LEONARD SHINES LATE

If nothing else, San Antonio's Kawhi Leonard made things interesting in the final two minutes after Kevin Durant took over in the fourth quarter.

Leonard hit a pair of 3-pointers to cut the Thunder's lead to six with 1:23 remaining before Durant's streak of 16 consecutive points was snapped when he found James Harden wide open for a 3-pointer of his own. That put Oklahoma City ahead by nine.

Leonard finished with 17 points, hitting 3 of 4 from behind the 3-point line and going 7 of 8 from the floor overall.

POST-GAME GATHERING

After Game 3 on Thursday night, a crowd of roughly 500 lingered to watch the TNT postgame show in the southwest corner of The Peake.

After Game 4, the crowd appeared to have grown to approximately 1,000 people, who incessantly chanted “O-K-C” during commercial breaks.

SLOW TO RESPOND

With 55.4 seconds left in the first quarter, Thunder guard Russell Westbrook single-handedly was responsible for a six-point swing after he missed a layup and was slow to get back on defense. Westbrook made a last-second dash to contest Manu Ginobili's 3-pointer from the left wing, which he made while being fouled. Ginobili made the free throw to give San Antonio a 26-24 lead.

OKC coach Scott Brooks immediately inserted Thabo Sefolosha for Westbrook, who didn't return until the 6:17 mark of the second quarter.
