Here’s a look at what folks were saying about Game 5 between Oklahoma City and San Antonio:

* Steve Kerr, TNT analyst: “I would say starting (Matt) Bonner is a sign of desperation, and I don’t mean that in a negative way.”

* Jeff McDonald, San Antonio Express News Spurs writer (via Twitter): “Bonner move has opened up Spurs' offense, but also takes out rim protector at the other end. Have to give up something to get something.”

* Michael Lee, Washington Post Wizards/NBA writer (via Twitter): “Serge Ibaka covers so much ground, it's frightening. But I'm surprised the Spurs keep thinking that they can finesse a shot blocker.”

* Marc J. Spears, Yahoo Sports NBA writer (via Twitter), on Russell Westbrook first-quarter dunk: “The backboard just stopped shaking. A point guard is not supposed to be able to do that.”

* Sam Amick, USA Today NBA writer (via Twitter): “Durant doesn't get mad often, but he was furious they didn't let him check in there, ‘That's bull**** man, and you know it,’ to clock man.”

* Andrew Bailey, Bleacher Report NBA columnist (via Twitter): “Durant makes really bad shots look just fine and dandy.”

* ESPN’s Numbers Never Lie Twitter account: “The Game 5 winner of a tied best-of-7 NBA series goes on to win it 81.9% of the time (145-32).”
