Video: Tony Parker beats the Thunder at the buzzer

Nov 2, 2012, 12:16 AM EDT

This was a game the Thunder very much could have won. Most watching would say they should have won, but Tony Parker had other ideas.

With the game tied at 84 and with less than six seconds remaining, Parker began the Spurs’ final possession on the far side of the floor. He curled baseline and popped out to the perimeter, where he was left wide open to attempt the game-winning shot, one that he calmly drained to give his team its second win to start the season in as many nights.

    With Harden gone, Westbrook thinks he has to carry more of the load. I love Westbrook’s intensity and aggression, but he can get better shots. Let the “Westbrook stinks” arguments begin!

    Nice to have a 2013 Western Conference Championship series preview so early. And without Harden, this could be a big year for the Spurs. Anyone who thinks this year’s edition of the Lakers is going to crash the party is nuts.

    I didn’t get the sense that the Thunder should have won that game. It was close throughout and then Parker made two plays at the end. Could have gone either way.
