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.

We know the Spurs won 67 games in the regular season and all. But did you know that when teams with 65 wins or more in the regular season go up 2-0 in a best-of-7 series, they're 35-0, per ESPN Stats and Information? So, this is pretty much a must win for OKC.

Back to back 3-pointers by Danny Green makes the score 85-82 with 6:40 left to play. The Spurs have the momentum, and appear poised to pull off the comeback. Green was calling for the ball before that last 3-pointer.

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.

Michael C. Wright ESPN Staff Writer 

The Spurs put on a nice little run to get back into this game, and they did it with strong defense. At the end of the third quarter, the Thunder lead 77-76. LaMarcus Aldridge leads the Spurs with 28 points, followed by Kawhi Leonard with 12 points.

Michael C. Wright ESPN Staff Writer 

The San Antonio Spurs weathered the early storm brought on by the Thunder, which led by as many as 13 points in the first quarter. The Spurs head into intermission trailing (56-53). LaMarcus Aldridge has been unreal, connecting on 9 of 11 for 22 points. Aldridge is 7 of 8 for 16 points when posting up, hitting 73.5 percent on such shots thus far in the playoffs.

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.
