Diaw leaves the bench and allows his men to take the lead after a 10-4. Reggie Jackson (21 points) , Durant and Westbrook do the job and joined the Thunder locker room with a 7 points mattress:49 -42.
In the second period, San Antonio should continue this Game 6 without their point guard Tony Parker hit in the ankle. Cory Joseph took control of post 1. Texans tied back quickly after a 9-2. Russell Westbrook and Jackson returned to the bench after four fouls each. Boris Diaw, Danni Green and co showered a 10-0 to the men of Scott Brooks; 69-79 at the start of the fourth quarter time.

Except Derek Fisher (5 points) all points of OKC were scored by Durant, Westbrook, Ibaka and Jackson. While 10 players of Texans found the target.
