5/31 - THE "PLEASE THUNDER, WIN GAME 3, PRETTY PLEASE" NANO-THREAD


The Spurs sure do done did do look pretty purty interesting at the moment.

as JEFF LATZKE , AP Sports Writer, reminds us ...

Oklahoma City is in an 0-2 hole as the series shifts to the Chesapeake Energy Arena for Game 3 on Thursday night. Maybe - just maybe - the Thunder found something that works while trying to rally from a 22-point, third-quarter deficit in Game 2.

They toughened up, turned it into a more physical contest and the NBA's best free-throw shooting team had both teams marching to the foul line as the lead shrank to six. The Spurs were able to close it out for a 120-111 victory.

"We're a physical team. We have to play that way," Thunder coach Scott Brooks said Wednesday. "If we play free-flowing basketball, we can beat some teams but we're not at our best if we're not being physical on the defensive end.

"Even on offense, we're a physical team. We're aggressive, we set great screens, we set up our screens and we attack the basket, we have dribble penetration and we're looking for extra shooters. That's when we're at our best."
