In the span of three days, the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the San Antonio Spurs as many times as they had in the last three years. And now the Western Conference finals are suddenly up for grabs. What once seemed like the continuation of one of the most dominant runs in NBA history has turned into a genuine toss-up of a series after the Thunder stopped San Antonio's perfect stretch with two convincing victories in half a week, including Saturday night's 109-103 victory in Game 4 in Oklahoma City.

SAN ANTONIO, Texas - Trailing in the fourth quarter, Gregg Popovich snarled an order in the huddle that the NBA coach of the year punctuated with a sharp and angry sweep of his hand. "I want some nasty!" But truthfully, Popovich was already getting what he really wanted: the San Antonio Spurs finally in a game they might actually lose. Popovich's caught-on-camera "nasty" command in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals is likely coming soon to T-shirts, Internet memes and the lexicon of the NBA playoffs for the foreseeable future.

RAY ALLEN'S three-pointer with 22.6 seconds left gave the Miami Heat the lead, and they held on to beat shorthanded San Antonio, 105-100, Thursday night to remain perfect at home this season. The Spurs played without Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Danny Green, all sent home to rest in a move that raised the ire of NBA commissioner David Stern, who said San Antonio would be sanctioned for that decision. Still, the Heat needed to rally late. Down by one, LeBron James nearly lost the ball in the lane, then recovered and found Allen - who has already hit three late-game threes to help Miami win at home this season, all set up by the reigning MVP. San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said the decision to rest Duncan, Parker, Ginobili and Green was in the team's best interest.

THE SOUL BLEW a chance for homefield advantage throughout the playoffs as its eight-game winning streak came to a grinding halt on Saturday. Dan Raudabaugh, who had been practically flawless for 2 months, threw five interceptions and the Soul offense hit every pothole it could in the 42-28 loss at San Antonio. A win earlier in the evening by Jacksonville relegates the Soul to the No. 2 seed in the American Conference. Philadelphia (12-6) hosts a first-round game against former coach Doug Plank and the Orlando Predators (7-11)

McRae, 23, has an NBA release clause in his contract, according to the website.

Jahlil Okafor learned it by the end of the second day, if he hadn't known it already: The 76ers will run you. They want to play fast, and they want their players to get from one end to the floor fast, and, if you're Okafor, they will want you to establish position in the post fast. So by 1 p.m. Friday, when another day of the Sixers' first summer minicamp was winding down and the pell-mell pace of practice had slowed, Okafor, like the rest of the players in camp, was dragging. For a post-practice shooting session, he hovered near the top of the key, a couple of feet inside the three-point arc, and his shooting form revealed his fatigue.

WHEN DUKE center Jahlil Okafor was asked in New York on Wednesday about possibly falling in the draft to the 76ers, the look on his face told a story better than any words could. It was a combination of, "That ain't gonna happen" and "No, I'm headed to Hollywood. " When Ohio State guard D'Angelo Russell was scooped by the Lakers at No. 2 last night, the obvious player to go next had to be Okafor. And Sam Hinkie scooped him up, adding another big man to a roster that includes Joel Embiid and Nerlens Noel.

By the time they moved to Woolwich Township, Tony Gioia and Grace Ellis had already had their lives altered for the worse; both had lost loved ones on 9/11. Denise Dales had a new perspective on life on that morning nearly 14 years ago, too. Then a Woodbury resident, she had plans to attend a 9 a.m. work meeting at the South Tower of the World Trade Center, but canceled, uneasy about taking her 2-month-old son along. Gioia, Ellis, and Dales, who also moved to Woolwich after the attacks, will be in the procession Wednesday when township officials bring a 4,000-pound steel beam - a relic from a day of tragedy - to the township from New York City, for a future 9/11 memorial in front of the town hall.

HARD TO BELIEVE, or maybe not, but 31 NBA champions have been crowned since the 76ers won the title in 1983 with their four-game sweep of the Los Angeles Lakers. Only eight teams have made up those 31 champions - Lakers (eight), Chicago (six), San Antonio (five), Detroit, Miami and Boston (three each), Houston (two) and Dallas (one) - while the winner of this year's Finals between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors will make it nine in 32. Cleveland has never won an NBA title and the Warriors haven't held the hardware since 1975.

Tim Duncan of the San Antonio Spurs turns 39 on Saturday, and the aging process for the best player on the best team of his generation has been gradually catching up with him. Coach Gregg Popovich says he believes Duncan will come back for another season, and that might be true, but it has become a popular theme among the national media to cover the Spurs during this postseason in the same way the Italian press chronicled the advance on Rome by the...

The 76ers entered the merciful final week of their season Wednesday night against the Washington Wizards, a team so disinterested in the outcome that star guard John Wall was given the night off to rest up for more important nights to come. Not that it mattered. The Wizards exploited a confused Sixers defense, shot 65.3 percent from the floor, and won, 119-90. As if that wasn't ugly enough, Nerlens Noel sprained his right ankle in the final quarter, apparently a significant sprain, and he is even money to be shut down for the rest of the season.

The chair he sat in for an interview, the swimsuit he donned for practice, the Graham Activities Building pool he nearly crossed without surfacing, they all looked too small for Reece Whitley. Though barely 15 - his birthday was earlier this month - Whitley is a 6-foot-8, 235-pound Penn Charter freshman, and when he mingles with swimming teammates, he looks more like their instructor than their peer. In fact, these days the only thing that seems large enough to fit Whitley is his enormous promise.

Isiah Perkins became Williamstown High School's quarterback as a senior and learned on the fly as the orchestrator of the Braves' new no-huddle, spread offense. He became an expert in making quick decisions. Except when it comes to his college destination. "I'm keeping my options open," Perkins said Friday. A senior who has been recruited mostly as a defensive back, Perkins has offers from five colleges: Villanova, Bucknell, Marist, New Hampshire and Sacred Heart. The 6-0, 180-pound Perkins made a recruiting visit to Sacred Heart last weekend and was scheduled to travel this weekend to New Hampshire.

THE MODEL WAS, is and always will be based in San Antonio. That is where 76ers coach Brett Brown learned the NBA game. It is where he witnessed four championship seasons. It is where he helped grow players who were important peripheral pieces into superstars. Twice a season now, Brown gets to see his former team play. And each time his team goes against the perennial power, the lessons are right there for his young team to absorb. The problem is that San Antonio still boasts superstars, namely Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili, each a pretty sure bet to be a Hall of Famer.

NEW YORK - Now it makes sense. 76ers coach Brett Brown confirmed Friday that Andrei Kirilenko has been suspended without pay. The forward has yet to report to the team after being acquired in a trade with the Brooklyn Nets on Dec. 11.  The 33-year-old refuses to play for the franchise. But the Sixers have been unwilling to release him from his expiring contract.  Kirilenko is unable to collect the remainder of his $3.3 million contract under the suspension. Brown acknowledged that he can't wait to see the Kirilenko situation get resolved by his joining the team or being released.
