>> when people lie against you and people make up stories, at the end of the day the evidence will be how you conduct yourself. the evidence against it will be how you talk to people, how you treat people and how you go to a meeting to discuss the opportunity. it has been tweeted that i am in a meeting and being feared. that's not how you do business. >> the nba mvp durant before game two. the third quarter and rise and fire. russell westbrook exploring with 31. blake griffin and look at the replay. blake griffin is a huge dunker. he wants no part of this. i am not going to be on your poster, dude. okc rolls 112-101 to even the series at a game apiece. >> thanks, larry. dog: oh, boy! mattress discounters memorial day sale.
