The Spurs had a chance to win in the final seconds, but Patty Mills missed a potential game-winner when he air-balled his 3-point attempt. Mills' shot came after the Spurs stole an inbounds pass, during which Thunder forward Dion Waiters made physical contact with Spurs guard Manu Ginobili while inbounding the ball. But officials failed to blow their whistle.
Regardless, Game 2 was a complete turnaround from Game 1 for Oklahoma City.
“Been there before. It’s one game," Westbrook said of his team's 32-point loss on Saturday. "Regardless of how many you lose by, they’re just up 1-0.”

Stud of the Night
LaMarcus Aldridge played out of his ever-loving mind Monday, scoring 41 points on 15-for-21 shooting in the loss. He is 33 for 44 from the field through two games in the series.
Dud of the Night
The Hawks' starting backcourt of Kyle Korver and Jeff Teague didn’t perform up to snuff. Teague was held to just eight points on 2-for-9 shooting and Korver only attempted one shot in over 36 minutes, finishing with three points.
Tweet of the Night
The Cavs' victory helped push LeBron James’ playoff win total to 120, one more than Michael Jordan had in his postseason career. It took him four more games, however, which is how many more championships Jordan has than James. Just thought we’d point that out.
