Who would have thought that after losing the first two games that the Oklahoma City Thunder would be beat the San Antonio Spurs three games straight? That is exactly what happened with the Thunder’s 108 to 103 victory in game 5 at San Antonio. Now, the Thunder have a chance to close out the Spurs in game 6 at Oklahoma City. The Thunder are unbeatable at home this playoffs.
Leading the Thunder once again was there big three of Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, and James Harden. Durant finished with 27 points, 5 assists, and 4 rebounds. Westbrook added 23 points and a high 12 assists. While Harden had 20 points which included 3 three pointers.

James Harden has become known for his beard as much as his game, and Oklahoma City has taken to his facial hair, even putting it on a building.
For those who don’t remember the story of why Oklahoma Thunder star Kevin Durant chose #35, here’s the explanation he gave to ESPN. 35 is the age his former coach was when he was tragically killed trying to break up a street fight. In the video, Durant describes what his coach meant to him and how he encouraged him over the years even when he didn’t believe himself.
Russell Westbrook takes no mercy on rims across the country when he plays and his dunk in Game 6 against the Spurs was no exception. The dunk was spectacular enough in real time but when the Phantom camera is doing its thing, it is a work of art. Enjoy.

OKLAHOMA CITY After a Game 5 win, Thunder forward Kevin Durant said he and his team never felt like they had to wait their turn in the NBA's version of Game of Thrones.
Maybe Durant's right. There's no hierarchy in the Association, at least since Michael Jordan retired and left the many kingdoms of the league to muddle over the aristocracy.
Heading into this season...
Usually if I'm talking about someone in their 3rd year as a professional and calling them the best ever at something it's probably a joke. Not in this case though. I seriously think this guy should come off the bench for the rest of his career. He still gets great minutes and puts up big points. No reason for him to ever change from the 6th man role. And honestly...
