And your team had FIVE straight opportunities to score and didn't take advantage of a single one of them. Oh and the team shot what, 50% on FTs for the night? The no-call sucks but Denver's execution (or lack thereof) down the stretch is what killed them, not the officiating.

That being said, this is going to be a great series.

I agree this call alone didn't seal the game exactly. However that call could have changed OKC being up 1 to Denver being up 3-4 points. That's HUGE. That changes the outcome of the game entirely.

Does Denver still lose? Could still happen easily. However I'd rather lose that way than lose because of something so obvious in favor of the Thunder.

Ruined a GREAT game and great performances by Durant\Russel. Pretty sure Westbrook got 2 points for that
