tie it. they'll also look at the clock to see if there's any time remaining but i don't think so. >> jeff: i love the strategy of the warriors not to foul durant immediately but to trap. durant or one of the other oklahoma city players should have called a timeout. >> mike: first thompson with the deflection and then green with a great save. iguodala is open. the foul clearly came before the buzzer. that's the first thing scott foster will check and then they'll check to see if they put any time on the clock. too. >> mark: i'm shocked. if you're okc you got to call a timeout in that situation. iguodala is not known to be a great free throw shooter. >> mike: he's 61% from the line
these are his first attempts of the night. there's 7/10 remaining, so even if he hits these two, the thunder can call timeout and advance the ball and get off a quality shot. you can catch and shoot, even catch and turn with 7/10 of a second. right now the key for golden state, two huge free throws. one down. the veteran, iguodala, last year's finals mvp. that is two clutch free throws
andre iguodala ties the game. now okc uses their final timeout and will advance the ball to try and win it at the buzzer. >> mark: i'd rather have a guy that could care less about the repercussions of missing than free throw shooting. those are two big free throws. look, it's all right. way to handle your-wise -- business. >> jeff: i'd rather have a great free throw shooter. >> mark: i know some that would be scared in that situation. >> mike: they have time to get off a quality shot here. what do you expect and look for? >> mark: it's a quick hitter. >> jeff: throw it to kevin durant. >> mike: westbrook will inbound and they put bogut on the inbound. thunder do not have a foul to
roberson comes back in the game. they only had four guys out there, ibaka, durant, waiters also out there. >> jeff: don't be surprised if they use durant initially as a screener to try to open up somebody and force a miscommunication. >> mike: inside, durant puts it up. overtime. we get five more minutes of this. what a comeback from golden state down 12 here in the fourth quarter. andre iguodala hits two clutch free throws, and we'll have an extra session. >> mark: this is good defense by draymond green, the contest, makeable shot. you got to live with it. >> mike: this presentation of nba saturday primetime continues

one of the key things, a lot of teams in that situation situation would just foul kevin durant as opposed to with the clock winding down, precious seconds ticking away, they don't foul the rim. they try and force the turnover which they obviously did. >> mark: that's something you talk about in the huddle. everybody is anticipating a foul in that situation. great execution. >> jeff: absolutely. good read by klay thompson to gain the deflection and then the pursuit by green. >> mike: again, it doesn't get much better than this in terms of nba action and we get five more minutes on the clock. >> jeff: i'm interested in the mind-set of oklahoma city in that you can be playing backwards right now instead of forwards thinking about the opportunity you let maybe slip by versus the opportunity still at hand. they've got to gather themselves. >> mark: a tough task for okc is now the frustration in having to win the game two times.

curry, turns the corner, contact as he drives, pushing in the back. >> jeff: i always think about this. why do we not give people an extra foul when they go into overtime? who wants to see durant out, besides steve kerr and the warriors. >> mark: i don't agree with that. >> jeff: of course not. you're like mike, you guys love foul trouble. >> mark: no, no, no. >> jeff: you love it. free throws and foul trouble. >> mark: if i'm the opposition and kevin durant has six fouls and steph curry misses a free throw, i don't want him to have the luxury of staying in the ball game. >> mike: durant hasn't fouled out of a game in three years. >> mark: westbrook, continue off that high pick and roll to make plays either for yourself or make guys better. >> mike: westbrook attacks, goes at green, tries to get it inside.
