Research Notes

  • From Elias: the Spurs are the 4th team in the current playoff seeding format (since 1983-84 season) to have back to back 1 seeds and not advance to the NBA Finals. The Chicago Bulls also joined this list this year after getting ousted in the 1st round by the 76ers.

  • After winning 20 straight games over a period of 48 days, it all came a part in the span of a week for the San Antonio Spurs.In losing the last 4 games of the series to the Thunder - their only 4-game skid of the season - the Spurs had a near total reversal of the numbers they put during their 20-game win streak.

  • In Game 6, Tony Parker set personal postseason highs in field goals made and attempted (9-of-14) inside 10 feet of the basket this postseason, but continued to struggle from distance. Parker was 3-of-13 (23.1 percent) from 10 feet and beyond, including 0-of-7 in the second half. Parker shot under 30 percent from such distances over the last four games of the series.

  • The Thunder continued to limit the Spurs' pick-and-roll offense in Game 6, allowing 19 points on 8-of-20 shooting on such plays (3-of-10, 6 points in 2nd half). The Spurs scored over 20 points on pick-and-rolls just once (Game 5) in the last four games of the series after scoring 30 in each of the first two games.

  • Kevin Durant scored 25 points on 11-of-13 shooting (84.6 percent) when coming off screens in the last four games of the Western Conference Finals, including 9 points on 4-of-5 shooting in Game 6. In the first 11 games of the postseason, Durant had scored 30 points and made a total of 13 field goals when coming off screens (56.5 percent shooting).

  • The Thunder shot 15-of-25 (60.0 percent) from inside 5 feet in Game 6 of the Western Conference Finals, with a notable uptick in production from that range in the second half (10-for-14, 71.4 percent). The Thunder shot at least 57 percent in the last four games of the series after shooting below 47 percent in the first two games.

  • Kevin Durant played all 48 minutes for the Thunder. It's the first time in his playoff career he's played every minute of the game.But he'll have plenty of time to rest - Game 1 isn't until Tuesday night.

  • Tony Parker finished with 21 points and 10 assists in the first half.At least going back to 1996, no player has had 20 points and 10 assists in a half of a playoff game.In fact in that time period, the most points a player had in a playoff half where he had 10 assists was 16 by Jason Kidd in 2000.

  • Tony Parker finished with 17 points and 5 assists in the 1st quarter.Only ONE other player since 1996 has finished with 17 points and 5 assists in a playoff quarter: Deron Williams in 2007 against...Tony Parker's Spurs.Williams did it in the 4th quarter.

  • With 7 FG, 5 assists and 2-3 at the free throw line, Parker has scored or assisted on all of the Spurs first 25 points.Of the Spurs first 12 FG, Parker made 7 of them and assisted on the other 5.
