Five Quick Thoughts From a Thunder Fan About Thursday Night
1. Does it mean "we've got ourselves a series," or whatever sports-chat talking point is blaring out of your TV today? Probably not. As a Thunder fan, I've been repeatedly hit over the head with the fact that only 14 teams in the history of everything have come back from 2-0 down to win a seven-game NBA playoff series. And most of the losers of those series (in order: the '69 Warriors, the '69 Lakers, the '71 Knicks, the '77 Sixers, the '93 Knicks, the '94 Suns, the '95 Suns, the '04 Spurs, the '05 Rockets, the '05 Bulls, the '06 Mavs, the '07 Rockets, the '07 Pistons, and the '08 Hornets) weren't anywhere near the Spurs' level. After Game 2, I'm not sure the pickup team of the gods of Olympus was on the Spurs' level. (I wouldn't mind watching the gods of Olympus play the '69 Lakers, though.)
