View from the enemy: 48 Minutes of Hell
Please don’t let this be another learning experience.
I can just see it now. That’s the spin if Game 6 doesn’t go according to plan. Forget that noise. It’s time. No more learning. No more growing up. Just go win the damn game.
No real reason to go on and on about the stakes here. A win, and it’s a shot at glory. A loss, and if you think you’re panicked and nervous now, just wait. Game 7 on the road will be the sports equivalent of getting married and having your first child 400 times in one day.
It feels like this is the moment. So many things have happened during this postseason run, so many experiences. If the Thunder are truly going to break through and take that step, it needs to happen tonight. Otherwise, it might be back to lessons learned. The situation is ideal, the Thunder are at home and they have the Spurs reeling.
Time to close out and move on.
Tip at 8:00 CT. Go Finals.
