The Spurs and Thunder are immersed in an intense battle on the court in the second round of the playoffs, but sideline reporter Craig Sager is waging a much more serious fight.

A few months ago, Sager revealed that his leukemia had returned and doctors were only giving him three to six months to live.

Fans, players, and coaches have been showering him with their thoughts and support ever since, and Sager has demonstrated his resiliency by remaining on the sidelines. However, the extent of his dedication was not known until last night.

During Game 5 between the Thunder and Spurs, Sager's daughter Kacy tweeted that her father is in the middle of chemo treatments in Houston but has still found a way to make it to the games.

The M.D. Anderson Cancer Center where Cager is receiving his treatment is about 200 miles from the Spurs' home in San Antonio. The dude is an inspiration; Sager's legend continues to grow.

Not surprisingly, he looked great on Tuesday night as well:
