Trailing by nearly 20 points for most of the third quarter, the Thunder decided to keep putting San Antonio center Tiago Splitter on the free-throw line with the Hack-A-Splitter. That, or Kevin Durant just really likes him.
Splitter is 6-for-12 from the free-throw line and the Spurs lead 92-76 after three quarters. As a result of the Spurs fans gave Splitter a standing ovation. Durant has 27 points to lead all scorers.
