Quote of the Day: Pop was there, he saw it.

Jun 3, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

Kevin Durant, Thunder, Spurs, Tim Dunan AP

And that’s why Pop’s the best.

Durant’s performance in Game 4 was not the first dominant performance Popovich has seen in the playoffs. He’s faced some of the greatest in the game, so he’s seen some big moments. This isn’t going to faze him but he is going to appreciate it. and more importantly, Popovich knows that players like Durant are going to have those nights and you can’t stop them or control them. You do your best. But the reason the Spurs lost was not because of Durant, but because of their defense on the rest of the Thunder, which was terrible.

But yes, he saw Durant and yes, he was dominant. Trust him. He was there.

    This series will go 7 games, with the Spurs winning. Then, on to kick LBJ’s butt in the finals. Book it, fellas.
    Next year the Thunder win it all.
    LBJ’S hd better start soon if he is going to back up his 8 championship prediction. Hint…., it ain’t happening. Nowhere close!!! You can book that sum beeeeoch too!!!

    OKC FTW! Funny how SAS fans were booing when OKC was doing the Hack-a-Shaq on them in game’s 1 & 2. How’s it like to taste your own medicine SAS? There’s no rule against it, but it’s a pathetic strategy by SAS & “PAPI” just to try & win a game. It’s not basketball anymore.

      Yeah good point. Shooting FTs has nothing to do w basketball… oh wait.
