Thunder “turns over” home court advantage back to Spurs

Thunder “turns over” home court advantage back to Spurs

The NBA regular season is way too long. Like War and Peace long. 82 games is a lot, and sometimes can lull even the most serious basketball fans into a mid season slumber.

However, one thing the regular season teaches us is that you usually are who you are.

So why should anyone be surprised by what unfolded down the stretch in the Game 3 of the OKC-San Antonio playoff series?

The Thunder did what the Thunder does late in games.

*Turn the ball over
*Take bad shots
*Miss defensive assignments

Seen this movie before? There were 82 regular season screenings of it, so surely you’ve seen it a few times.

Sometimes there are some great scenes before the ending, but too often that ends up being a disappointment.

Not sure OKC can flip this script either.

The Thunder has already done the improbable in Act II, by winning in San Antonio. And now they’ll have to win again on the Spurs home floor to take this series. And that’s if they can take Act IV tomorrow night in OKC.

The Thunder had game 3 in their clutches Friday night, but couldn’t close the deal, again.
This movie is getting “Dumb and Dumberer.”

Can we get a rewrite?

Or else we’ll be stuck with “The Rise and Fall of Hero Ball.”

That’s a movie Thunder fans are tired of buying tickets to see.
