It seems like today should've been a national holiday with Stephen Curry having his MVP ceremony the day after his classic performance in the Golden State Warriors' Game 4 win against the Portland Trail Blazers last night.

I don't know about you, but I probably need more recovery time.

But the NBA playoffs go on tonight with the San Antonio Spurs hosting the Oklahoma City Thunder in a series tied at two games apiece.

And while we're still basking in the glow of Curry's success, OKC teammates Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook were able to celebrate a little history of their own today.

You all know what we want at this point: the longer this series goes to wear the Spurs and Thunder out, the better it is for the Warriors.

Enjoy the game tonight.
