The Oklahoma City Thunder responded to their Game 1 thumping. The Atlanta Hawks? Not so much.
How each team shows up for Game 3 of their respective series on Friday night will likely go a long way toward defining just how long these matchups will last. The Thunder host the San Antonio Spurs four days after they evened the series with a tense 98-97 win in San Antonio in Game 2.
The Hawks head home looking to find themselves after back-to-back losses in Cleveland to the Cavaliers.
The Thunder lost Game 1 by 32 points and were thoroughly embarrassed. But Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant got things going for Game 2 and head home looking to mimic that effort.
