Serge Ibaka spent some time after Game 4’s 109-103 victory over the Spurs taking some extra shots.
He still hasn’t missed.
Ibaka was 11-11 from the floor on Saturday night on his way to a career-high 26 points to help the Thunder even the series at two games apiece.
Kevin Durant was no slouch, either. He scored 18 of his 36 points in the final seven minutes to lead his team to a late charge that ensured the Spurs couldn’t close the gap.
Oklahoma City players Nazr Mohammed, Derek, Fisher, and James Harden were pumped about the win.
Both teams did their jobs and defended home. Gotta win 1 on the road 2 win this series. Were keeping our focus #StayHumble

Big win! #ThunderUp

And the rest of Twitter is back on the bandwagon.
Westbrook mature, too. Quit shooting and let Durant do his thang. Spurs played solid. Great victory for OKC. Thunder grew up tonight.

Sadly, many take the easy way out — pick the No.1 seed and the team that has won 4 titles. The Spurs were never going to beat the Thunder!

whoever wrote-off OKC a couple of days ago needs to seriously rethink their position; I've been saying Thunder-Heat Finals since December.
