UPDATES & NEWS
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
Update: Corey Dickerson was removed from Saturday's game with a left quad injury.
While the news regarding Dickerson's plantar fasciitis was positive, he was removed after he fouled a ball off his back leg and is now day-to-day with what the team is calling a quad injury. When his leg appeared to be swollen, manager Walt Weiss opted to play it safe and remove Dickerson who had gone 0-for-3 in Saturday's game against the Giants. Consider him day-to-day for right now and figure he'll be a game-time decision for Sunday. Analysis: Howard Bender
