OKC Thunder: What they're saying about Game 5

Here’s a look at what folks were saying about Game 5 between Oklahoma City and San Antonio.
by Erik Horne Published: May 29, 2014

* Mike Sherman, Oklahoman sports editor (via Twitter): “Spurs making the Thunder guard for 20 seconds per possession it seems.”

* Kerr: “Scott Brooks had to go all in with his best offensive weapons to change this series. That may hurt him now because of fatigue.”

* Marc Stein, NBA reporter (via Twitter): “(Boris) Diaw is playing at his 2006 Suns best. What San Antonio would do for this kind of ball movement on OKC's floor ... just once.”

* Jenni Carlson, Oklahoman sports columnist (via Twitter): “The Spurs currently have more points in the third quarter than they had at the end of Game 4. Go figure.”

* Royce Young, NBA writer (via Twitter): “This isn't a rest issue for the Thunder. This is a Spurs-playing-awesome issue.”

* Real GM Twitter account: “Spurs vs. Thunder on a neutral floor at the Jerrydome in Dallas. Who wins?”

* Jabari Young, San Antonio Express News Spurs writer (via Twitter): “1st time this series Ibaka has been a non-factor when playing.. 6 pts (3-of-10), 2 blks, 2 rebs...”

* Zach Lowe, NBA writer (via Twitter): “Brilliant performance by the Spurs. Every other storyline is just noise. They were tremendous. You know OKC will have an answer at home.”
