The NBA playoff semi-finals have been very back and forth for the San Antonio Spurs and the Oklahoma City Thunder. With the series tied, the Spurs look to pull off a big win as they head back to Texas for Game 5. Click right here to watch the live stream and catch all the action!
It’s anyone’s series in the battle between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the San Antonio Spurs! The two teams have put up quite a fight throughout the NBA playoffs, making for an extremely exciting four games. While Game 5 may not be a series-ending match, it puts one of the teams ahead at 3-2 over their opponent — so you won’t want to miss these two teams duke it out!
The last time we watched the Thunder take on the Spurs in San Antonio, OKC barely came out on top with a 98-97 win. Before that, though, the Spurs completely blew the Thunder out of the water with a crushing 32-point defeat — so clearly the Spurs put up their best fight on their home court! But with the Thunder coming off a big home win of their own in Game 4, both squads have something to fuel their fire!
Although this game puts one team ahead of the other, it’s very likely that won’t matter until Game 7. In the eight times the Spurs and Thunder have faced each other throughout the 2015-2016 regular season and playoffs, they have each won four games, proving just how well-matched these teams are. And because they have faced each other so many times, they’re familiar with how the other team plays…so maybe they’ll be switching things up to get ahead tonight?
Whatever either team’s plan of attack may be, Thunder center Enes Kanter is very aware of just how important this game is — and that the Spurs will be playing extremely tough on their home turf. But that isn’t going to stop the Thunder from doing the same!
“It’s going to be the toughest game all year,” Kanter said, according to NBA.com. “They’re going to come out ready, but we can’t worry about what they’re doing. We have to come out ready.”
