Thunder Not Caught Up in Celebration
The stench of cigar smoke didn’t fill the air inside the home locker room at Chesapeake Energy Arena. Not a single champagne bottle was in sight.
The celebration — if you dare deem it such — that capped the biggest victory in Oklahoma City Thunder history was about as constrained as it could possibly be.
Because the job is not done.
“We didn’t want to just get to the Western Conference Finals, because no one remembers who was in the Finals in 2012,” said veteran Nazr Mohammed. “Who’s going to care in a couple of years? You only remember who won”
(Said Kevin Durant:) “It’s a great feeling right now, but tomorrow we’ve just got to get over it and get ready to see who we play.”
