      OKC must bring steller play to San Antonio

      The Oklahoma City Thunder have flipped the script in their series with the San Antonio Spurs. The first two games in San Antonio the Spurs were the dominate team in every facet. They won both games in blowout fashion and every stat from shooting percentage to rebounds favored the home team.But in the last two contest's in been Oklahoma City that has dominated and at times had the Spurs frustrated and scratching their heads looking for a solution. The return of Serge Ibaka has been a big help but that doesn't explain everything especially considering Russell Westbrook's 40 point, 10 assists, 5 steal and 5 rebound performance in their game three win.The key for OKC now is will their game travel? What will make things different in the Alamo City Thursday night in game five?"We know what we have to do," said Thunder forward Kevin Durant. "We can't play like we did before which was too cool. Playing too cool gets you beat every time. We have to be engaged and ready for a dogfight. We know we haven't done anything except what we were supposed to do which is win at home."Durant is right. The Thunder have the momentum but all they've done is even the series at 2-2 and the Spurs still have home court advantage which means the Thunder are still in the spot where they must win at least one game in San Antonio if they're to win this series.
