      Thunder remain confident despite Game 1 loss

      Russell Westbrook addresses the media.
      The Oklahoma City Thunder got steam rolled in game one of their playoff series with San Antonio. The fact the Spurs won the game by 17 points doesn't tell how bad Oklahoma City played defensively. The 66 points the Spurs scored in the paint does. Or how about the 122 points the Thunder surrendered, or the 58 percent shooting San Antonio enjoyed? But the good thing is that it's just one game and one game does not make a series. "You never get too low on a loss," says Thunder center Kendrick Perkins. "The same thing happened in the Clipper series. You never know what to expect. They came out and punched us in the mouth. Now it's about how you're going to bounce back. This will test your character." Oklahoma City's next character test is Wednesday night in game two at 8:00 p.m.
