their loudest when Derek Fisher hit that three-pointer at the end of the first half.
*Charles Barkley isn't only a lightning rod in Oklahoma City. The TNT analyst said some not-so-nice things about the city of San Antonio recently, so the Spurs fans had a few signs to welcome him to town. The most interesting featured a picture of Sir Charles in drag, wig and plunging-neckline dress included.
*Spotted at the AT&T Center: Former Spurs legend David Robinson, NBA super fan Jimmy Goldstein, former NFL tight end Kellen Winslow and pro wrestler Shawn Michaels.

@JerryRice: Thunder vs Spurs tonight. Can't wait!
@richarddeitsch: Looking forward to Thunder-Spurs. Just wish Oklahoma City had a shooter like @RealSkipBayless. Guy was like Maravich in H.S.
