Thunder Bench much improved
The San Antonio Spurs knew going into the game against the Oklahoma City Thunder Wednesday night, that it was going to be a heat check. For the Thunder, it was check mate as they cruised to a 94-88 home victory behind Reggie Jackson’s eight straight points in the fourth quarter. Jackson finished with a career high 23 points on 10-14 shooting while LeBron James finished with 24 points and 13 rebounds.
”We couldn’t guard [Jackson] tonight,” San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said. ”He really helped them. He was basically the difference in the game. He did a great job.”
Tony Parker led the Spurs with 16 points and seven assists in the loss which was the third straight at Chesapeake Energy Arena.
The Spurs next face the Orlando Magic on the road tonight then come back home to face the Houston Rockets at home tomorrow night. Great seats and tickets are available for both games.
