Before Game 2, some Thunder benchwarmers explained their superstitions. After the player introductions, they hand out gum in a very particular order. If they screw the order up ... the team does not do well. That's the story anyway.

As it happens, after introductions in the very next game, Game 2, the Thunder fell behind mightily, which cost them a Finals game.

Everyone in the NBA has been dissecting why that happened, but to the Thunder bench -- or at least some of them -- the answer is clear. They screwed up the gum ritual.
