The Thunder held a team meeting on Wednesday morning after landing in the wee hours of the night after its Game 2 loss in San Antonio against the Spurs. Heading back home to Chesapeake Energy Arena for the third and fourth games of the Western Conference Finals, the Thunder knows it has an opportunity ahead of itself to get back into the series, starting one game, and one possession at a time in front of its home crowd.

SAN ANTONIO – The “hole” just kept getting deeper.

Down six to the San Antonio Spurs after the first quarter and 11 at the half, the Thunder suddenly was staring at a 22-point deficit with less than 17 minutes remaining in Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals.

An 8-0 run in 1 minute, 29 seconds pulled the Thunder within 80-66. Shots were starting to fall, the Spurs were starting to miss and, most important, the Thunder was getting to the free-throw line.

With 5:40 remaining in the game, the Thunder was within six points.
