After losing Game 6 to the Golden State Warriors, Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and company will need to have the right mindset going into Game 7.
According to Tyler Conway, bleachreport.com:
“Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant said his team must turn the page after its Game 6 collapse against the defending NBA champion Golden State Warriors.
“If we walk in here like it’s a funeral, then we already lost,” Durant said of Sunday’s practice, via Anthony Slater of the Oklahoman. “Nobody walked in like that.”
The Thunder held an 83-75 lead heading into the fourth quarter and were ahead most of the period before falling apart. They made only one field goal in the final five minutes, which came off an Andre Roberson offensive rebound. Durant and Russell Westbrook combined for four missed shots and six turnovers in that stretch and finished the quarter 3-of-14.”
OKC needs to continue to play the way they playing in Game 6. The Golden State Warriors hit some really tough shots at the end. Having to keep making tough shots like that can where down a team. If OKC continues to go to the cup and take open mid range shots they should be fine. They were in control of Game 6 until the end; to me the momentum change once they try to match the Warriors 3pt shooting. No matter who wins Game 7 is sure to be a good one.
