Obvious mismatch without Ibaka.  Big chance for sweep.
Spurs dominated in every aspect;
1. Offense -Spurs dominated starters and bench (OKC only have durant and westbrook to score, maybe reggie jackson)
2. Defense - Spurs dominated starters and bench (OKC Ibaka's gone, Perkins is useless, Sefolosha is not as affective this season, only Adams seems to play well)
3. Coach - Pop can outcoach Brooks anytime.  Noticed how Pop called timeout whenever OKC can score 2 or 3 consecutives.  Then came back and destroyed them again.  Didn't give OKC chance to get hot.

Better offense, better defense, better bench, better coach and get +2?

With well rest, spurs is dangerous.  Betting Heat and Spurs for next 2.  Take Spurs for championship

It's not gonna matter who's out. OKC wins this one no matter what.

That's why they are favorites

Sports is not real brothers!

Nobody saw NY Rangers lose last night on purpose? Nobody saw Detroit Tigers lose the other day on purpose? This happens everyday in sports. Nothing new under the sun. You just have to be awake and aware so you can see it happening.

Spurs have last season stuck in their mind. They are not going to make the same mistake again. They are not going to show any mercy and they will try and get as much rest as possible. Spurs commit less fouls then almost all other teams in the NBA. If OKC can't show 40 free throws a game then they do not stand a chance. They are forcing refs to call phantom calls to even have a chance at winning this game. 

Spurs all the way!

I am a little worried what people see in the thunder after the first two games and why the spurs line is still going up, now at +2.5

The only way OKC wins game 3 is by shutting San Antonio down. If Ibaka plays 30+ minutes, this game will definitely go under

It kinda sucks being behind wiped to this point for OKC. Do they save grace by winning? They could if they can win. San Antonio +2.5 seems like a gift. Merry Christmas!

Did I miss something in the first two games to think okc even has a chance? You think a team arguing with each others play will rise up after its star players were benched a quarter to end the previous game? I agree with what the previous poster said about Spurs not letting off the gas after last year.

Poor, poor K.D.  Has to put up with a ball hog and someone who thinks he is  a super power player in Westbrook. What a freaking joke Westbrook is. Here is a suggestion OKC, get rid of Westbrook because he is not all that, and get a player who knows when to pass off the ball when he knows he doesn't have a good shot.  Until then, OKC will not have a chance at a championship.

IMHO Ibaka is over emphasized, Adams has filled in admirably(stats:last 3 games.It's something else.

Hey MGM, I wanted to thank you for your post on Mia@Ind. gm 1.

I was going to take Mia, but after reading what your play, I stood down.  Saved me some Bucks.

The same tonight , I like Spurs, from what I've seen they should win this gm.. Exactly why do you feel OKC is the play tonight?

I'm not saying that OKC can't win but Durant or Westbrook have to be hot for that to happen.  On the other hand, Spurs is very balanced that you don't need to have a perfect player to win the game.  Ibaka will not be 100% for sure.  When was the last time you saw a player ruled out for the season but came back after a few days of rest?  It's tough to take OKC when they're down average of 25pts the last two games home or not.  But goodluck everyone, i'm still taking Spurs.
