The San Antonio Spurs went into Game 5 knowing that the game that night was a “must win” though no one in the Spurs organization would actually say those words. What followed was a convincing win over the elder statesmen of the NBA and more praise from Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich who earler called OKC Guard Kevin Durant the “argubly the best player on the planet.”
“It’s not like we’re playing the Sisters of the Poor,” Popovich said. “I don’t care who you are, you can’t turn the ball over 21 times for 28 points,” Gregg Popovich
For the Spurs to salvage this series, there is only one thing to do and that is win.
“In a nutshell, we have to go win one on the road. There’s not really nothing else to say,” Guard Stephen Jackson
Game 6 is set for Wednesday, 8pm in Oklahoma City.
