In the NBA, it was Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the San Antonio Spurs.  The Spurs beat up the Thunder in Game 1.  In game 2, the Spurs absolutely trounced the Thunder for most of the game.  San Antonio simply could not miss from behind the three-point line.  Tony Parker had an amazing game with 34 points and 8 assists.  These Spurs can pass the ball better than any team in the NBA.  But, in the 4th quarter, the Thunder came powering back with high-scoring from their Big 3:  Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and James Harden.  They even brought an 18 point lead down to 7 points.  But it was too little, too late, as the Spurs can not be swindled out of a victory at the end.  They went on to win and take a 2-0 lead in the series.  San Antonio 120, OKC 111.

Elsewhere in the NBA, some surprising news out of Los Angeles.  The Clippers had one of their best seasons in years.  This was mostly thanks to their addition of Chris Paul.  He completely turned that team around.  Throughout the season, head coach Vinny Del Negro caught a lot of flak for his poor coaching decisions.  Everyone said that the Clippers, with all their young talent, would be a title threat if they just had someone who knew how to coach them properly.  People thought they would get rid of Del Negro, and maybe bring in Stan Van Gundy from Orlando.  But yesterday the Clippers announced that Del Negro would be back for the 2012-2013 season.


Finally, in the NFL, former superstar Terrell Owens is still looking for a job.  He’s willing to play for any team that will give him a chance.  He’s 38 years old now, but still feels he’s got a little juice left.  After all, the 49ers are taking a chance on Randy Moss next season, so why can’t TO catch a break.  Owens has ownership in an indoor football league team called the Allen Wranglers.  He decided that he would play for them in the off-season, but yesterday, he was oddly cut… from his own team.  The team cited that he didn’t show up for practice, games, and even a charity event at a hospital.  They had seen enough, and cut ties with Owens.  With the cut, he also loses his ownership piece.  This guy’s glory days may be behind him.
