The Thunder cruised past the Spurs 102-82 in Game 3 at the Chesapeake Energy Arena, here in Oklahoma City, after shutting down Tony Parker, Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili in the last game and they are confident of doing the same to even the series at 2-2 Saturday.
Kevin Durant led the way, but he did got all round support from his fellow troopers and Scott Brooks’ men will have to find the same energy to hand San Antonio back-to-back defeats – something not very easy to do.
The following are how things look, in terms of stats heading into Saturday’s game, with Durant and Russell Westbrook leading the way in the scoring department and Parker heading up the distribution list.

Chesapeake Energy Arena, Oklahoma City, OK
San Antonio, still undefeated in the playoffs, handed the Thunder back-to-back defeat in the opening games in Texas, with Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker coming up big time in Game 1 and Games 2.
The Thunder have been productive with their care-free pretty style up till this point, but may have to change this up a bit to stop a Spurs side, which is on an impressive 20 game winning streak.
“We’re a physical team. We have to play that way,” Thunder head coach Scott Brooks said this week. “If we play free-flowing basketball, we can beat some teams but we’re not at our best if we’re not being physical on the defensive end.
“Even on offense, we’re a physical team.
“We’re aggressive, we set great screens, we set up our screens and we attack the basket, we have dribble penetration and we’re looking for extra shooters. That’s when we’re at our best.”
The Thunder at the moment is unable to find a way to completely breakdown the likes of Tim Duncan, Parker and Ginobili with their own style – involving Kevin Durant, Serge Ibaka and Russell Westbrook, but veteran guard Derek Fisher says the team still has faith.
“We’re not down on ourselves,” Fisher, a former Los Angeles Lakers point guard.
“We’re obviously disappointed. We don’t like to lose.
“But we still feel good about our ability to follow our game plan, do some of the things we need to do, make some adjustments and give ourselves a chance to win Game 3.”
“You can talk about Xs and Os and adjustments and rotations and all those things but at the end of the day, sometimes you just have to want it,” he said.
“How you define that, how you lay that out as a game plan, I don’t know. But when you want it bad enough, you figure it out.
