Favorites Fight Off Elimination in NBA Playoffs
Losing the opening round could prove a fireable offense for Indiana Pacers coach Frank Vogel and Oklahoma City Thunder coach Scott Brooks. But not yet. Facing elimination in their respective best-of-seven series, both the Pacers and Thunder prevailed in Game 6, keeping their coaches out of the unemployment line. Kevin Durant led OKC over Memphis with 36 points and 10 rebounds, while David West and Paul George led Indiana over Atlanta with 24 points each. Both teams will get a final say in Game 7 in front of loud crowds in their home arenas.
