Kawhi Leonard revealed that he's super particular about the water he drinks

Kawhi Leonard revealed that he's super particular about the water he drinks

The victory snapped a four-game losing streak for OKC (36-29), and ended San Antonio's nine-game winning streak. Russell Westbrook signed another triple-double in a flawless night for Billy Donovan's team.

Not even his staunchest critics can poke holes in a performance that included 23 points, 13 rebounds, 13 assists and just three turnovers in 35 soul-drenching minutes against the NBA's top defensive team. Yet there really is much more to National Basketball Association success than statistical stunts like the triple-doubles, or even the scoring crown, which Westbrook is also in position to claim. Oscar Robertson holds the record at 41. With a matchup looming against the #1 seed Golden State Warriors on Saturday, Leonard's health is a major factor. Still, it warrants mentioning that as hot as they've been and as close as they are to Warriors, their 50-14 record is four games worse than it was at this point previous year.

Danny Green added 14 points and made four 3-pointers, as did Mills. Oklahoma City led 82-71 at the end of the third quarter. The Thunder go as Westbrook goes, and against a healthy Spurs squad, the Spurs would beat them in five games, maybe six.

The Spurs simply came out flat on the road, and for the first time in the past nine games, the Spurs weren't able to muster up a comeback victory. Over the next 27 minutes and 53 seconds, the Spurs outscored us 81-43.

"It's astounding", Popovich said.


"We definitely (have) shown that the team has a lot of character in the last few games", Spurs center Pau Gasol said. They trailed by 28 points in the first quarter.

The dumb narrative about the game is going to be that Russell Westbrook outplayed Kawhi Leonard in their mano-a-mano duel for the MVP, but that didn't have much to do with anything. Webber kept saying the Thunder have basically no half-court offense, because they have "nobody" who can knock down shots. Guard Dejounte Murray started in place of Parker. New addition Doug McDermott added 11 points on five-of-10 shooting.

The Thunder hit 54.2 percent from the field in the second quarter, pushing the lead as high as 12.

SAN ANTONIO (AP) - The San Antonio Spurs demonstrated they are perfectly capable of rallying in the final quarter to win without Kawhi Leonard. This is third face game for both of them in this season.
