It ran out.
All that luck, all that charm, all that good fortune finally ran out for the Thunder. No four-point plays, no miraculous steal, no improbable putback.
It’s over. The Thunder’s season is finished at the hands of the mighty, timeless Spurs in six games. Kind of hard to really grasp it actually. I feel like I need to keep saying it. It’s over. It is over. It, is over.
When Kevin Durant’s 3 hit front iron with 16 seconds left, it started to wash over me. I didn’t have much optimism that the Thunder could go win a Game 7 in San Antonio, but I thought they were at least going to have that chance. Even when they trailed by 10 heading into the fourth quarter, you knew there was going to be a frenetic, frantic dash to the finish line. They weren’t ever going to go easily.
