Westbrook Leads Thunder Over Spurs

Russell Westbrook found his rhythm last night and scored 35 points on the San Antonio defense. At the half the Spurs led by five and continued to keep a lead for most of the third quarter. With just 4:03 left in the fourth the Spurs led by six, but this was answered by a Thunder 8-0 run to lead by two with 1:45 on the clock. Tony Parker hit one free throw after that cutting the Thunder lead to one. Russell Westbrook close out the game with an and-one layup. Westbrook neared an triple-double with nine assists and 11 rebounds. “We got stops and Russ was a maniac tonight, keeping us in it.” OKC forward Kevin Durant said. OKC out rebounded the Spurs 54-36. “I hope we respond a little angry with a chip on our shoulder,” Danny Green said after the game. “If you want to be a championship team you have to win on the road. Simple as that.” These teams will play game six on Thursday.
