Kevin Durant's game-high 28 points to go with nine rebounds, five assists, and a block before fouling out were not enough as the Thunder dropped Game 1 of the WCF to the Spurs 122-105.
Durant will have to do more than that if he and the Thunder have any shot of defeating the Spurs this series as they will be playing without Serge Ibaka (calf) for the remainder of their playoff lives. The Thunder will look to even the series at a game apiece in Game 2 on Wednesday in San Antonio.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Zach Miller caught two passes on seven targets for 10 yards and a TD on Thursday night vs Green Bay.
Miller got the start in place of the injured Martellus Bennett on Thursday night. In all, he finished with two catches and a touchdown on seven targets, looking mediocre, however doing his best with the hand he was dealt. Anyone who started him in daily leagues could have expected better, however it is a bit spoiled to come away with much more than a TD as a definite backup. Consider him a wise play on Thursday night, and a keen start going forward at least until Bennett comes back healthy. Analysis: Dom Murtha
