Big Picture Better; Thunder stay positive to advance past Clippers

They trailed early, much like game five, but didn’t waiver in their confidence. Even without the big two hitting shots early, even with the Clippers pounding them mercilessly on and off the ball, OKC showed no signs of backing down or hanging their heads. They were outscored 30-14 in the first period, but “won” every other quarter to outlast the Clips. In winning 104-98 to advance past a talented LA Clippers team in six games, OKC may have jumped over a maturity hurdle, something needed with what’s waiting for them in the Western Conference Finals. The Spurs are the only team remaining with a home court advantage over OKC.

Here’s my game 6 wrap for KOSU Friday morning, with some video to doll it up. Be sure and listen weekday mornings to KOSU-FM and catch my weekly sports talk segments on KOSU.org.
