Game 6 is Saturday in Oklahoma City. "I have no clue, honestly," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said of the disparity. "I think every game, its a different animal. It really is. We talk to our team about that all the time.

The Spurs returned to the style of play that enabled them to win the series first two games by a combined 52 points. "We gave them everything they wanted," Oklahoma City coach Scott Brooks said. "They got the dribble drive, they got the 3-point line, and they got to the free-throw line." The Spurs were also 13 for 26 on 3-pointers and outrebounded the Thunder 48-35. San Antonio also limited Oklahoma City to four fast-break points after giving up 21 in Game 4.

Oklahoma City had just 34 points in the second half after scoring 32 in the first quarter. "Our shots werent falling for us," Durant said. "Weve got to stay aggressive and weve got to get stops. When we can't make a shot, weve got to play defence, and we didnt tonight."

Serge Ibaaka, who dominated the interior in Oklahoma City, was held to six points and two rebounds. Los Angeles Kings Jerseys China. The Spurs started Matt Bonner in place of Tiago Splitter to draw Ibaka out of the paint and it worked early. It also helped defensively, as Ibaka attacked Bonner but missed his first five shots on a series of running hooks. Duncan was also able to help defensively, rolling over to block a layup attempt by Ibaka. "He didnt have the games that he had the last two games, thats pretty clear," Brooks said. "I thought his energy was good. He competed. He missed some shots that he normally makes. (But) it was everybody. It was everybody."

He had four straight layups and then drained a 3-pointer with Parker closely defending. When asked if San Antonio had done anything differently to keep him out of the paint, Westbrook said, "nothing."

Diaws 3 gave San Antonio a 42-37 lead with 6:12left in the first half and resulted in an Oklahoma City timeout. Ginobilis 3 gave a 65-52 lead with 6.9 seconds left in the first half.
