Refs say they missed late foul on Waiters

Lead referee Ken Mauer said the officials missed a foul on Dion Waiters on the final possession: "However, upon review, we realize and we agree we should have had an offensive foul on the play. It's a play we've never seen before, ever."

The Thunder bounced back in impressive fashion from a 32-point drubbing in Game 1 to take Game 2, 98-97. It was a chaotic finish with the Thunder holding on for dear life, but they walk out of San Antonio with exactly what they needed -- a split.

ViewFromVegas of NBA Playoffs: favorites/underdogs went 1-1 ATS tonight to drop to 3-1 ATS this round and 29-18-1 ATS (61.7 percent) overall. Unders were 2-0 tonight and are 2-2 this round and continue to dominate overall at 33-15 (68.8 percent). Zig-zag theory starts 1-0 this round with Thunder bouncing back from Game 1 loss, but only 17-19-1 ATS overall.

Thunder beats Spurs 98-97 to even series. The ViewFromVegas is they did it as 7.5-point road underdogs and +310 on the money line. The game stayed under 201 points. The Spurs are the first favorite to fail to cover in the second round as faves are now 3-1 ATS. Over/unders are 2-2.

This is about as engaged as I've seen the Oklahoma City defense. Good help and quick rotations behind it.

The Thunder led 77-68 when Westbrook went to the bench with 3:41 left in the third. The Spurs closed on an 8-0 run to cut it to 77-76 headed to the fourth. With the importance of this game, makes sense to play Durant and Westbrook the entire fourth.

Royce Young ESPN Staff Writer 

The Thunder showed a positive response to a second quarter Spurs run to bounce back and lead 56-53 at half. Westbrook ran the show with 18 and 7 assists, with Durant shaking loose for 13. The Thunder talked about showing resolve. It'll be a long second half, but they've at least shown they can hang with the Spurs.

Somewhere Terrence Jones is watching what LaMarcus Aldridge is doing to the Thunder in this series and shuddering.

Would totally watch a one-on-one game between Enes Kanter and Boban Marjanovic.

Royce Young ESPN Staff Writer 

Thunder led 29-21 after a quarter, a 31-point turnaround from Game 1. But the Spurs open with back-to-back 3s to start the second quarter and suddenly that very good first quarter is nearly wiped out.
