Day 31 – Spurs streak still alive

So the incredible regular season / post season streak continues for the Spurs (now at 20 wins), and the Thunder are in a 0-2 hole needing to win four of the next five.

Yeah so we missed Day 16… Rob’s got you covered on that tomorrow 3 votes – Steve Nash: After playing one of the worst games of his playoff career in the close-out win against Portland, the Nashmeister rebounded with a masterful display. Looking more like Tony Parker than Steve Nash, he knifed through the San […]
