Notable Thursday performances from prospects in the Rangers' minor league system. Triple-A Round Rock: RHP Nick Tepesch (4-2) went seven innings in a 4-1 win over Tacoma, giving up only a solo HR. CF Delino DeShields walked twice and scored two runs. Double-A Frisco: RF Preston Beck went 4 for 4 with a double and triple in a 3-1 loss to Tulsa.
It was simple enough to write the Warriors off when they were down 3-1, on the brink of elimination (only nine teams have ever come back from such a deficit), but they are not dead yet. The Thunder effectively blitzed them into submission in both games in Oklahoma City, and while Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant were busy morphing into their terrifying final forms, Steph Curry looked hobbled and Draymond Green looked overwhelmed.
