Larry Brown Sports:
Russell Westbrook is lucky that most of the focus following Game 4 was on his ridiculous outfit (like usual), and not his 2-for-10 shooting performance that resulted in just seven points.

Only 15 teams in NBA history have overcome a 2-0 deficit to win a playoff series. Oklahoma City hasn't done that yet, but a series that once seemed lopsided is tied 2-2.

However, that didn’t stop Thunder fans from taking a potting shot at the famed rapper when he didn’t take Kevin Durant or James Harden on their [...]
Contrary to reaction on Twitter and various media outlets, the Oklahoma City Thunder didn't take advantage of the Western Conference Finals. They simply kept their season alive. After going down 2-0, there was no way the Thunder could afford to lose. Going down 3-0 or 3-1 would certainly have made coming back against the San Antonio Spurs without the benefit of home court...
