Oklahoma City Thunder vs San Antonio Spurs (By: Miyagi)
The Spurs needed 2 overtimes to take the W in the first game of the series against the Thunder, a couple of days ago, in what was a thrilling encounter which literally went down to the wire. DeRozan had a couple of chances to get the job done in regular time and in the first overtime but he really struggled from the field.
George gave a seminar on how to play lockdown defense and DeRozan must have felt extremely lonely after the end of that game, so that has to be acknowledged, but still the Thunder (and George)are doing a terrible job defending DeRozan's position during their last 5 games as they rank 29th in the league in points allowed from that position during that span. DeRozan will have extra motivation and he gets an instant chance to get his revenge for that poor game, while its highly unlikely that George will repeat that performance and that high intensity in defense since he already has a hell of a job carrying the Thunders offensively. It's a very decent line and DeRozan will have his chance while the Thunders will be busy dealing with Aldridge's threat who destroyed them the other day.
