There we were… 7:45 to go in the 3rd, the C's looking sluggish, and the ball in the captain's hand…
Time to wake up the crowd, go on a run, and win this game!
BOOOM. THUNDER DUNK IN THE LANE!!
That cut the lead to six. Then the C's got a stop, scored, and OKC called a timeout.
Unfortunately, OKC didn't get the script. Russell Westbrook was canning jumpers left and right… getting hot because of early lax defense and staying hot the rest of the way…. and the rest of the Thunder were getting to the line like crazy.
That's what happens when you let a good player get confident and you play like ass. Pierce's dunk should have been a turning point in a close game. Instead, it was just a tease in a disappointing loss.
