After really getting stymied over the course of the first two games of this series, the Thunder have just stormed back and figured out how to make the most out of their opportunities against a San Antonio team that is finally starting to show its age and perhaps its lack of experience. Game 5 marked the very first time that we saw the bench and role players fail the Spurs miserably. Manu Ginobili started the game, and the usual starter, Danny Green played just four minutes and didn’t log a single point. Manu though, had 34, and he was really the only man that was keeping the team in the game. Still, 21 turnovers for the Spurs shouldn’t happen again. On the other side of the court, we are really worried about the physicality of the Thunder. They have had just a total of 12 offensive rebounds in the last two games, and they are getting beaten to death on the boards by San Antonio. Can they figure out how to win this one at home? That really might be the case, but in the end, we are still going to want the points on our side, just as we have had for this entire series.
