Facing a three game deficit, Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer had few answers for Atlanta’s Game 4 strategy.
“Obviously, you don’t want to be outrebounded. You don’t go into a game saying, ‘Go ahead, take them all,'” Budenholzer said. “But we outrebounded them in the first game and lost. I think what matters more is who scores the most.”
Spurs 100, Thunder 96 (San Antonio leads series 2-1)
After a wild Game 2 finish, the Spurs took matters into their own hands in Game 3; receiving a combined 55 points from LaMarcus Aldridge and Kawhi Leonard and taking a 2-1 series advantage over OKC. Despite the L, Russell Westbrook scored a team-high 31 points.
OKC and San Antonio will next square off at 8:00 EDT on Sunday.
