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.

WALKING around 1 Harbour Blvd. in Camden in a pair of shorts, a T-shirt and a hard hat graced on the side by a 76ers emblem, coach Brett Brown is in a comfort zone. As he is about to enter the $75 million complex, which includes two buildings - one the actual practice facility and the other offices for front-office people and sales staff - Brown gets a little quicker in his step. His is a high-strung personality to begin with, but seeing this new chapter of his coaching life getting closer to completion amps him even more.

MYKE TAVARRES has a tattoo on his arm that reads: "If you do not try, then you do not do. And if you do not do, then why are you here?" His high school wrestling coach in Lake Oswego, Ore., used to recite the line before big matches. Tavarres was inspired enough by it to inscribe it on his body. I probably would've just written it on a Post-It note, but that's me. "This quote has gotten me through everything," he said. There's not much Tavarres has been reluctant to try, and very little he's failed at. He was a three-sport star in high school (football, wrestling, track)

One of the story lines that emerged from the NBA draft was "How about those plucky Villanova Wildcats, winning a national title without any drafted players!" No, no, a million times, no. Yes, Jay Wright deserves every bit of credit he's gotten. Wright pushed all the right X and O buttons, continually outcoaching some very impressive coaches. Villanova also won it all because it had the most depth of talent. Some of that talent you saw surely will end up in the NBA. Seniors Ryan Arcidiacono and Daniel Ochefu weren't drafted - and weren't expected to be - but they picked up free-agent deals in an instant.

SALT LAKE CITY - Forget hoping for a roster spot. Christian Wood is here playing like he's determined to be in the 76ers rotation. The perceived long shot to make the Sixers regular-season roster turned his second impressive performance Tuesday in the Utah Jazz Summer League. Wood finished with 19 points on 5-for-8 shooting in a 95-91 setback to the San Antonio Spurs at the Vivint Smart Home Arena. The 6-foot-11 center made 2 of 3 three-point shots and finished with seven rebounds. He scored a game-high 20 points Monday in a loss to the Boston Celtics.

THE THRILL of the NBA draft often lies more in the development of the known than of the unknown. That sounds counterintuitive, but think about it. Which players in recent draft history have supplied more unexpected results: The one-and-done talent mutants; or, the stay-in-school plodders who continue to blossom in college? Was it more fulfilling to watch LeBron exit high school as the top pick of the 2003 draft and enter superstar orbit . . . or to watch Steph Curry go from three-year gunner at Davidson, drafted seventh in 2009, to a two-time MVP?

OAKMONT, Pa. - According to no less of an authority than Roy McAvoy of "Tin Cup" fame, the best thing about the U.S. Open is that it's the most democratic golf tournament in the solar system. According to Chris Crawford, that would not be wrong. "I'm living proof of that," the 22-year-old Bensalem native said Monday afternoon at Oakmont Country Club, where he will soon play in the game's second major of the season. "I don't think there's a better example probably than me. " According to the USGA, 9,827 nonexempt players tried to qualify for this championship.

Question: I booked a round-trip frequent-flier ticket (25,000 miles) on American Airlines last year for a trip from Chicago to San Antonio when I learned that my Army son was going to be promoted to major in San Antonio on Labor Day weekend. As is common in the Army, he was sent to Fort Leavenworth, Kan., a few months later, so he had his promotion ceremony in Illinois, not Texas. I called American to see whether I could get my miles back and was told that it would cost me $150 to do so. I was wondering whether you thought there was any chance for me to get the miles back at no cost, or for a reduced cost, since it was only because of the military's change to my son's orders that I did not complete the trip as planned.

HERE ARE a couple of examples of the daily emails I get regarding the Sixers: * "When is the organization going to fire Brett Brown? The man probably has the worst record in pro sports history over a three-year period. His substitutions are baffling, his play-calling head-scratching and his defense is awful. And while they're at it, get rid of Sam Hinkie, too. " On the other end of the spectrum there is this: * "When is management going to give Brett Brown a true NBA roster to work with?
