Thunder “Relaxed” Late In Clippers Loss, Must “Turn The Page” For Game Five

After leading by 22 points in the first quarter and by as many as 16 in the fourth quarter, the Oklahoma City Thunder lost a heartbreaker to the Los Angeles Clippers 101-99 and tied their western conference NBA playoff series at two games a piece.

Scott Brooks, Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook all said the Thunder relaxed too much late in the game after building a double-digit lead, and it cost them a chance to go up 3-1 in the series.

The OKC trio also told the media that the team did plenty of good in game four and that’s something they can all learn from for the rest of the series.

Kevin Durant specifically mentioned that the Thunder must “turn the page” and move their focus to game five.

Heading into game five on Wednesday, May 13, the Thunder are 2-2 all time in game five of playoff series when they entered the game with two wins and two losses.

Game five of the Thunder’s series with the Clippers tips off at 8:30 p.m. CT inside The Peake on Wednesday, May 13.
