The Thunder got their first win in the series in game three at home on Sunday night, much thanks due to the return of Serge Ibaka, who had a huge impact on both ends of the floor. Not only did he shoot 6-7 and score 15 points, but his defensive presence entirely changed the game, as the Spurs, who had been shooting lights out and scoring bushels of points in the paint were shut down in game three.

The difference Ibaka makes cannot be overstated, and was obvious the other night, even when he isn't quite at full strength.  The Spurs are a very smart team and will no doubt make adjustments heading into game four; a win would give them control of the series and a 3-1 lead, a loss and the teams will be even heading back to San Antonio.
