* Kerr, also in the first half: “The Spurs are easily playing the best game they've played all season.”

* 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.”

* Thunder GM Sam Presti: “It's a credit to the coaches and the players. This is a special group of people.”

* Thunder coach Scott Brooks: “We were worried about winning one game. But we stuck together just like families do.”

* Durant: “This is a blessing to play with these great players in this great city.”

* 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.”

* 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).”
