4th Quarter Struggle for Kevin Durant in Game 2

The Spurs go-to guy, Tony Parker, was getting it done – just as he had all game on 4-5 shooting in the 4th quarter. The Thunder on the other hand got only a breakaway dunk from their star, Kevin Durant in the 4th. James Harden had an excellent 4th quarter, but with the hole OKC was in and the fact that they could not stop Parker meant they needed that kind of effort from all 3 of their stars down the stretch.
