The Spurs jumped out to an early eight-point advantage after the first term, but a big third quarter from the Thunder saw them steal the momentum. The Thunder are 2-5 ATS in their last seven games following a loss and 2-5 ATS in their last seven games playing on one days rest.

On March 23 previous year, Aldridge had set a career-high by scoring 45 points, the most by any Spurs player since Tony Parker scored 55 against the Minnesota Timberwolves in November 2008. However, after his exploit against the Thunder, David Robinson and George Gervin are the only players in Spurs history to have scored more points in a single game than Aldridge. Robinson had 71 points in 1994, while Gervin posted 63 points in 1978.

"I was just trying to be dominant down there", Aldridge told TNT. With a daunting matchup against the Warriors in round one, the Spurs exited the first round with just one playoff win and a sour taste in their mouths. San Antonio finished the game 16-for-19 from 3-point range, making 84.2 percent. Kyrie Irving led all players with 22.

I'm grateful for the opportunity and responsibility Dee and Jimmy Haslam have granted me. "I think this is the direction". Kitchens had fun with the comment and got the room laughing. "We saw firsthand what Freddie is able to do".

The Spurs' 154 points were the most they scored since putting 161 past the Denver Nuggets in 1990, while Oklahoma's 147 was just short of the 148 they scored in January a year ago against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Spurs have undeniably been one of the hottest teams in the league as they look like they've finally found a way to work around two dominant mid-range scorers in DeRozan and LaMarcus, but they had to shoot the lights out to scrape by on Thursday.

Aldridge is the ninth different player to score at least 50 in an National Basketball Association game this year, joining Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin, LeBron James, Derrick Rose, Klay Thompson, Kemba Walker, and, James Harden. Westbrook's 24 assists were a career-high and the most assists in a game since Rajon Rondo's 25 in 2017. It was Westbrook's second career 20-10-20 game, putting him behind only Magic Johnson and Oscar Robertson (both with three) in that category, according to ESPN. The Thunder certainly haven't been at their best lately but they have won 14 of their last 15 games as home favorites against the Spurs who had to be near-perfect just to scrape by in double overtime.
