Things definitely got intense on the court Tuesday night as the Oklahoma City Thunder defeated the Los Angeles Clippers to take a 3-2 lead in the series.
That intensity was on display in the stands too, as demonstrated by this fan reaction to one of Russell Westbrook’s three game winning free throws.
I couldn’t imagine a more pressure-packed situation than having to drain three free throws with 6.5 seconds left. But Wesbrook went out there like the cool customer he is and made all three to give OKC the lead.
It was so nerve wracking that Kevin Durant couldn’t even watch.
Now all the pressure is on L.A. as they try to avoid elimination. Hopefully the next game can go down without any controversy. The Clippers lately can’t seem to escape it. Doc Rivers is hoping for a nice, quiet, normal game this time.
But the way these playoffs have gone, the chances of a normal, nice, quiet game…yeah, you can pretty much forget it. The next game will be totally nuts. It will probably take nuts to a new level.
It will probably be totally bonkers.
