Game 3: San Antonio Spurs 96 – LA Clippers 86
For the second game in a row Eric Bledsoe was kept check. After scoring 23 points in Game 1 the Spurs have learned how to guard the lighting fast guard. Bledsoe only had 2 points in 16 minutes yesterday in the loss to the Spurs. For most of the first half the Clippers were in control, even leading by 24 points at one point, but the Spurs played like the veterans they are and made the come back. Now the Clips are one game from elimination and the Spurs have pushed their winning streak to 17 games in a row. Game 4 is tonight at 10:30.
Game 4: Oklahoma City 103 – LA Lakers 100
Nazr continues to struggle in the playoffs as he will held scoreless for the third game in a row. However he continues to rack up fouls in his limited minutes, last night he picked up three fouls in four minutes. This may be just his role to slow the game down and provide some more rest for the starters. Like all of the games in this series Game 4 was another incredibly close game but last night it was Durant who stepped up and hit the big shot. The game was tied after a furious comeback by the Thunder and with 13 seconds to go Durant nailed the go ahead three to decide the game. Kobe missed his attempt to tie in the closing seconds. Now the series heads back to OKC and Game 5 will be Monday at 9:30.
