In Game 2 of WCF, Tony Parker scores 34 to offset Durant, Harden and Westbrook 120-111 (with TNT notes)Posted in Blogroll on May 30th, 2012 by Michael Tillery
I think they made him angry last night…(what’s your caption?)
OKC tried the hack-a-Splitter after the Spurs rocked out like efficient robots and shot up by twenty. San Antonio’s rhythm was affected but not enough and the Spurs now have a 2-0 lead in the best of seven Western Conference Finals. It seemed that shots weren’t contested. Is it simply San Antonio is a better team or is it that the Thunder lack the true defensive intensity it takes to win late in the playoffs? Tony Parker went off and scored 34 on 16-21 shooting. Duncan stole time and put Serge Ibaka up on some kid’s laughing wall the kid won’t take down until he leaves for college. OKC got 88 combined points from Durant, Harden and Westbrook and still lost in a game the score very much could have been a lot worse. When the Spurs put up 120, pack it in and get ready for the next run because you just became their 20th straight victim in a span of 48 days. Ginobli had 20, Leonard had 18 and the old man Duncan after the jump had 11 points, 12 boards, 6 assists and 4 blocks.
