After watching the Clippers outscore the Spurs by 22 points in the first quarter of Game Three of their playoff series, it appeared, if ever so briefly, that San Antonio was not as invincible as everyone thought. Then we saw them retaliate with a 50-17 run of their own and realized, perhaps they are.
At only 23 years old each, Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook are disturbingly good. The Los Angeles Lakers had to play their very best just to be able to stay on the same floor as them. The future of the league is in good hands.
In Game Three of the Lakers-Thunder series, the two teams combined to shoot 67-70 from the free throw line, with the Lakers going 41-42 and Kobe going 18-18. I’ve never gone 18-for-18 at anything.
