Will San Antonio bounce back tonight? Game 1 seemed to show the difference in overall talent level between the two teams, but OKC bounce back in a big way. However, the Thunder had to scratch and claw for the win. Can they do that game-in and game-out? The Spurs are a deeper team, so with four days off, look for San Antonio to come out strong and be too much for the Thunder tonight. LaMarcus Aldridge should be able to continue his dominant performance and carry the Spurs to the win.
