OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) Kevin Durant scored 22 points, Thabo Sefolosha set playoff career-bests with 19 points and six steals, and the Oklahoma City Thunder snapped San Antonio’s 20-game winning streak by beating the Spurs 102-82 in Game 3 of the Western Conference finals on Thursday night.

Oklahoma City closed its series deficit to 2-1 and will host Game 4 on Saturday night.

Sefolosha threw a wrench in the Spurs’ well-oiled offense at the start, getting four steals in the first 3 minutes. The Spurs ended up committing a postseason-worst 21 turnovers and scoring their least points all season.

Tony Parker and Stephen Jackson led the Spurs with 16 points apiece. Tim Duncan had 11 points on 5-for-15 shooting, taking 11 of San Antonio’s first 25 shots as the offense went through the All-Star center instead of Parker.

The ‘Outkast’ song that didn’t make Big Boi’s: Sir Lucious Left Foot the Son of Chico Dusty album

“We tried to get everything solidified but Jive said, ‘Naw.” he explained. “Then I was going to take Dre off and make my own version [of Lookin for Ya], but then I thought, ‘No. F–k that. If he can’t be on it, then I’m not using it.” – Big Boi speaking of issues with Jive Records and Def Jam.

It’s clear that Jive Records nor Def Jam knew what they were doing when they didn’t let ‘Looking For Ya‘ with Big Boi, Andre 3000 and Sleepy Brown make the album cut. Surely the record sales for the critically acclaimed ‘Sir Lucious Left Foot the Son of Chico Dusty’ album, which is far indeed better than a lot of albums coming from some of ‘today’s’ favorite rappers. Does Big Boi have a right to be pissed? Heck yeah he does. Think about it. No Outkast album has sold less anything less than platinum. And if 1 million is flop (speaking of the Idlewild soundtrack) then that’s the best-selliing flop in hip hop history.

Boston Celtics vs Heat – Game 2 NBA Playoffs 2012 – Recap

Heat overcome Rondo, top Boston 115-111 in Game 2

MIAMI (AP) Rajon Rondo posted a stat line never before seen in NBA playoff history. He was on the court for every second of a game that finished more than three hours after it started. He scored more points in a single overtime than anyone this season.

His night was called incredible, amazing and unbelievable – and that was by the Miami Heat.

And when it was over, Rondo could only express disappointment that the Boston Celtics needed more.

LeBron James scored 34 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, Dwyane Wade scored eight of his 23 points in overtime and the Heat took a 2-0 lead in the Eastern Conference finals with a 115-111 win over the Celtics on Wednesday night, overcoming what will surely go down as the best game of Rondo’s career to move within six wins of an NBA title.

“We lost,” Rondo said, shrugging off talk of the historical ramifications of his night. “Simple as that.”

Rondo’s final numbers: 44 points, 10 assists, eight rebounds. He scored all 12 of Boston’s overtime points, giving the Celtics the lead three times, only to have the Heat answer each of those. And when he finally missed in the extra session – on a play where Rondo said he got struck in the face by Wade – then and only then could Miami put Boston away.

Game 3 is Friday night in Boston, where the Celtics will try to make this a series. No Celtics team has successfully rallied from an 0-2 hole since 1969.

Oklahoma Thunder vs San Antonio Spurs Game 2 – NBA Playoffs 2012 – Recap

Parker leads Spurs to 2-0 series lead

SAN ANTONIO (AP) Tony Parker and the San Antonio Spurs are making this look way too easy.

Parker had 34 points and eight assists, Manu Ginobili added 20 points and the Spurs stayed perfect in the playoffs with a 120-111 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 2 of the Western Conference finals Tuesday night.

So far, the Spurs have turned a hotly anticipated matchup between the league’s top two scoring teams into a lopsided mismatch more befitting of an early round.

Game 3 is Thursday night in Oklahoma City, and the Thunder can only hope that a change of venue throws San Antonio out of its groove. The Spurs put on an offensive clinic for three quarters on Tuesday night, shooting 60 percent and building a 22-point lead.

“We like to play like that,” said Parker, who hit 16 of 21 shots. “That’s the way we play.”

The Spurs set an NBA record with their 20th consecutive victory bridging the regular season and the playoffs. They came in sharing the longest such streak with the 2000-01 Lakers, who won 19 straight before losing to Philadelphia in the first game of the finals.

Those Lakers went on to win the championship and Parker’s performance is yet another reason to think the Spurs will do the same.

“It’s great and it is a great run,” said Tim Duncan, who had 11 points and 12 rebounds. “But we are only worried about the next two wins in this series. That is all that matters, at this point.”

The Thunder made a late surge to get within six points, but Parker, Ginobili and Duncan helped San Antonio finish them off. Oklahoma City is 5-0 at home in the playoffs, but only 14 teams have come back from 2-0 deficits to win a series in NBA playoff history.

Meagan Good responds to ‘church-goers’ and criticism regarding her bachelorette party

Seems that the 7th Day Adventist community critics aren’t quite impressed with or welcoming of actress Meagan Good, soon to be ‘first lady’ and wife of 7th Day Adventist preacher (and movie producer) DeVon Franklin. The 30-year-old actress performed a burlesque dance at the Pussycat Dolls Burlesque Saloon this past weekend in Las Vegas, Nevada amongst family and friends, as she’s gearing up for her nuptial. However, the ‘saints’ aren’t so pleased about that, feeling that Good isn’t quite the fit for a ‘first lady’.

The actress when on TWITTER to defend her Burlesque performance.

“Let’s get something straight … I wasn’t half naked last night … I was actually very covered up,not showing any more than I show when I dress up to go to events and let’s get something else straight .. I’m an actress, there will be many things narrow minded people deem unholy or not 1st lady like. But this is not so it’s about your relationship with God and your personal convictions …if you see footage you will see I was covered up having fun dancing and enjoying my self with my friends and family and absolutely not doing a striptease …smh people are ridiculous .. Can’t a girl enjoy her bachelorette party in peace?”
