The San Antonio Spurs play the Oklahoma City Thunder in the fifth game of their NBA Play-Offs campaign at the AT&T Center on Tuesday, May 10, starting 8 PM ET.
As per the NBA official notes, the Spurs were defeated 111-97 against the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 4 of the Western Conference Semifinals at Chesapeake Energy Arena on May 8. San
Antonio led at the end of the first, second and third quarters before being outscored 34-16 in the final period to drop their first game this postseason on the road.
Thunder forward Kevin Durant produced a game-high 41 points (14-25 FG, 3-9 3FG, 10-13 FT) to go along with 5 rebounds and 4 assists in 43 minutes. Out of 41-points, 29 were scored in the second half and 17 in the fourth quarter alone.
“There’s no individuals in this game, there’s no individual matchups,” Durant said. “There’s no strictly 1-on-1 matchups in this game. There’s 10 guys on the court. I may guard a guy, or he may guard me, but it’s a whole team trying to stop the ball.”
“I think he did a good job at both ends of the court,” Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. “He had a fine game all the way around without any doubt.”
According to the NBA reports, Durant has been one of the League’s “unstoppable players”, this season.
San Antonio’s Tony Parker, LaMarcus Aldridge and Kawhi Leonard each recorded 20+ points. Parker finished with a team-high 22, Leonard 21 and Aldridge 20.
The series is tied at 2-2. Stay tuned for all the live action.
