Twitter reacts to Thunder eliminating Spurs, possible end of Big 3
The Oklahoma City Thunder eliminated the San Antonio Spurs, 113-99, in Game 6 of the Western Conference Semifinals on Thursday to move on to the Western Conference Finals to face the Golden State Warriors.
While there was a mix of shock and excitement surrounding the Thunder's upset (it was an upset, if only slightly) and their upcoming matchup with the Warriors, there was primarily sadness and nostalgia regarding the possible end of the Spurs' Big 3 era, as Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili may not return next season despite the team's overwhelming success this season.
It was a wild night for basketball Twitter. Here's some of the reaction:
