OKLAHOMA CITY -- The streak is over. The series might only be beginning.
Kevin Durant scored 22 points, Thabo Sefolosha set playoff career bests with
19 points and six steals, and the Oklahoma City Thunder snapped San Antonio's
20-game winning streak by beating the Spurs 102-82 in Game 3 of the Western
Conference finals Thursday night.
Oklahoma City closed its series deficit to 2-1 and will host Game 4 on
"We never thought these guys had an advantage over us even though we had lost
a few," Durant said. "It was just good that we took it to 2-1. We didn't want
to go down 0-3."
Sefolosha threw a wrench in the Spurs' well-oiled offense at the start,
getting four steals in the first 3 minutes. The Spurs ended up committing a
postseason-worst 21 turnovers and scoring their fewest points all season.
San Antonio had been averaging 109.4 points per game during its
month-and-a-half winning streak and had been held to double-digits only twice.
"We just played a good basketball game," Thunder coach Scott Brooks said. "We
played with a lot of force, we played with good energy, but we played
"That's who we are. That's how we win."
Tony Parker and Stephen Jackson led the Spurs with 16 points apiece. Tim
Duncan had 11 points on 5 for 15 shooting, taking 11 of San Antonio's first
25 shots as the offense went through the All-Star center instead of Parker.
"They played like it was a closeout game, both offensively and defensively,"
Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "They were very active, physical; they moved
the ball well on offense. They did all those things better than we did. They
beat us good."
The Spurs, who already set an NBA record for the longest winning streak
carried over from the regular season into the playoffs, were trying to match
the league mark for most wins to start the postseason. The Lakers won 11
straight to start the 1989 and 2001 playoffs, getting swept in the NBA Finals
the first time and winning it all the second.
The Spurs hadn't lost since April 11 at home against the Lakers.
"We are a prideful team. It's no fun being down 0-2. It's no fun," Brooks
said. "But we weren't looking at the game thinking, 'Oh my gosh, we have a
chance to be down 0-3.' We were looking at the game that we have a chance to
be 1-2 after this game, and I give our guys a lot of credit. They believe in
each other and they always play hard for each other."
Parker and Duncan didn't play in the final 15 minutes, and Popovich pulled
the plug after a series of three straight turnovers allowed the deficit to
reach 23 points early in the fourth quarter.
Sefolosha had a right-handed dunk off a lob pass from Russell Westbrook, who
followed with his own two-handed jam on an alley-oop pass, and Sefolosha
followed with a reverse layup on another turnover-fueled fast-break chance to
push the lead to 86-63 with 9:48 left.
The Thunder put together another 9-0 run coinciding with Manu Ginobili coming
out of the game and featuring Serge Ibaka sticking his tongue out after
nailing a jumper from the top of the key. Brooks soon followed Popovich and
pulled his own front-line players with the game well in hand.
"You're not going to beat this team by playing one-effort basketball," Brooks
said. "You're going to have to have two, three, four, even five. And they
make you do that because they pass the ball so well, they spread the floor so
Popovich said the Thunder played harder and smarter than the Spurs.
"They did definitely play with a lot more energy, a lot more passion than us
tonight," said Parker, who committed five turnovers.
The Spurs wiped out a 24-point deficit in Game 3 against the Clippers in Los
Angeles in the previous round, but they weren't recovering in this one.
San Antonio managed only 24 points in the paint after averaging 46 through
the first two games of the series and 47.8 through the playoffs.
Oklahoma City already held a 28-8 scoring edge in the paint while taking a
54-41 halftime lead, and it never got better for San Antonio, which couldn't
get any closer than 11 points in the second half.
"We wanted to bounce back after two losses like that. We had to play better
and we did that tonight," Sefolosha said. "We played with energy; we played
with passion in front of our home crowd. They did a great job giving us a
The Thunder scored the game's first eight points, feeding off Sefolosha's
steals, but San Antonio recovered in time to take the lead with more than 5
minutes left in the opening period.
Oklahoma City took the lead early in the second quarter, and there was no
Sefolosha set up Ibaka's two-handed dunk and hit a 3-pointer during a 13-1
run, with San Antonio's only point coming on a free throw by Ginobili after
Durant was called for a technical foul while arguing a call from the bench.
Oklahoma City's lead ballooned to 15 when Kendrick Perkins grabbed
Westbrook's air ball and dunked it with two hands.
