The basketball gods have blessed us with a showdown of epic proportion. Kawhi once said he would rather stop a superstar player from scoring, than scoring 50 points himself. The Spurs are going to need him to do both in this series against the Thunder.

Vegas is like a girlfriend who is not sure if she likes you or not. One day you're hot, next day you're cold. Funny thing about the Spurs is, they don't care.
