They stood out much more for Game 5. The Spurs put white T-shirts that read “Spurs Playoffs, IT'S ELECTRIFYING” on every chair in the arena. Said Suzanne, “They're following Oklahoma City.”
TWEET IT UP
@stephenasmith: It's over. KD and the crew are heading back to OKC to close out the Spurs. Can't see it any other way. Props to Jalen and Tim Legler
@MySecondEmpire: A nod to Sam Presti. Interviewed him once; after, he wanted to go over it, what he said right and wrong. Smart, analytical guy.
@jalenrose: I might have to get my DJ @Espngreeny to cue the theme music for OKC. “They may be Young but their Reeaaddaaayy”
@ZachLowe_SI: Here's the thing w/ OKC: Folks nit-pick and nit-pick (Westbrook's a hog! Brooks can't coach!), and they just win, score, advance, improve.
@tonyjefferson1: Ay how wild is it gonna be on wednesday when we advance to the finals. I will throw a party ur all invited bring your own applesauce tho
@curtgOK: There hasn't been disappointment in San Antonio like this since Pee Wee found out there's no basement in the Alamo.
Highlights from the live chat at NewsOK.com during Game 5:
8:29: ThunderSonics: more and more I'm just sure we are better than the Spurs...and that is not just my heart talking
9:05: BB in San Diego: Ernie Johnson looks like like Alton Brown on the Food Network, must be brothers.
9:29: DM: gotta weather this 1st rush by spurs
9:35: BB37: Years from now, future generations will believe that Perkins smiled.
10:36: Gary: I cannot believe I can get so wrapped up in something as I do these games. My heart just may not last
10:46: Brandon: the peake will be ridiculous
