* TNT analyst Reggie Miller in the third quarter: “I hope people watching this game realize they're watching greatness grow up. Kevin Durant is willing his team to win.”

* Miller: “Derek Fisher is the modern-day Robert Horry. Big shot after big shot.”

* Thunder guard Derek Fisher: “It's happening before our eyes. We're just playing and doing it for each other. Great things happen when you do it for each other.”

* Kerr: “Just an amazing display of basketball. I don't know if we've ever seen a 23-year old quite like Kevin Durant. He was just unbelievable.”

* Kerr: “I would give Oklahoma City the advantage over (Miami or Boston). This is a terrific team and I think they're well equipped to go on and win a championship.”

* TNT analyst Charles Barkley: “Too young. Too good. The Thunder was just the better team.”

* Spurs guard Manu Ginobili: “We can't have their legs, their energy. We're never going to jump as high or run as fast (as the Thunder).”
