The Spurs defeated the OKC Thunder in OT last night 109-108 despite playing without Tim Duncan. It’s not that Duncan was hurt or anything, but Pop decided to rest him after he played 40 minutes the night before. Have no fear, DeJuan is here! Blair, who only played seven minutes in the previous game, played 31 minutes in this one and had a MONSTER game with 28 points and 21 rebounds before fouling out. The biggest play of the night, however, belonged to Manu Ginobili. With the Thunder up one and mere seconds left in the overtime period, an errant pass went off McDyess and Manu saved it with a ridiculous diving pass to George Hill in the corner who found Richard Jefferson for the game winning shot. Nine seconds left. Thunder miss. Game over. All is right with the world. Peep the video below to see for yourself.
