There were moments in the fourth quarter when the Thunder looked like a team that could make a comeback. They were cutting off the lane, forcing contested jumpers, getting some points in transition. There seemed to be hope. Faint hope down 7 with 1:30 left to go, but we saw what the Thunder did to the Lakers at the end of games.

Then Manu Ginobili stuck a dagger three in that hope.

Any that was remaining Tony Parker did away with when he got in the lane next possession.

OKC needs to find a way to rekindle that flame of hope at home, and quickly turn it into a fire.
