OKLAHOMA CITY - Oklahoma City Thunder forward Serge Ibaka continues to work his way back from that calf injury that originally was deemed to be season ending but has since been upgraded to day to day status.  Ibaka is still not practicing with the team, instead doing light shooting and drills but he walked over to reporters at the practice facility and did not show much if any limp at all.
He said if he plays Sunday it won't be totally up to him and that if and when he plays he'll have to deal with some pain.
"I'm waiting on what the doctor tells me and how my body feels,' said Ibaka. 
Ibaka's teammates have taken a wait and see attitude when it comes to Ibaka playing against San Antonio.  They've all said they'd love to have him but they also stress their main focus is simply winning game three whether Ibaka plays or not.
"We're a confident group," said Kevin Durant.  "We know how bad the first two games were for us.  We want to correct it.  We have a lot of pride here too."
When you carry the title MVP on your resume like Durant does much is expected.  He knows ineffective play on offense and poor play on defense won't get it done.
"I gotta do more.  I got to dig deep and find out what it is to help my team more," were some of Durant's comments.  "I own up to everything. I own up to not playing well and our team losing two in a row by that much."
Acknowledging those things is an indication that the Thunder know Sunday night's game is a must win situation if this series is to be a series at all.
