Steven Adams ‘almost fainted’ from crowd noise during Game 4


Oklahoma City Thunder fans were so loud during their team’s Game 4 win over the San Antonio Spurs Sunday night that one player almost passed out.

Facing what was basically a must-win, the Thunder found themselves trailing by four heading into the fourth quarter. A loss would have meant allowing the Spurs to take a 3-1 series lead back to San Antonio with a chance to close things out. OKC rose to the occasion by outscoring the Spurs 34-16 in the fourth quarter.

How loud were the fans at Chesapeake Energy Arena? Steven Adams tried to describe it.

Kevin Durant, who scored a game-high 41 points, was equally impressed.

After they were blown out in Game 1, the Thunder have played much better basketball and look like they actually have a chance to knock off the heavily-favored Spurs. If you have heard the rumors about Durant’s future, you know how important this series is for OKC. The fans would be wise to continue to impress him with the noise level when the team returns home for Game 6, even if it means Adams could faint.
