WHAT THEY'RE SAYING

Here's a look at what coaches, players, analysts and others had to say during Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals on Thursday in Oklahoma City:

* TNT analyst Steve Kerr: “(The Thunder has) finally figured out they're not going to beat San Antonio off the dribble. They've got to make that extra pass and they're doing exactly that tonight.”

* TNT analyst Reggie Miller: “(Thabo Sefolosha) gets the game ball for what he's done. Sefolosha's finger prints are all over Game 3.”

* Kerr: “You're going to look at the stat sheet tomorrow and say ‘Egh, (Russell Westbrook) was all right.' But I tell you, he's been the biggest difference tonight.”

* Kerr: “I thought the Spurs were just out-toughed tonight.”

* Sefolosha: “I think switching me to (Tony) Parker worked out well for us. It was good to get a win in front of our home crowd and get our confidence up.”

* Sefolosha: “We knew coming back home, it would be a different ballgame.”

* TNT analyst Charles Barkley: “I will tell you, everybody in Oklahoma has been fantastic.”

* TNT studio host Ernie Johnson: “Well the governor got this one right. Mary Fallin predicted the Thunder would win.”

* Barkley: “This is an impressive home court.”

* TNT analyst Shaquille O'Neal: “(The Thunder) fed off the energy of the crowd. The good thing was they maintained it for all four quarters.”

* Thunder coach Scott Brooks: “Defensively, that was as well as you could play against the best team in basketball.”
