Spurs Drop Game 2 to Thunder
Man, the San Antonio Spurs did not start out well at all, they were ice cold from the floor and dug themselves a hole. However, they battled back on three different occasions but fell short each time. Aldridge erupted for 41 points, but didn't have much other help. Kawhi added 14 and Manu tallied 11. The game ended on a bizarre timeline of events and some controversy of a missed call. The final outcome was a one point defeat for the Spurs 98-97. The Thunder have tied the series 1-1 as homecourt switches to OKC on Friday. Being at the game last night I can tell you the atmosphere was electric and the intensity was off the charts. Spurs fans were furious with the no call, but the final result is what it is. If the game comes down to a missed call by the refs, that is not the reason you lose. The Spurs lacked their usual execution out of the gate and their focus might not have been at a 100%. We know they will make adjustments for Friday's contest, and this series has the makeup to be most exciting series of the 2016 playoffs so far. Luckily it was only game two of a seven game series with a lot of basketball to be played. GO SPURS GO!
